Growing up in Texas, I always looked toward the rest of the world in wonder. Having what I thought was my dream job in finance meant I had little time to explore this curiosity, so after five years of crunching numbers but dreaming of exotic lands, I left my job and set out to explore the world. Eighteen months and 45 countries later, travel became the only thing I thought about. After making my way through Europe, the Middle East, India and Southeast Asia, I set my eyes on Australia and New Zealand. The opposite side of the world captured my attention like nothing before. The vast and changing landscape, the incredible people, the mystique of being a world away from home… finance could never satisfy this new passion. Fortunately, Audley provided the perfect opening for me as a country specialist for Australia and New Zealand. I’ve been fortunate to revisit these beautiful destinations with Audley and confirm my love for these unique destinations.

I'll never forget when…
While visiting Uluru I had the rare opportunity of witnessing storms rolling through the desert while on a sunset tour that was wrapping up at a lookout point. Our group was enjoying champagne as the sun began to set behind the Uluru monolith when lightning began to strike far off in the distance. Rain in the middle of the desert is rare enough but a lightning storm behind one of Australia's most renowned attractions during a vivid sunset is a moment that I will cherish forever.
