Hey Guys! Thanks for taking the time to check out my profile. So the story of Sam and how I got to where I am today.. sitting on the floor of the office writing a biography! I have always had a passion for travel. Since finishing high school in '07 I have always been in the tourism industry. I love showing people a good time but I find the most rewarding thing is bringing that quiet/shy person out of their shell and loving life! I did ThaIntro as a customer last year, because it appealed to me not only value for money but an amazing itinerary. Needless to say I had an EPIC week and made lifelong friends resulting in some serious post holiday blues. It was with no hesitation I wound up my job/life at home and set off to travel SE Asia...hoping a Group Leader position with ThaIntro would come up along the way. With a bit of luck it did, I applied and here I am. I don't take for granted I have a dream job. I am loving the Thai life and showing people what I have a passion for. I love that most of our customers have never been to Thailand or Asia before. It makes the week that little bit more special :) So go on, take a moment or 2 and write me a review saying how awesome my dance moves are or how you are now in toastie rehab because of me! =P xo
