Tom Johnson-Sabine

Product and Marketing

Tom holds a degree in Art History and worked in marketing roles across the publishing, events and sport industries before joining us in 2012. By then he had also gained plenty of travel experience, including on an 8-month trip across North and South America, some of the highlights of which were surfing in the tranquil Peruvian town of Huanchaco, cycling between the wineries of Mendoza, and a 6-day solo hike in Patagonia. 

Tom's interests have a similarly active theme: he is a keen runner, having completed 2011’s London Marathon, and loves snowboarding (although he had to make do with sandboarding in South America!). He also enjoys recreating the flavours of his travels whenever he can, whether sampling London's newest South American restaurant or serving up refreshing Pisco Sours for his friends.

My favourite place in Latin America

I loved Baños in central Ecuador. Its natural thermal baths heated by nearby Tungurahua volcano are the perfect way to relax after a day’s adventuring. There are loads of outdoor activities available here like kayaking and white water rafting and there’s also a really special monkey sanctuary on the edge of the rainforest.
