Christopher Merchant, Business and Development Manager
After five years in the culture and tourism industry, I have worked across education, tour management, promotion and online marketing. Before arriving in Battambang, I worked in Taiwan improving Access to Health, Medical Ethics, and Human Rights in medicine. When not cycling, I like to spend my spare time exploring other outdoor activities such as skydiving, sailing and rock climbing. My main goal as Buisness and Development Manager of the Soksabike team is to use tourism as a vehicle for positive development in local communities while making sure every visitor has an enjoyable time experiencing the real Cambodia.
