- What did you do for a living before becoming crew? 

I was a project manager/coordinator.

- Why did you become Dragoman crew? 

After couple of Dragoman trips, I noticed that I really like the overlanding lifestyle and decided to apply as a crew. And here I am!

- What's your favourite destination? 

This is hard one. There is a big a variety of destinations, and I feel all of them are unique and have something to offer for everybody. But I think my best memories are from Eastern Africa. The Serengeti and Zanzibar are really worth visiting!

- What has been your favourite or most memorable occasion on the road?

Seeing a lion kill in the Serengeti, on my first Dragoman trip ever.

- What's the most essential item in your backpack? 


- What is your one piece of advice to future overlanders/passengers? 

Wherever you go, be open minded and live in the moment.
