I love Colombia. I love the planet. I love what I do.

I've traveled Colombia in search of authentic experiences which meet global standards for quality service, ecological stewardship, and social responsibility.

I collaborate with local partners and conservation organizations to preserve Colombia's vast biodiversity, rich cultural heritage, and local economies.

Let me create the perfect travel experience for you, with the highest level of detail and service from start to finish.

How did you get involved in travel?

"My wife and I decided after our wedding that we wanted to change our lifestyle and try something new.

We knew we wanted to live out in the country and be as auto-sustainable as possible.

We also wanted to have great weather year round.

We had the opportunity to travel to Colombia for 3 months and we saw a great opportunity to offer Ecotourism services to foreigners. This was back in 2010.

9 months later, we sold everything in Portland, Oregon and moved to the Coffee Region and have loved every minute of it."
