After graduating with a degree in History, Jack took a year out, to combine travel and work in Thailand, Indochina, Malaysia, Singapore, Bali, Australia, New Zealand and Fiji. After returning to the UK, Jack interspersed working in recruitment and sales and marketing with numerous extended visits to Indochina and Thailand. His enthusiasm for the region led him to Audley in 2006 to share his passion, knowledge and experience of Southeast Asia with our clients.
Since joining Audley he has re-visited Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Malaysia and added Borneo, Indonesia and Burma to his portfolio following numerous extensive trips of the region.
In 2015 Jack moved to our new US office Boston where he is now based. In his free time, Jack enjoys many outdoor activities including skiing, walking, cycling, running and squash. A sociable character, Jack enjoys attending shows and meeting with a wide group of friends.

Sharon and Gary Goodman traveled to Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam for 25 days in February 2017, organized by Jack
We discovered Audley Travel during an internet search of how to travel to Southeast Asia, and felt that Audley’s “tailor made travel” was exactly the right fit for them. And that turned out to be exactly correct! Our specialist, Jack, assisted in planning out a trip that was near perfection. Jack did a wonderful job of planning out the trip so that areas that required more strenuous schedules of sightseeing were nicely interspersed with segments of the trip that were particularly relaxing and refreshing. The guides that Audley arranged were one of the many highlights of the trip. We relished in the fact that most drivers and guides met us at each airport and never disappointed us with a no-show or late arrival. In many cases, we felt we had made a local friend. We would recommend traveling with Audley with no hesitation and, in fact, cannot sing its’ praises loudly enough. During their travels, we met other fellow Audley travelers who also agreed that everything planned by Audley had gone perfectly! We have already been urging all of our friends to travel with Audley on their next trip.
I'll never forget when…
Bako National Park covers 2,742 hectares of a rugged sand stone peninsula to the east of the Bako River near Kuching, the capital of Sarawak. Millions of years of erosion have created an impressive and breathtaking coastline of steep cliffs, rocky headlands and stretches of white, sandy bays. Wave erosion at the base of the cliffs has carved many of the rocks into fantastically shaped sea arches and seastacks.
The coastline is also dotted by a sandstone cliff vegetation characteristic of Bako. Other major vegetation types include the mangrove forest, mixed dipterocarp forest, peat swamp forest, kerangas (heath) forest, and kerangas scrub on the plateau; it's possible to see just about every type of vegetation found on Borneo at Bako National Park.
Well worth a visit even to experience the novel way to enter the park- from the sea.
