About Jonathan

I have two children and wonderful wife! I was fortunate enough to start my travels from a young age with regular trips to various places all over the UK and Western Europe. I expanded my horizons during my 20's travelling extensively in Europe, Asia, and the US as well as spending time living and working in both the USA and China.

I am originally from England and have been living in Australia for the past 8 years. My passion is travel and I love cooking fine foods and drinking fine wines from all over the world (now you all know what presents to send).

Since working under the MTA – Mobile Travel Agents banner it has allowed me to focus on what I am good at which is providing an amazing service. I am proud of the fact that my new clients so far have all been referred by existing customers speaking volumes (I hope) of the trust and faith that my happy customers have in me. I love to offer advice and make use of the vast resources available to me to provide a jam packed itinerary encompassing culture, history and pure fun, leaving you with lasting memories!

I am happy to help with any itinerary - for individuals to groups of any kind from leisure to business. I particularly enjoy the corporate side of my business and am able to provide an excellent, fast, efficient and highly competitive service. If you have a business with international travel needs, give me an opportunity to show you what I can do. I love the challenge of researching new and interesting places that are off the beaten track and tailor-making amazing holidays through tried and tested travel partners, including the very best travel operators in the world. As a Virtuoso Member MTA is able to provide unrivalled contacts, deals and adventures to make your trip all the more special. I am always looking for new ways to improve the service I offer and I hope this website and the special offers which are carefully handpicked will help you find you next fantastic trip.

Previous experience

Before arriving in Australia I travelled extensively to many countries, on and off the beaten track staying in everything from Backpackers to 5 star hotels and experiencing all sorts of travel.

I have a passion for travel and wanted to have the opportunity to showcase the amazing places and cultures all over our wonderful world. After arriving in Australia I joined Trailfinders where I worked for 5 years. A great grounding in travel, Trailfinders was renowned for it's well trained, well travelled staff and provided an excellent place to learn about the industry, the different products on offer and to meet and get to know some of you - my long term clients and friends.

I gained a good knowledge of corporate travel and now pride myself on a high level of service, using the fantastic resources at my fingertips, to ensure that your travel whether for business or pleasure, runs smoothly, and is as enjoyable as possible.

Areas of specialty

Corporate travel, group bookings.
