My Background

I'm from Troy, Ohio originally. I loved my town growing up, but I knew I always wanted to see the world. At age 10, I started writing to the tourism boards of Italy and Switzerland for brochures – then collecting them. My mother was an art teacher/art historian. Our dinner conversations revolved around the Greeks, Egyptians, and the Renaissance. 

I had this worldview, then, long before I actually started in travel. Now I'm blessed to have visited 150 countries, 6/7 continents, and done two trips around the world. 

I can book experiences anywhere, but I tend to specialize in luxury cruises, river boats, tours, Italy, France (and most of Europe), India, and Africa. 

When I travel, I like to get to know the small museums and local transportation; I push that knowledge back to you when you travel. 

My goal is for every client to come back and say "That was the best trip ever!" I hope I can do the same for you.
