Travel can be many things to different people -- sightseeing, family gatherings, history, culture, and so much more.  But for everyone, travel is experiential -- new tastes, new cultures, new desires and going deeper into areas previously traveled.

Whether it be on a luxury cruise, a private or group tour, or a hike in the mountains my goal is to uncover and understand your travel desires and arrange the most effective experiences and methods to maximize your positive memories.

I have been blessed to travel quite extensively -- more than some but not as much as others.  Africa and Israel were life changing.  Europe, especially France, Italy and Greece, has been remarkable in displaying history and culture.  From China to Tahiti to Africa, I have seen a very diverse world.  I have experienced Alaska in the winter, Hawaii at almost anytime, and the uniqueness of other US states, local in-country travel can be as inspiring as traveling internationally. 

When working with clients, I utilize my experiences to design itineraries and memories that fulfill your dreams and expectations within your time frame and budget.

I highly recommend the river cruise experience of small ship cruising which takes you to the doorstep of many communities -- rivers in France, Germany, Portugal, Asia and the US. 

Let me work for you and with you to make your dreams become reality.
