I am a native of San Antonio Texas. I have degrees in history and business. After studying I took a different direction and made traveling a priority. I’ve lived across the United States from Miami as well as the Florida Keys, Virginia, New Jersey/New York City, Southern California and San Francisco working in the Hospitality industry. I have also been an instructor of English in Korea and China.
Having spent close to three years in Asia living and traveling, as well as multiple study abroad trips in Europe and South America, I have been fortunate to have some truly memorable travel experiences. These experiences and love for travel go hand in hand with my current role as a travel advisor. In the past most of my traveling was independent and on a budget. This caused me to rely on a smile, maps, and a little luck. Traveling overland on trains and local buses and getting lost in cities searching for sights instead of taking a taxi is where I have gained most of my knowledge about a destination’s terrain, culture, and people. These back roads and back alleys have led me on some great adventures and paid huge dividends as I have helped many of my friends and family map out trips. I can assist you with a multitude of questions not limited to just where you will stay and how you will get there.
With this foundation and the legwork I have put in, I will be able to help you plan a fantastic trip seeing some sites you might otherwise not consider while still maintaining the comfort and standards you desire. From taking multiple trips to a destination like Angkor Wat in Cambodia, I would also recommend taking a side trip to the little know ruins of Beng Mele. From visiting remote villages in eastern Myanmar, I would suggest possibly taking an alternative route to Inle Lake by starting in Kalaw for a three-day trek. A city like Jodhpur in Rajasthan India is a fantastic destination, but from my own experience I would possibly suggest a camel safari to the truly magical fort city of Jaisalmer.
