Jesse is the first member of the Cheeky Kea family. Growing up, he spent most of his time surfing and as he grew older, traveling became a part of him. He has been lucky enough to experience New Zealand and all its beauty for years and his aviation background provides insight on tourists necessities and customer service. Jesse is all about the experience. He believes an amazing holiday is not only about the place but the people. A great landscape with a story is a killer combination.

He also cares deeply about sustainability and the environment. He has been lucky enough to travel around and see all the beauty our planet has to offer, but he has also seen the ugly side of tourism. Jesse is conscious of the effect tourism can have on our landscapes, so he does everything he can to minimise the impact on the environment. As a result, Cheeky Kea was created to achieve 2 things. Give tourists what they deserve: The best holiday possible without compromising their wallets or comfort;
