  • Profile description
  • Hi, my names Harris! I'm 32 years old and from a place called West Bromwich, not too far from Birmingham, England, UK.

    I can be laid back but generally I'm a fairly driven and switched on individual. It's a bit of a cliche but I love meeting new people, visiting new places and learning about other cultures.

    I've spent most my life working in Customer Service, Management or Sales/Marketing in some shape or form but also have skills in photography and social media and have worked in a couple of manual roles previously such as installing air conditioning. In addition to this I also volunteer at a shelter, during the Christmas period, helping the homeless and vulnerable. I hope to carry out more volunteer work on a more regular basis, during my time traveling South East Asia. I have a strong love for animals and strongly believe that we should help those less fortunate than ourselves - we all need help at some point in our lives, whatever that may be!

    In addition to the above, I have a love for photography, social media, football and travel.

    I would love to hear about any volunteer opportunities you may have, especially if they evolve around animals or those less fortunate than myself.

    If you have an opportunity that you think would be a good fit but is in a country not yet on my travel list but within South East Asia, please let me know as I'm willing to make plans around opportunities.
