Frederick is a groups travel manager for Academy Travel, working with clients on their flights, insurance and additional travel. He has a particular focus on working with our tours to Iran, Italy and Japan, as well as our music tours – the latter a personal pleasure, as Frederick is a great lover of opera. In the last ten years he has gained extensive experience in the travel industry, studying for his diploma in tourism and managing the Escape Travel store on Broadway, Sydney. Born and raised in South Africa, Fred speaks Afrikaans, Dutch and Tswana, and at last count had visited 101 countries over five continents! He originally pursued a degree in agriculture and horticulture, and still enjoys spending his spare time on conservation projects. He also draws and paints in acrylic.
