Experiencing the magic and witnessing the sheer beauty of New Zealand should be on everyone's travel dream list. My love for the warm and friendly New Zealanders and this country's spectacular natural beauty keep me coming back. Whether your interests are art, culture, history, and museums, if you're a foodie, or an active adventurer eager to explore all the excitement this "Land of the Long White Cloud" can provide... New Zealand truly offers something for everyone! As a certified 100% Pure New Zealand Tourism "Gold" status specialist, I'm eager to share with you my experiences, explorations and expertise so that you, too, can feel this same excitement.
This "Land Down Under" is my favorite destination! I've been fortunate to visit Australia five times in the last eight years. My most recent visit, with a group of travel professionals, included the Northern Territory and Sydney, where we experienced Darwin, Uluru/Ayers Rock, Alice Springs and the beautiful Kakadu National Park, accompanied by knowledgeable local guides. Other trips have included Cairns, Melbourne, Adelaide and many parts of the Outback. I've especially enjoyed many fascinating and interesting experiences with the Aboriginals, including hiking, painting, and listening to local folklore storytellers.
Whether your dream is swimming with sharks in Bora Bora's turquoise blue lagoons or restoring Moorea's coral reef, it is my passion and pleasure to turn these dreams into reality. I travel regularly and extensively to each of the five archipelagos so can share the most current insider tips and local knowledge with you as you plan your trip.
The Islands of Tahiti are truly magical. The natural beauty of the Islands' lagoons and beaches sustain the soul and challenge the imagination. Hiking and biking in Moorea's rainforest interior, or snorkeling up close with manta rays, tiger sharks, and colorful exotic fish, or high-adrenaline, four wheel jeeping through pineapple fields all provide the experience of a lifetime. This is the dream vacation that awaits you.

My two favorite destinations in the world are in the South Pacific - Tahiti and Fiji. As your advisor, I know both destinations and I can get you there! Let's start with Fiji. Comprised of 333 islands, of which about 1/3 are inhabited, this spectacular destination showcases diversity. I'm very knowledgeable about the different resort properties and what each offers - ranging from two-star properties on the main island, to the most luxurious 5-star resorts a quick helicopter ride away. Besides my long-time experience traveling here and learning about all that this South Pacific destination has to offer, I've established and maintained strong relationships with my local colleagues to ensure I am always up-to-date on accommodations, dining options, attractions, experiences, and events that will make your Fijian getaway an adventure filled with memories to last a lifetime.
Los Angeles, California
To say that my two favorite destinations are far apart geographically and certainly "a world apart" in all that these two exciting and compelling destinations have to offer...is truly an understatement. But once you know what makes each destination so special and enticing... there's no doubt you'll be heading way up north and way "down under" to learn all about Iceland and Australia.

I've grown up traveling. In fact, by the age of 24, I had traveled to, explored and experienced all seven of the world's continents! For the past five years, I have been working full-time as a professional travel advisor (except for one year in 2016 where I had the opportunity to live on Australia's sunny and enticing Gold Coast.) In 2017, as a certified Aussie Specialist, I attended Corroboree West (Australia's premier tourism event held every two years) where I met over 100 of Australia's leading tour operators/special interest companies to learn all about the country's many exciting attractions and activities. Straight from Corroboree West, I joined Tourism Australia for a week-long trip to the remote Outback of Western Australia's Kimberley region - where we explored one of Australia's most striking geological landmarks - the famed, multi-million-year-old tiger-striped mountain range - Bungle Bungles.

My two favorite island destinations in the world are Jamaica, in the Caribbean and Tahiti in French Polynesia/South Pacific. I've explored and experienced these two compelling islands and look forward to sharing all I've learned and all there is to see and do! Together, we'll explore each island and we'll start with Jamaica. I'm familiar with resorts of all price ranges and amenities offered - from budget and mid-priced, to luxury and all-inclusive. I've personally stayed in Montego Bay, Negril, Ocho Rios, and Falmouth, Trewlawny parish. I've explored and enjoyed many natural attractions and enjoyed many an exciting outing - including visits to Dunn River Falls in Ocho Rios, taking the Martha Brae Rafting excursion and watching divers at Rick's Café jump from rocks into the ocean. I want you to be my client for life - not just one trip - and I treat my clients like "family."

My passion for New Zealand and Australia began over two decades ago. My commitment to learn and experience as much as possible about these two compelling destinations is evident in my being recognized as both a New Zealand Gold Kiwi Specialist and as a Premier Aussie Specialist. First, we'll visit Australia together. If shark diving, food tours and wine tastings, an active vacation on the Great Barrier Reef, taking art and history tours, shopping, touring the big cities, learning first-hand about the lifestyle of the Aborigines, viewing magnificent wildlife and spending time in the Outback is piquing your interest...we need to talk! Now, on to New Zealand! From the very first time I stepped foot in this country, I knew this was going to be an enticing, exciting, and diverse destination.

To me, Australia is my second home! I am proud to be certified as an Aussie Specialist, and I look forward to every visit to this great Land Down Under. My wife and I especially enjoy experiencing this magnificent destination on cruises and excursions. On a recent cruise, we customized our shore excursions to include wineries in Southwest and South Australia, Kangaroo Island, the Barossa Valley, Victoria and Sydney. We've also cruised from New Zealand to Western Australia with a special focus on Tasmania, Melbourne and Sydney. Also, we've sailed north from Sydney through the Great Barrier Reef - a mind-boggling experience. I treasure my time getting to know the wonderful people, learning the history and experiencing first-hand the many different species of wildlife - that live nowhere else on earth.

I've been very fortunate to have been in the travel industry for over 25 years. And I'm proud to say that I have two distinct specialties: New Zealand and Traveling with Disabilities. I'm also looking forward to another great 25+ years in this amazing industry where every day you learn something new that can make a positive impact on a client's upcoming trip. First, we'll visit New Zealand - one of these incredible places where you simply cannot take a bad photograph. Each location is followed by another location that seems even more beautiful than the place you just left. Next, my reason is personal for expanding my knowledge and expertise in the travel industry to become an advisor who specializes in Traveling with Disabilities. I have two aging parents with mobility issues and a sister with both physical and mental limitations because of Down Syndrome.

To say I have experienced the best of New Zealand through a variety of fun and enjoyable activities, is an understatement!

Additionally, I was honored to be awarded the 2018 Gold Specialist 100% Pure New Zealand designation, in addition to other industry certifications.

My most recent passion has been planning trips to a different kind of magical destination: Australia.

First of all...Australia is BIG! To say there is so much to see and do here - is an understatement. I've been fortunate to travel here often and explore the more unusual Australian destinations that most people don't know about. By far, my most memorable experience was spending quality time with a First Nations' (recognizing Aboriginal people as the sovereign people of Australia) woman from the beautiful Kakadu National Park region. I was a guest on her native land and heard her stories about marriage customs, her family and food taboos. Essentially, I fell in love with Australia through her life stories, and it's Australia's people who make this destination so special. I want to work with you so that you, too, can share and experience this awesome destination.
