My life and career choices have been shaped by my curiosity about other cultures, and I love to see that spark of interest in my clients. I view the arts (followed closely by food) as central to how a society expresses itself. These perspectives inform my travel planning paradigm. Every country offers multiple aspects of itself - ancient & contemporary, tangible & intangible, natural and man-made - that I help my clients discover.

To me, travel at its best - beyond experiencing adventure in beautiful, iconic sites - imparts meaningful connections with a community, an understanding of culture and heritage of a place and of the local peoples’ stories. Travel is undeniably a force for good, for empathy and understanding. I intend that my clients’ trips be purposefully additive experiences for both them AND their destinations: I seek to make every journey matter.

A former banker and international non-profit professional, I'm a collaborative consultant at my core. I’ve seen six continents; sent clients to all seven; and my heart remains tied to my adopted 2nd home of Australia, where I spent 10 formative years, obtained dual citizenship, and forged lifelong connections. Oceania & Asia are regions I know well and love, but my global bucket list is both endless and ever-changing. Isn't yours?

People don't take trips. . . trips take people. - John Steinbeck
