"I’ll often live week-to-week, even day-to-day, whatever the adventure calls for, so I need that flexibility"
What’s the main reason for finding work here in London?
The main reason I’ve been using GIG has been to stay afloat really, especially while I prepare for my next adventure. My exact movements are on a bit of a week-to-week basis at the moment and the Seeker app has allowed me to find shifts in multiple cities around the UK, which has been great. That ability to earn on the move has been majorly helpful. So, right now I'm in London, have a bit of time and need the money, so I'll work a few shifts around town.
How important has it been to find flexible work?
Being flexible is hugely important. I’ve done lots of seasonal work in Europe for either the summer or winter seasons, which is great, as I can earn heaps for 3 months then go travelling. But especially when I’m transitioning between large jobs or stopping over for 3 or 4 weeks, like I did in Edinburgh, it’s really good to find work whenever I need it.

Where are you off to next?
I have a lot of trips I want to do in the future, however my main aim is to save up enough money to do a big cycle from Alaska to Patagonia. It’ll be a big one but I’m excited. I also plan to do a ski season in Japan as the slopes are notorious!
