Bespoke Service, Authentic Experiences

My mission is to ensure that each trip I plan is uniquely memorable and expertly executed. I understand that time and money are your most precious possessions and I want to help you use both as wisely as possible.

Before becoming a travel advisor, I worked in luxury hotel sales and operations and earned an advanced degree in hospitality and tourism from NYU's Jonathan M. Tisch Center of Hospitality. My decision to become a travel advisor was borne out of frustration with the status quo in the travel industry. As a young professional, I saw the travel agency industry as ripe for innovation. A proliferation of booking channels was creating a commoditization of luxury travel experiences, with an emphasis on volume.

I saw a niche for myself as a different kind of travel advisor—one who goes above and beyond to provide bespoke service.

I’m available to my clients 24/7. You will never find an out-of-office response from me unless I’m flying and there is no Wi-Fi. I’ve answered emails from the wilds of East Africa and love that I can work from anywhere as I continually travel and network to stay abreast of the latest trends and destinations. In fact, I have been quoted in Forbes and other publications and was named one of the top “30 Under 30 (years old)” travel advisors by Travel Agent Central.

Understanding the hotel side of travel allows me to approach hoteliers and tour operators differently. When I request something for you, I do so understanding what they can and cannot do. That has enabled me to cultivate strong relationships in the industry. As my long-term partners, they are more eager to go the extra mile for my clients.

With my wide-ranging experience and contacts, attention to detail, and commitment to exceeding my clients’ expectations, I am able to craft one-of-a-kind journeys filled with dream-fulfilling, authentic experiences. My goal is not to sell cookie-cutter products; instead, by taking the time to understand your evolving goals and travel style, I hope to add value to your life. More than anything, I would like to earn your trust and become your personal travel advisor, planning everything from exotic adventures and indulgent retreats to your honeymoon, babymoon, family getaways, and multi-generational journeys.
