    Photography: My goal is to provide high-quality photos of my stays for use in your own social media but also for my personal project - a Photobook celebrating the joys of Travel Volunteerism

  • Description

    I am a 61-year-old former corporate executive who is transitioning to a life of value and meaning.
    I've come to the conclusion that too many people in this world are uneducated about, and lack a true understanding of other cultures, and I wish to do what I can in some small way to change this.
    I have begun a personal journey to encourage others to get out of their safe zones and see what the rest of the world is really like. I believe organizations like Workaway to be the perfect medium to help accomplish this.

    I have lived in Singapore and the United States, and have traveled extensively.

    I am a photographic enthusiast and I am on my way to becoming a professional adventure and travel photographer and storyteller, with the aim of producing a series of Photobooks detailing the joys of Volunteer Travel.

    I like to think I am a pretty good cook, but I am eager to learn as much as possible about local culinary traditions.

    I wish I could speak 17 languages but I only speak English - though this doesn't mean sign language doesn't work if needed! I am however qualified in Teaching English as a Foreign Language.
