Meet The Team


Specialty - Dive, Ski and Tailor Made Tours

After leaving school I was lured by into the City by financial rewards. Following Black Monday I set out on a new odyssey. Having started diving at 10, with BSAC Abbey Wood, and skiing with school I planned to combine these two loves and see the world. Over the ensuing 8 years I mixed Dive instruction and guiding with ski seasonaire work in both the northern and southern hemispheres. Eventually the call of England’s sunny south coast became too great, so I combined my love of travel with a ‘proper job’. Working in Tour Operating, from the UK’s largest long-haul operator to running my own activity travel organisor. More recently I indulged  a desire to sail by working for the world’s leading yacht charter company. I'm now enjoying family life and getting back to my roots planning proper holidays for real people.


Specialty - Dive, Ski, Windsurf, Kitesurf, Tailor Made Tours

Ever since I can remember I have wanted to be on or under the water and so, combined with my passion for travel, I find myself in the perfect job! Since graduating I have traveled extensively around the world to include most of North, East and South Africa, many Mediterranean locations but only scratched the surface of Asia with a couple of trips to Bali…which was amazing. For the future I would like to see more of Asia and the western hemisphere. I have worked in the travel industry for almost 20 years now and I can’t imagine doing anything else. I love talking to clients about the places I have visited and sharing my passion for the sports. For me the most rewarding part of the job is being able to put all my experience and knowledge into providing an amazing tailor made tours for that special trip.


Admin Manager

  I began my career in travel back in the early 1980’s and, after less than a year in the job, found myself managing a high street agency. Over the years I went on to work for a few of the “big names” in the industry and was one of the 12 people who, back in the late 90’s, were responsible for setting up and opening a brand new high street chain which, I am pleased to say, is still running today (although the parent company decided to change its name a few years ago). I joined Planet about 5 years ago and, since then, have seen the company go from strength to strength with the focus shifting dramatically towards making specialised holidays for our specialist clients. These days, as I contemplate entering my “middle age” years, I divide my time between taking care of the administration at Planet and having plenty of fun times with my young son.


Specialty - Windsurf, Kitesurf, Tailor Made Tours

For a long time I have had a keen interest in travelling for both the sports opportunities and cultural experience.  I started my career in sports travel, running a golf holiday tour operation and progressed to the more 'extreme' sports.  I have had a interest in board sports for many years - skating, surfing, windsurfing and kiting.  I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to mix my job with my spare time pursuits.  I have extensive knowledge of most of our destinations and look forward to increasing the amount of combination sports and tours we provide. My favourite destinations are Mauritius, Vietnam and Dakhla, Morocco - I have been fortunate to travel to Europe, The Americas, Asia and Africa within my years of working in the travel industry. I have a young family and have travelled with them extensively so can help with this part of trip planning.


Specialty - Windsurf, Kitesurf, Tailor Made Tours

After finishing college at the age of 19 I took a year out and went off to 'explore the world!' to find out what all the fuss was about! I love sports, action and adventure of any kind so it was no surprise to find out that some of my absolute favorite destinations include the India Ocean, South East Asia, South Africa, Australia & New Zealand! I've had the bug ever since and I'm constantly looking to try out a new destinations and experience new things - my next big trip might have to involve Borrocay in the Phillipines, home to some awesome kite surfing and apparantly 3 of the worlds top ten beaches! I think I need to confirm this for myself! Some of the best experiences I've ever had include Cage diving with sharks, bungee jumping off Bloukrans Bridge in South Africa, sailing around the Whitsunday Islands in Oz and recently running the Brighton Marathon (biggest personal achievement!) I started at Planet Travel in 2012 after working in the travel industry for over 10 years and now myday to day job involves sharing my experiences from around the world and creating the most exciting kite surf and windsurf holidays possible for our clients.  I've even got a sea view from my desk. What's not to like?!



  My career in finance management goes back many years and I have a great deal of experience in book keeping and financial control working for a wide variety of companies. I have worked with Planet Travel for almost 10 very happy years and during that time I have watched the company grow from a small 2 staff business to one of the UK’s leading watersport specialists. In my spare time I have a passion for cycling and have toured many countries on 2 wheels including Peru, Israel, Cuba, India, Vietnam and China. Regions on my to do list are South Africa and South Carolina. 


Marketing Manager

Watersports and skiing have a habit of creeping back into my life no matter how hard offices try to capture me. After working in Brazil, Egypt, Greece, Austria and other places I'm sure I have forgotten at the moment, I found myself working in digital marketing until this position arose at Planet Travel. The opportunity to get back into the action sports industry proved too tempting, so I find myself marketing Planet Travel's product to the UK and beyond!
