My Background

My goal is to offer you a different type of travel advisory taking experiential travel to another level, combining meaningful experiences with conservation, customization & style. As the world reopens, we're here to help distill the noise as your information navigators and compass for the future. Every day we're updated by official sources on health, safety, openings and the evolving world health scene.

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 2021 Top Travel Specialists and Travel+Leisure Magazine's A-List has honored us from 2012, up until present, 2020 as an expert in for Celebration Trips, Hotels & LGBTQ/Gay Travel, Art lovers, Fashion & Family, and 2004 for The A-List All-Stars.

I write for dozens of respected travel publications including AFAR, The BBC, Inc, Man About World, Tatler & Virtuoso Life. I also sat on The Travel Advisory Board of AFAR.

From Asia to Europe, my personal contacts, exclusive relationships and unequalled amenities include an intimate knowledge of the world's newest & best Design Hotels as well as off-the-beaten path LGBT/Gay Travel destinations.

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