Specialties: Personalized trips featuring high adventure, culinary (including distillery, winery, and brewery) enjoyment, festivals, music, and off the beaten path experiences.

Personal Travel highlight of a recent trip: Running into some friends we had not seen in years. Unbeknownst to us they were travelling to the same destination at the same time. Later, we discovered a full moon celebration event on the beach, which ended with fireworks over the ocean.
Favorite thing I try to do when I travel: Absorbing the essence of what it means to be from a particular area by going to where the locals go and tasting what the locals taste. At the end of every day – a moment of relaxation and reflection to soak in what the day has provided, accompanied by delicious food, hilarious company, and amazing cocktails.
Best Travel Advice: Travel internationally at least every other year and be sure to learn your destination’s language essentials. This gesture of appreciation can be a springboard into unknown gems, special experiences, and incredible hospitality from the locals.
Best Client Rescue: Finding refuge for clients cruising their yacht in the Atlantic after their planned itinerary was disrupted by surprise weather. I found them an amazing marina with fantastic amenities plus dining within walking distance. They reveled in this pleasant surprise and it turned out to be a highlight of their journey.
Favorite Destination: So far, two places which offer very different takes on the same theme - incredible rock climbing, inspiring culture, and amazing cuisine – which are southern Thailand’s Railay peninsula and every portion of France.
Dream Trip: Rock climbing, mountain biking, hiking, or other adrenaline adventure in a world-class destination by day. Later, soaking in natural hot springs, dining on delicious local fare and libations before dancing into the wee hours. Then retiring to our well-appointed quarters with an amazingly comfortable bed… Repeat.
Bucket List to do’s: For starters - visit the wonders of the world, running of the bulls (probably watching) in Pamplona, space, hang gliding Rio, rock climbing Ceuse and Kalymnos, deep water soloing in Mallorca, Dalmatian Coast cruising, color festival in India, Formula 1 in Monte Carlo, Tour de France mountain stage finish in the Alps, FIFA World Cup and UEFA Finale, and rafting the Grand Canyon!
