Alan worked as a freelance travel writer in Africa from the late 1990s. When he saw the African wildlife he fell in love, but when he began to understand the impact of poverty in local communities, he felt compelled to give back. In 2011, he began supporting people in Sri Lanka and Southern Africa through establishing projects that focused mainly on the homeless, disadvantaged children and youth. In 2013, Alan founded Friends 4 Life – the forerunner to RoundTrip Foundation. Alan holds a Masters of International Relations and practices wealth redistribution, giving away large portions of his income to those who need it more. When his head is not deeply buried in RoundTrip matters, Alan works for SafariBookings.com as their Director of Content.
