Meet the team
We're roamad, a team of creative and innovative individuals passionate about travel and exploration. We aim to unite the global campervan and motorhome community with an all-in-one tool designed and developed by people within the community.
Disclaimer: We're all a bit whacky.
Founder & Chief Executive Officer
"At 22, my passion for travel ignited during a 13-country journey, including Australia, where I acquired a campervan. After a three-month tour, I was determined to convert my own van.
In May 2021, I moved into my self-converted Mercedes Sprinter, a pivotal moment that gave rise to roamad. Building on my experience with other apps, roamad offers innovative features.
Now residing on a narrowboat, my wanderlust persists. Follow my journey @julianandheidi on socials."
Nationality: British Visited: 39 Countries (watchout Sven) Preferred mode of travel: Campervan (although I want to learn sail) Favourite 3 countries: Fiji, New Zealand, Iceland Life goal: To keep adding more countries to my visited list.
Co-Founder & Chief Operating Officer
"I always remembered to follow my real passion: travelling the world. I have not only studied, interned, and worked in various countries but also travelled my fair share of the globe, either by myself or in a company. When I travel, I like to delve into the culture instead of lying on a beach. One of those trips (South Korea), I met Julian, with whom I never lost touch throughout the following years.
I received my doctorate as an Attending Radiologist and have hosted academic lectures and managed research groups internationally. The valuable knowledge, experience and skills I've gained as a leader and coach are an excellent fit for my role as the COO."
Nationality: German Visited: 43 Preferred mode of travel: Plane (closest thing to time travel in our time) Favourite 3 countries: Laos, Guatemala, Patagonia (technically a region, not a country) Life goal: Never forgetting to live
Co-Founder & Chief Financial Officer
"I grew up internationally, spending my youth in South America and the Middle East. I made that sound super vague, so it sounds more interesting than it actually was. I spent most of my early years travelling with my mother, who was an avid traveller. This did mean, unfortunately, I didn't get many toys. By the time I was 18, I had visited six continents. Sadly, I still didn't have a PlayStation.
Okay, now I've got the awkward travel credentials out of the way to certify I have travelled. I have experience in angel investing and assisting startups, and I have done this over the last five years. Julian and I have worked on other projects in the past, and when he came to me with roamad, I knew he was on to a winning product."
Nationality: British / French Visited: 28 Countries Preferred mode of travel: Train (Because Sven already chose a plane) Favourite 3 countries: US (Hawaii), Sri Lanka, New Zealand (I was there before Julian so I get dibs). Life goal: Eat all of Callans home grown food.
Chief Technology Officer
"I love being outdoors, I think it is the secret to living a long, healthy happy life.
I pursue sports based around this philosophy mainly skiing, surfing and climbing.
Converting and moving into my van was a no brainer enabling me to spend more time in remote locations.
I learned about roamad and realised the potential of the app. I knew that I could provide my expertise to help a community I'm passionate about."
Nationality: British Visited: 24 Countries Preferred mode of travel: Motorbike Favourite 3 countries: Spain, China, Italy Life goal: Grow all my own food and animals on a small holding
"At 20, I embarked on a coding journey, forging a path in mobile app development. 📱💻 My passion for tackling programming challenges drove me to transform ideas into user-friendly apps.
From my first line of code to my latest project, I've explored the evolving tech landscape. 🚀 Just as I once roamed two countries during travels, I now navigate the digital realm, crafting innovative solutions.
In March 2023, I joined a transformative journey sparked by a message and a keyboard. 🌟
Join me on this mobile app development adventure! Follow my coding escapades @flying.teeer on Insta. Let's shape the future, one app at a time. 💡"
Nationality: Pakistani Visited: 2 Countries Preferred mode of travel: Car Favourite 3 countries: Iceland, Australia, Phillippines Life goal: To keep solving programming challenges and creating innovative mobile apps.
