My passion for travel is rooted in transformation and discovery – the discovery of new places, people, cultures and activities, which I believe leads to a personal journey of self-discovery and new perspectives. I think there’s something remarkable about the emotions new places create and my goal is to work with my clients to capture those feelings, embrace new adventures, indulge in unique experiences, and inspire them to explore beyond the typical guidebook.
My clients not only get passion, but they get access to someone with the exceptional client service and organizational skills that are gained over a 20 year career managing advertising production and its demanding project management logistics. My obsessive eye for detail required to ensure that a TV shoot runs perfectly is also critical in handling every travel component of my clients’ itineraries.
I have been fortunate to travel extensively and have first-hand experience in hundreds of unique destinations. In addition to living in Spain and Australia - where I was able to fully immerse myself in the local culture - my favorite travel memories include: a helicopter landing at the top of Franz Joseph Glacier in New Zealand; trekking through the Thai jungle to spend the night with a hill-tribe in the mountains of Chiang Mai; enjoying a curated, intimate puerta cerrada (closed-door) dinner in the home of a chef in Buenos Aires; and windsurfing in the charming coastal village of Alacati, Turkey.
Whether your idea of a luxury adventure is a food and wine destination, a beachfront spa getaway, a scenic river cruise or exploring remote jungles, my expertise and my vast network of global travel connections will ensure that each personalized travel experience I design results in unforgettable discoveries and lifelong memories.
