Founding Director & Country Specialist
Travel is in my blood. My parents lived and met in Asia and first introduced me to the Far East as a teenager and my love of the Orient has grown exponentially year on year. I adore the vibrancy of the colours, sights, smells and cuisine not to mention the people.
After leaving school I took every opportunity to travel, starting with half a year exploring East Africa before taking a degree in Business Management.
After another 6 months discovering South America I joined cazenove+loyd for 10 years, ultimately heading up their Asia+The Middle East team for 5 years, before launching Wix Squared.
Whether on business or for the sheer joy of it, I have visited some 40 countries, developing invaluable first-hand knowledge and personal contacts in each destination. Condé Nast Traveler have also named me as one of their top travel specialists 2019-2024, with a focus on Morocco from where I am currently based.
Director & Events Manager
I have lived “Hospitality” since I was a toddler, since my father was an hotelier. I took my degree in International Hospitality Management, during which I had a year with the Four Seasons. I then spent several years with the Admirable Crichton where I learnt to achieve the unachievable under the wing of the incomparable Johnny Roxburgh.
I have designed and executed events all over the world, gaining invaluable experience that will ensure that your party exceeds your expectations and dreams, faultlessly and on budget.
With exciting far flung places becoming more accessible, there are so many stunning locations that we can access to ensure that you and your guests have the perfect unique celebration, whatever the occasion.
My best ever gift, was a round-the-world-ticket given me by my parents for my 21st birthday. I travelled solo for fear of having to compromise my itinerary for 3 years, working as I went.
The majority of this time was spent exploring the bush and sailing, in Australasia and I embrace the affinity I have in both New Zealand and Australia, not just because I have a heavy deposit of family there but also, because I have a strong sense of admiration of the indigenous identities who willingly share their traditions, culture and lands.
Returning to the UK, I have relished the opportunity to engage with Wix Squared and spread my wings again in what is a fascinating and ever changing industry.
My expertise lies specifically in North Africa, the Middle East and Australasia and I believe that I have a grounded take on what it takes to make an ordinary holiday, extraordinary. The devil is in the detail as they say, and irrespective of what our client’s budget, time is never better spent on reconnaissance, listening to their ideas, and curating an itinerary to fit like a glove.
