A Traveler's Journey


The journey began following college graduation in California when I lived in Latin America studying Spanish and teaching English as a second language. It was there that my passion for travel and learning about other cultures first blossomed. After certification from the International Tour Management Institute (ITMI) in 1978, I launched my professional tour director career with a passion for sharing the world with others.  

I am often asked about my favorite destinations. That question usually leads to a discussion about New Zealand, East Africa, Switzerland, Turkey, Thailand, Machu Picchu or the Canadian Rockies. I am also taken with emerging destinations I’ve led tours to such as Vietnam, Myanmar, and China (beginning in 1982). It is never a short conversation.

2019 marks a 41-year travel career, leading tour & travel programs to 60 countries on 6 continents and 26 States. I cannot imagine a time when I am not sharing adventures with my fellow travelers. The journey is the destination.

Personal travel includes Belgium, Brazil, Eastern & Western Canada, Canadian Rockies; China, Colombia, England, France, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Macao, Mexico, Thailand, Turkey, 40 USA States including Alaska & Hawaii.
