|A country lad with an accounting background, who bought a one way ticket to London in 1979. After punching a double decker bus around Europe, Scandinavia, North Africa, Russia, the former Eastern Bloc, Canada, the USA and Mexico for Top Deck Travel for almost six years, I returned to Australia.
On my return I managed retail agencies for ten years before biting the bullet in 1995 and opening Harvey World Travel in East Maitland. Sadly after 18 years the Harvey World Travel was swallowed up by a multi-national and therefore the change was made to join Travellers Choice, to enable us to continue offering what the client required not what a multi-national demanded.
I have been here for over 21 years now and love the Hunter Valley area. My aim is to visit 100 countries and invest those experiences and knowledge into my client’s holidays... Only 30 odd countries to go! Using my knowledge as a driver and tour leader with Top Deck Travel, I have been putting together and escorting small group tours to all parts of the world since 2005. I am proud to say, I have clients who have been on every one of my tours.
Who else has a job where you make dreams come true?
|Originally from Guyra, I have been working in the Travel Industry since 2005. My first position was with Scenic Tours located in Newcastle.
In 2013 I made the decision to come closer to home and secured my position at Greenhills Travel Centre. I have been fortunate enough to travel extensively through Europe, UK, Ireland and Scotland. I have also been to West Coast Canada with Scenic Tours, Hawaii, South Pacific Islands, Thailand, Dubai and Bali.
After 3 months traveling around North and South America in 2013/14, I cannot put into words how fantastic my travels were, and I now use my knowledge of these destinations to make my client's holiday very special.

|I have been working in the travel industry and at Greenhills Travel Centre for over 14 years now. I’ve always had a passion for the travel industry and I love that I am able to do a job where I genuinely love what I do.
I have been very fortunate to visit some of the most beautiful places the world has to offer and to date my career has seen me travel to the USA including Hawaii, the Cook Islands, Samoa, Fiji, Vanuatu, New Zealand, Bali, Hong Kong, Macau, Bangkok, London, Europe (with Contiki), Canada (a Scenic tours itinerary including the Rocky Mountaineer), a P&O Pacific Cruise, Tropical North Queensland and the Whitsunday Islands.
My favourite destinations include New York, Hawaii, the Cook Islands and the south island of New Zealand.
Since the birth of my two children, in 2008 and 2011, my time in the office has reduced. However my love for travel has not and I look forward to introducing my children to the new and exciting experiences that one can only find with a passport and sense of adventure!
