My Background

London-based but spending more than half the year exploring new destinations, I am never happier than when waking up in a hotel room with a view.

Having studied Math and Economics at University and then starting my career in finance, in 2009 I decided I needed a change! With a love for dining out and fancy restaurants, I founded London-based luxury travel & concierge service, Bon Vivant.

During the early years, my focus was on scoping out the best restaurants, bars, shops and experiences for clients in London, before the focus shifted to hotels and the luxury travel world.

My two loves are traveling and dining out and I’m ever thankful that my job affords me the chance of doing both on a regular basis.

I now travel the globe sourcing the very best hotels, experiences, restaurants and hidden gems to make my clients' trips extra special.

My favourite destinations are St Barths, The Amalfi Coast the South of France, although my heart belongs to London, a city you can really never tire of.

I travel extensively - in the last year I have visited Mallorca, The Amalfi Coast, Florence and Tuscany, China (Beijing, Hong Kong and Shanghai), New York, LA, Las Vegas, Mykonos, Santorini, Paris, The South of France, Milan, Portugal (Porto, Douro Valley, Lisbon), Madrid and Barbados.

A large part of my work involves seeking out the best and the hottest new openings for clients, so you can be sure that if there’s a new restaurant or hotel opening, I’ll be there to check it out.

I am based in London but can assist clients from all over the world.

As usual, Emyr was superb in arranging our 4 day trip to Corinthia. We have a set of specific requirements for the trip and he dealt with them all brilliantly. Would highly recommend.
