I was born in Vietnam to Chinese parents and spent my early childhood in Hong Kong. I am multilingual in Cantonese, Mandarin, Vietnamese, and have some knowledge of French.
When I first arrived in Australia with my family, I was immediately impressed by how different it was here; the blue sky and open spaces, the fresh air and clouds that hung so low I almost thought I could touch them. Above all, it was the friendly people who welcomed us with open arms that impressed me the most. Geography was my favourite subject at school and this lead to my passion for travel. Today, I hold a BA degree in Business Management and a diploma in Travel & Tourism.
I have been in the inbound industry for over 20 years with various roles. One of the highlights was 9 years at Tourism Australia in the PR/ Consumer Marketing department within the Visiting Journalist Program. I am also very proud to have been part of the Sydney Olympic 2000 media promotion campaigns, where I escorted the media to report on the Olympic Torch relay at Uluru.
Not only have I had the great privilege to travel within Australia, I have also travelled the world extensively including most of Europe, Scandinavia, North America, North and South East Asia, Fiji and New Zealand.
During my leisure time, I enjoy going to the Opera, theatre and musicals. I love walking and riding my foldaway bike around the city.
