Hello! Meet Greg

I'm the other half of the team, along with Sam, that is here to make this the best volunteering experience in the world.

A born, bred and proud Kiwi I have visited over 50 countries in a long and varied career that has seen me based in Australia for a number of years. In that time I've worked everywhere from Service Stations to Casinos to Theme Parks.

A couple of years ago I wanted to send my life in a new direction so I quit my job and spent almost a year travelling the world and volunteering on GVI projects. I enjoyed my time on the project in Laos so much that when the opportunity to come here as a member of staff arose I jumped at it without hesitation. Having originally come to the project with no teaching experience I am in a position to understand exactly how others may be feeling and to put any fears to rest.
