As a dream team, Christine and Jules bring 6+ years of non-profit experience, 5 years as professional content creators and digital influencers, as well as Masters Degrees in International Community Development. They know their stuff!
Chief Creative Officer
Christine is the creative juice behind this team of passionfruits. Having grown up in the Bay Area, California, Christine has been immersed within the non-profit and tech industry from an early age. Her entrepreneurial and creative spirit keeps the fresh ideas flowing, but when she’s not working she enjoys down time with some yoga, a good book and a glass of wine.
Christine developed a passion for non-profit work in college while volunteering with the Boys & Girls Clubs. After working for non-profits in San Francisco she continued her love for giving back with a position in Peru. With a Bachelor of Global Studies from UCSB, Christine recently completed her MPA in International Development from the University of York, England in 2018.
Digital Content Director
Jules comes from the Land Down Under (Vegemite sandwich included). Born in Melbourne, Australia, this former high school teacher turned perpetual traveler has reinvented himself as a digital content creator and non-profit extraordinaire. When he’s not behind a camera or flying a drone he can be found surfing, on a road trip or up to some crazy adventure.
Jules first found his love of non-profit work while spending a year volunteering at a disaster relief organization in Pisco, Peru. With a Bachelor of International Studies, and a Graduate Diploma in Education, Jules recently completed his Master of International and Community Development from Deakin University, Australia in 2018.
Since 2012 Christine and Jules have been an unstoppable force within the travel influencer and international development space. After meeting at a disaster relief organization in Peru in 2012, the pair has continued to build on their love of travel and development work. In 2013, while backpacking Central America, they started Don’t Forget To Move, the number one adventure travel and responsible tourism blog for those looking to make the most of their travels, while also having a positive impact.
Since 2013 they've transformed their blog into a full-time business, having been featured in major publications like The Guardian and Forbes; partnered with large travel brands and destinations on digital campaigns; and hosted their own TV show pilot on the Travel Channel.
In between growing their blog, Christine and Jules have also continued to remain heavily involved in the non-profit sector, working in community development projects in Mexico, Colombia and the Philippines. In 2017 the couple both completed their Masters in International Development, helping enhance their education and knowledge of using real world solutions to address development issues.
Together they combine their passion and expertise of travel, content creation, digital marketing and non-profit work to offer unique and creative solutions to social businesses, corporate social responsibility initiatives, non-profits and all companies looking to give back.
