My Background

I was raised by parents who lived in East and West Africa during the 1960's. Surrounded by African artifacts during my childhood I was intrigued when my parents' far-flung friends would visit our home from Kenya, Sudan or Liberia and I promised myself that I would travel to these places one day. After college graduation I began a career in travel. In my 20's I worked as a crew member on a 92-foot boat and sailed along the coast of Alaska through the Panama Canal, up the Amazon River and across the Drake Passage to Antarctica. As an international Travel Director I led groups on cultural, natural history and wildlife viewing tours to over 50 countries and all seven continents. As a result of my many opportunities to safari it is clear that I am entirely bitten by the 'Africa Bug' and have been designing, selling and organizing safari itineraries for two decades resulting in many happy globetrotters.

I specialize in the research and design of your trip while matching the right destination and experience to your preferences. Most importantly I have first-hand and 'insider' knowledge of many of the lodges and all of the safari countries offered by our Virtuoso partners.
