Beverly Hills, California Travel Agent
Privileged Access to Bespoke Experiences
We specialize in providing attentive personal care and creatively bespoke premium travel experiences with unique experiential elements for individuals, celebrities, and groups. I was born in Malawi and have lived and worked on almost every continent, cultivating exclusive networks, contacts, and relationships. This enables me to offer access to the most exquisite of life's journeys.
After growing up in Central Africa, I studied hotel management in England. I then worked at a series of luxury hotels, including a 5-star hotel in Paphos Cyprus and a 36-room 5-star boutique British Manor House. I moved to the United States and worked at the beautiful 19 bedroom 5-star Wheatleigh Hotel in New England – a Leading Hotel of the World.
Seeking more intimate and ongoing customer relationships, I helped lead a global membership concierge/lifestyle management company in its expansion and growth in the United States, first based in New York City, and then managing their Los Angeles office. About 90 percent of the concierge needs were travel related.
After seven years, I wanted to offer a more boutique and intimate level of dream planning and partnered with the Life:Styled Group to deliver on these passions. We are a boutique concierge agency, and as Independent Travel Advisors of Protravel International, the top-producing agency member of Virtuoso, our group is also able to tap into Protravel’s immense buying power, influence and carefully-vetted provider network to provide value-added amenities, upgrades, and other benefits.
I LOVE to travel and to share my experiences. I live vicariously through trips that I book for my clients and friends. Every trip is unique and personal, and there is much more out there than most people realize. So whether you are looking for a weekend getaway or a once in a lifetime journey, I would love to help.
