The Team

Tom Spicer - TRUE Adventure Expedition Manager

Tom Spicer

Expedition Manager

Tom left education with an ambition to see as much of the world as possible. His love for travel and adventure has taken him to some incredible locations around the globe. He has most recently spent half a year travelling the America’s, sweating in the Amazon jungle and taking in the spectacular views in the high Andean mountains.

Before he went to university and studied conservation, Tom took not one, but three gap years. During this time, he visited Australia, South East Asia and spent nine months in New Zealand. Each new trip stoking the fire within to travel more. He knows first hand the impact that travel can have on someone, and loves having the opportunity to encourage young people to gain some of the life changing experiences he has had. 

Tom has a real drive to push himself in new ways and is always looking for the next challenge, most recently completing the three peaks challenge, and always looking for the next!
