The power of human connection is more vital than ever when we travel today.

As borders start to re-open, we begin to travel once more -- sometimes as a necessity, other times for a break, and yes -- even to celebrate and get away.

We make your journey as safe and seamless as possible by curating exclusive, private, close-in or remote options for you, drivable from home, or reachable by air or private jet. By keeping abreast of official sources on health, safety, openings, closings and the evolving world health scene, we help you make smart travel decisions, and we're here to support every step of the way.

Luxury means different things to different people, but not always a high price tag but if that's luxury to you, I can pull out all the stops.

Conde Nast Traveler just awarded us to their 2022 Top Travel Specialists and Travel+Leisure Magazine's 2022 A-List as well, who have honored us the last 11 years in a row, as an expert in for Celebration Trips, Hotels & LGBTQ/Gay Travel, Art lovers, Fashion & Family, and 2004 for The A-List All-Stars.

Our hand-crafted journeys have been featured in Conde Nast Traveller, Travel+Leisure, Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, AFAR, The BBC, Inc, Man About World, Tatler & Virtuoso Life. I also sat on The Travel Advisory Board of AFAR.

From Asia to Europe, our personal contacts, on-the-ground relationships and extra amenities compliment an intimate knowledge of the world's newest & bes Hotels as well as off-the-beaten path LGBTQ+/Gay Travel destinations.

I look forward to collaborating with you to creatively craft your next global exploration, celebration or far flung adventure.
