Your Global Savvy Travel Agent

My entire life has centered on the travel. I was born into the travel business, being the son of a renowned airline executive and then retiring from Enterprise after a 35-year career where I led Enterprise’s travel agency sales team. I have been fortunate to travel the globe both for business and pleasure, as a child and an adult. My customers are often well traveled, and we work together to cut through the clutter, seeking value in premium and luxury travel experiences. I help my customers explore small villages and historic sites in intimate settings, allowing for a richer immersion in the destination. I have traveled to 51 different countries including 19 in Europe. I am in the million-miler club for Delta, United and American. Europe is my specialty, whether by river, ocean or over land. In my recent travels, I have discovered river cruising and it has grown to be our favorite way to see Europe.
