?Bucket List & Adventure Specialist ?? River, Expedition, Small Ship Cruises ?? Australia ?? Safaris ?? Private Trips ?? Owner, Lush Life Travel ?? "Happiness Actuary" ?? Maximizing Your Return on LIFE ??

The concept I'd like to promote to you as my client is to live a LUSH LIFE. I focus on bucket list, adventure, and luxury travel. I like to inspire people to explore and care about the planet, and I embrace sustainable tourism. I am a proud Virtuoso Adventure & Voyages Community member.

I’ve been doing this 15+ years, but before that I was an actuary for 20 years. I dealt a lot with conventional return on investment (ROI) before, and I deal hourly with RETURN ON LIFE (ROL) now. It’s as if I went from being a true actuary to a happiness actuary! I use all my business experience, training, and attention to detail to ensure your precious vacation time and dollars are invested wisely, and your vacation is done right the first time. Your most precious asset is your time with your family, and I help safeguard that investment of time.

What I love most about my whole role as a travel advisor is BUILDING MEMORIES. Whether it's a Galapagos expedition, a safari through Kenya and Tanzania, walking on the 7th continent after visiting the Falklands and South Georgia, an Italian walking & wine trip, a New Zealand self-drive holiday, a Danube river cruise, a Tahiti cruise, or a 7 bedroom villa in Jamaica ; my focus is always about the experience.

Travel writer Pico Iyer says, "luxury is not about what you have, but what you don't have to worry about." I take away your worries. I deliver exceptional service, and help you maximize your Return on Life by leveraging my 10,000+ hours (a la Malcolm Gladwell) of working in travel, and leveraging relationships I've built with the "best of the best" partners:
