Europe & South Asia Specialist
About me

Travelling and exploring the world has always been my passion, from a young age I travelled extensively throughout the US and Canada – I’m originally a New Yorker.

But despite the pull of the Big Apple, at 16 I visited Belgium on a school band trip and I was instantly hooked on Europe. Since then I’ve explored a great deal more of Europe and added plenty of destinations in popular locales through Central America, Mexico & the Caribbean, but also in more off the beaten path spots in Africa and South Asia.

I love the thrill and excitement of waking up in a new spot to call home for a few days and really explore the little nooks and crannies. Ask me about my top picks for culinary and culture in India, a place which has quickly become a favourite for me. I’ve an extensive business history and an MBA in Global Management which provides me with even more in-depth knowledge of the world without being too biased toward corporate or business travel.  Like the others here on the team, I also count on a wonderfully global network of friends and associates to call on for local recommendations and on the ground expertise.

While I’m on a personal mission to visit as many countries as possible, I do enjoy the art & music scene and would gladly allow those types of itineraries slow me down in my pursuits! I’m here to share my passion for travel and exotic places, I look forward to assisting you or your group on your next vacation and helping you achieve those travel dreams together.
