My Background

I have been in the travel industry for 35 years and sold every type of travel, from corporate, production, groups, and very special trips tailored to the clients interest. Multi- generation travel and cruises are now a large part of my business. I have planned some wonderful destination weddings.

I have been fortunate to have travelled Asia, Africa, India, Europe, some Middle East, key travel destination in the US. My strength is matching the best product for the individual client.

After being in the industry for so many years and serving on many Travel Boards, my contacts are valuable and I am able to take special care of my clients.
