About Iain Sharpe
Iain Sharpe’s love of traveling started as a young child when his family moved several times because of his Father’s job. Born in July of 1971 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, to parents Andrew and Glenda Sharpe, Iain and his family soon moved to Holland where his father worked for Shell. Because of Andrew’s job, the family moved to England when Iain was two.
The Sharpe family stayed in England until Iain was eleven years old. Being born to parents who are both English and Scottish, Iain grew up experiencing a traditional English childhood. Glenda was a French Language teacher and so the family spent many summer holidays in France. Iain and his family would move once again because of Andrew’s job, this time to Houston Texas.
Iain Sharpe went to high school in the Houston Metropolitan Area, Klein High School, and graduated from the University of Houston. However, before he would go on to his first entry-level job, Iain decided to take a gap year and explore the world. He backpacked for eight months in Singapore, Australia, and New Zealand.
