EP: What is your background and how did you get into adventure travel?
AA: I fell into adventure travel purely by accident. My first “real” job was at the Philadelphia Zoo, which had a burgeoning travel program introducing its members to wildlife all over the world. In my early 20s, I found myself leading African safaris or traveling anywhere from Borneo to Ecuador scouting out potential destinations with great wildlife conservation projects. I’ve never quite fit the mold of what a stereotypical adventure traveler might be – I was born in the Philippines but grew up in suburban South Jersey. My idea of a hike as a teenager was grudgingly walking to a friend’s house three blocks away if I didn’t get a car ride. And then in college, I did an exchange program in London, eventually backpacked my way through Europe, went back to live and work in London, then started traveling for the zoo – and I never looked back.
