Behind Epic Gap Year is a team of intrepid travellers, designers, photographers and general nomadic creatives who have all pulled together their love for life on the road, drive for customer service and business knowledge to personally bring you all the experiences we offer.
You won’t find us in suits and ties and the only board meetings we have is paddling out back for some waves! So we thought we would put some names to some faces you’ll be chatting with throughout your Epic Gap Year Experience…
CHRIS – Founder & Digital Nomad
Chris has been on the road since 2009, covering over 25+ countries and heaps of adventures. A surfer, photographer, freediver and traveller, he’s also the guy behind travel blog BackpackerBanter.com
JOSH – Graphic Designer
Currently surfing and living in Australia, our Typography obsessed Designer is always helping tweak the site, build our info packs and making sure everything looks nice whilst working properly!
GIJS – Logistics Manager
With a degree in Tourism Management, our bearded Dutchman keeps things running smoothly with his love of spreadsheets and admin! When he’s not busy working, you’ll find him in the waves or under a kite.
ALAN – Legend/Brand Ambassador
This dread headed fellow from the UK is one of the most awesome people you’ll ever meet on the road so we’re stoked to have him on board as a brand ambassador. If you ever cross paths make sure you go say hi!
STEPHEN – Travel Guru
Stephen saved over $27,000 in 2 years, left the US and has been on the road ever since, so it’s safe to say he knows how to get you where you want to be! A diving convert, he also blogs over at A Backpackers Tale.
