Senior Travel Specialist
I've worked in the travel industry since finishing university, where I studied Spanish. I initially helped to organise gap-year and round-the-world backpacking holidays, and dabbled in the world of events and business travel, but was quickly lured into the luxury-travel life. I now love arranging tailor-made holidays and honeymoons for Smith members around the world. I tend to focus on getaways to Kenya, Myanmar, Japan, New England, and Egypt, and punctuate my work with as many of my own holidays as possible. At last count, I've visited a respectable 50 countries.

The holiday doesn’t officially start for me until I’ve had my post-take off G&T; I love Galician brand Nordes Atlantic, which you drink with a grape and bay leaf, but it’s hard to come by on trolley service, so I settle for a Bombay Sapphire while in the air.
Tokyo is such a delightful assault on the senses, and exploring there felt like being in a fast-paced computer game at times. The food is some of the most challenging I've come across, and I love the striking scenery of the Japanese Alps, where we had the luck of crossing tracks with a bear.View Hotels
I wish I was...
Browsing the streets of San Telmo, Buenos Aires for antiques in the shops. I’d also swing by Plaza Dorrego to see if any professional dancers are tango-ing for the crowds. I'd also nip into Bar Plaza Dorrego, on the corner, then stroll through Mercado San Telmo to pick up tasty treats.
