After studying Geography and Mountain Leadership at university Si underwent the rather challenging task of searching for a job that would enable him to travel the world. Consequently, his first venture into the travel industry involved leading groups of school children on overseas expeditions to every continent bar Antartica. Concurrently he worked as a television fixer for two adventure travel television programmes in the UK.
After two fantastic years of travelling the globe Si moved into a planning role, crafting the same trips that he had previously gone on. Within this role however, his travels continued as he led new journeys into North Africa, Southeast Asia and Latin America.
Five years later, the world of luxury tailor-made travel beckoned and Si started as an Australasia & North America Manager for a leading bespoke tour operator in the UK. In 2016 he made the move to Lightfoot Travel, heading up the team of Australasia specialists and also managing Lightfoot Travel’s sales support team.
