Meet the team
Introducing the Echo Team! We're a friendly group, and if you're in the area, let us know and you might have a chance to try Sid's famous cooking!
Sid Areamkaew - Director
Sid is the other half of the Areamkaew clan. He is originally from Phichit in Thailand, but has lived in many different places including a few islands. Before joining Echo, he was a beach performer, which involved him playing with and throwing fire. Kerry and Sid live in Bangkok with their sons Arlo and Leon. He loves Thailand because of the availability of food – he can go out and get cooked food easily and cheaply, unlike in Australia! He also loves Thailand’s beaches. His hobbies are (still) playing with fire, spending time with his family and cooking.
Interesting fact: Sid spent a whole year living on a boat, with only a few days on land every 2 weeks.
Nook - Visa and work permit support
Nook is from Bangkok, and has lived here her whole life. She is currently studying towards a Bachelor degree in Logistics, as well as working full time. Working and studying means she doesn't have a lot of free time, but she likes to go shopping and watch movies when she has the chance. She also has two sister, and enjoys spending time with her family.
Nook is very sweet, and is very organised, which helps the visa and work permit process run smoothly.
What she likes most about Thailand is the fact that you can travel to the beaches and mountains so easily and she really enjoys heading north to spend time in Chiang Mai.
Interesting fact: her favourite food is Thai fried rice!
