My Background

If you are interested in traveling to Japan, Singapore or elsewhere in the Asia-Pacific region, I would love to help you plan your trip. I am uniquely knowledgeable about these parts of the world -- but from a westerner’s perspective -- because I spent a decade of my adult life living, working, and traveling there. In particular, Japan, Singapore and Hong Kong are like second homes to me. I can help you choose the right tour company, plan an independent trip or combine the two. I will make sure you have the opportunity to not only visit the most famous sites, but also the ramen or sushi shop that the locals adore but tourists often miss.

I also know the Asia Pacific region beyond the main cities, having spent more long-weekends than I can count exploring it. Looking for an island spa in Thailand? Art galleries in Vietnam? Vineyards in New Zealand? Let me help. I truly love this part of the world and, as such, planning travel here and helping others enjoy these cultures is a joy for me. Asia can seem daunting, but with the right guidance it can be a wonderful, memorable destination for singles, couples, families with kids and even multi-generational groups.

My professional philosophy is to recognize that the purpose of each traveler and each vacation is unique. My job isn’t to direct you down a pre-determined path, but instead to help you identify and achieve your own goals for your own journey. If your journey is leading you to Asia, I’d love to help you on your way.
