Christopher’s overriding philosophy is that life is short and that we need to maximise our experience of it while we can.

A keen story-teller from an early age, Christopher has always had an interest in books. His studies in history and modern languages took him to living in a number of countries and setting up the marketing department for a Russian publishing house in the 1990s. Since this time, he has been involved in a number of international sales and marketing roles.

David is a firm believer in Ansel Adams’ observation that “every experience is a form of exploration”. His curiosity has led him to explore many wild countries in the world and to climb more than a few of its high mountains, including Denali, Aconcagua and Mont Blanc.

David has over 20 years of international business experience, including senior management roles at Apple and The Gap. He has lived and worked in London, San Francisco, Paris and Beijing.
Crux, or the Southern Cross, is the smallest but one of the brightest and most distinctive constellations in the sky, indispensable for centuries as a guiding light to explorers and seafarers.
