Jon Smith is an intrepid traveller who has lived and worked in a dozen countries setting up schools and training local teachers. This has allowed him to gain a deep appreciation of the culture and customs of Asian countries. He enjoys the challenge of competing in Ultra-marathons and has run in the Marathon des Sables three times. One of his future endeavours is to ride around Australia on his push bike.
He is passionate about a number of causes that have been explored in his first publication including mental illness, drug addiction, suppression of freedom and catering to the needs of refugees. During his free time he assists to feed homeless people in Sydney.
