Best Travel Advice: Talk to the locals to find the best spots for food and drinks – some of my favorite places over the years have been off the beaten path and not in your travel book. Don’t dismiss a travel opportunity just because its short notice – sometimes the last minute trips are the best ones! Oh, and don’t over pack and include everything you own. Chances are, most of the places the average traveler visits will have plenty of stores that carry what you might have forgotten!

The Reason I Do What I Do: I love getting people to the place they want to go that they have never been. I enjoy exploring that place with them before they leave, and hearing about their trips when they get back. It’s almost as good as getting to go along with my clients. A happy client is the best reward.

As your host agency HQ Staff, I’m responsible for: Apart from assisting with the Digital Marketing and back end tech help, my Australian accent keeps people guessing what I’m saying
Favorite Destination: This is the hardest of all the questions. I have been to so many amazing places around the world but I always fall back on where I grew up. Australia. Sydney is a city everyone should visit at least once in their lifetime and then the coast line is scattered with amazingly quaint beach towns that you just want to stay in and let the rush of the outside world pass you by. My “One Particular Harbor” happens to be a small crop of islands just off the coast of Venezuela named Los Roques. It’s just stunning
Hotels I Wish I Lived in: I’m not much of a diver but the Uepi Island Resort in the Solomon Islands makes you feel like you at the edge of the world. Atlantis in the Bahamas is so much fun as well.
Favorite Vacation Spots: I’ve already mentioned Australia so, I loved Ireland and I think Rome is just amazing.
Destinations I Most Want to Visit: I’ve always wanted to see the Pryamids.
The Next Trips I Have Planned: I promised my son a trip to Yankee Stadium
New Hot Spot: Cuba
What I Cannot Travel Without: Unfortunately, my computer, I’m always working. I wish i could take my golf clubs, rental clubs sometimes suck. Otherwise, I like to travel with an open mind.
Best Travel Advice: Keep your expectations in check so you will be surprised when they are exceeded
Biggest Luxury About Traveling: Not just seeing but understanding that the world, outside our walls can be a very different place.
The Reason I Do What I Do: I’ve been exceptionally lucky to have traveled and experienced what I have. I love airports, it gives you a feeling that a new adventure is about to begin.
My Specialties: Apart from the mundane of Digital Marketing, I bring my years of experience to assist clients planning, what, for me, may be a just another trip but for them, could be the trip of a lifetime.
