What is the most enjoyable part of your job?

Definitely knowing that I've helped someone tick off a bucket list item. 
It's also great to work with some of Melbourne's and the Yarra Valley's best tours, experiences and accommodation providers. Seeing the local tourism industry's growth and success is really rewarding and inspiring.

Describe yourself in three words
Dedicated, inquisitive & optimistic.

What was your worst ever job?

I'm lucky enough to have loved all the jobs I've had, but helping nauseous clients (as a scuba guide) recover from sea sickness on a boat was never something to look forward to.

If you weren't doing this job, what would you be?
Working in destination marketing to promote regions close to my heart.

How many times have you been ballooning?

In which locations have you flown over?
The Maasai Mara in Kenya, the Yarra Valley and over the beautiful City of Melbourne.

If you could choose one place in the world to fly over in a hot air balloon where would it be?
Victoria Falls in Zambia, or Cappadocia in Turkey

Peter's background

Originally from Kenya, I came to Australia to develop my knowledge of the tourism industry by studying a Master of International Sustainable Tourism Management.

Having worked with market leaders in my previous roles, I am proud and blessed to be part of the Global team, who are not only the best in the business, but also have an incredible company culture made possible by an amazing team.
