My Background

"The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page." St. Augustine

When David was a teenager, he didn't have a poster of Farrah Fawcett on his bedroom wall, he had travel posters plastered across them. He always knew he wanted to travel and visit the far reaches of the globe.

After graduating from college with a degree in Hospitality, Travel & Tourism that included two years abroad, one in Oxford, England, and the other at the prestigious École Hôtelière in Lausanne, Switzerland, he pursued a career in Luxury Hotels. Dave's contacts in the industry are numerous and he doesn't hesitate contacting them to enhance his clients' journeys and make them more memorable.

David has been to all 50 States and over 145 countries on all 7 continents. Whether it's cruising a river, ocean or sea or just a new "find" in an iconic city, David listens to his clients and loves sharing tips to orchestrate their perfect trip. He wants their travel experience to positively impact their life.

Birthday Trip

As usual, David crossed all the "t's" and dotted all the "i's" when it came to making our hotel arrangements in Montreal. My Mother and I are always looking for that special (whether historic or an architectural curiosity) hotel and David came through once again. We were upgraded and the appointments at the Hotel Le St. James were wonderful. The staff was attentive and accommodated all of our requests quickly and efficiently. It is just too bad David could not control the weather--but the damp weather and gray skies gave Old Town Montreal the atmosphere it needed.

Score a win for the home team!

Thought I would use a baseball analogy in my review headline as we anticipate opening season tomorrow. As usual, David worked his magic and we were upgraded to a wonderful suite at the Inn at Perry Cabin located in the Chesapeake Bay Area. It was a great choice and we were able to get some much needed r & r. I just wish I knew David years ago when I labored through all the various websites to find just the right choice. He gives you options and all are terrific.

Another Gold Star

Once again, David "hit it out of the park". Our destination was already set-- as was the inn we wanted to stay in for our short get away. Despite doing all our homework we knew David would work his magic. And indeed he did-- after a quick e-mail he was able to make the inn reservation with several upgrades and surprises. He is a whiz at negotiating the very best for his clients!

He did it again!

When will I learn???? I contacted David to secure a suite in a hotel in downtown Asheville. Our plans included spending the day at the Biltmore Estate, gardens and village. David researched the hotel I suggested---even the noise level and did not think this was the "right fit" for our needs. Instead, he booked a beautiful suite (just so happens it was the Wharton suite actually named after one of my favorite authors and a close friend of George Vanderbilt) at the Biltmore Inn. The service was top-notch. Thank you David!!
