Travel is seeing the world with open eyes and taking something back besides gifts or souvenirs. Learning about new cultures, tasting new foods, delighting the senses, exploring sights and making new friends while creating lasting memories.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Southeast Asia is where I have worked and spent the last eight years working in tourism and hospitality. Having lived, traveled and worked throughout the region I'm very familiar with the countries, cultures, and sights of Southeast Asia. Worked extensively to arrange itineraries in luxury travel, adventure tourism, culinary trips and historical highlights while having visited and checked all suggested destinations myself. "

How did you get involved in travel?

"Started working abroad summers in Latin America. After university graduation took a trip around the world before coming home to work in finance. The 9 to 5 office job couldn't match the excitement abroad so I grabbed the next flight out. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"While traveling through Wadi Rum towards the border of Jordan and Saudi Arabia with a Bedouin tribe we stopped for a holiday feast. A entire goat was dressed then cooked over a roaring fire when done dropped on a giant platter of dates, rice, spices and herbs for all to enjoy. After stuffing ourselves with dinner we sat outside drinking tea and smoking shisha under a full moon which made the rocks of Wadi Rum sparkle with purple, gold, silver and blue colors looking like I imagine Mars would."
