- Program Manager - Thailand
Jeff's love of travel and passion for the environment led him to the volunteer sector, when he
first signed up to volunteer in Thailand in 2005.
After completing a BASc in Environmental Engineering from University of Waterloo, Canada
soon started on a new career path seeking out work that could directly impact environmental conservation.
Since signing up as a volunteer in Thailand, he
never really left.
Jeff spent 5 years setting up volunteer projects focusing on elephant conservation before joining the GVI team in Jan 2010.
Southeast Asian culture and its many groups of indigenous communities continue to hold Jeff's interest and he
looks forward to a long and prosperous future working on GVI programs.
