Travel Content Collective is the brainchild of long-term travellers and professional bloggers Darren and Shelley. With ten years of backpacking behind them, they know a thing or two about travel. Darren and Shelley make the magic happen but it’s their team of remote travel content creatives that make Travel Content Collective a go-to-agency for online travel content. Meet a selection of The Collective below.

Founder & Account Manager

Darren has travelled with Shelley all over this incredible planet. His highlights include hiking to Machu Picchu in Peru, climbing glaciers in New Zealand and living the Pacific island life in Fiji. Darren enjoys sharing his travel experiences and photography through his own successful travel blog where he and Shelley have collaborated with numerous travel brands. From his Project Management background at London creative agencies, running Travel Content Collective and his team of content creatives comes naturally.

Founder & Social Media Guru

Shelleys love for travel instigated the idea to go travelling with Darren 10 years ago. She has lived with Darren in wonderful places such as Australia, Thailand, Bali and of course their hometown of London, but her favourite backpacking destination is Sri Lanka. In just a year, Shelley built a large social media following for their professional travel blog which attracted other brands to want to work with her. But there’s more to Shelley than being the go-to-girl for all things social media, her kind heart has led her to volunteer and work for valuable charities all over the world.

Website Creatives & SEO

Canadians, Philippe Ryan and Nathalie McNabb pursued their current digital nomad careers after 30 years of corporate and marketing agency gigs.
