Phoenix, Arizona

my background

I am a destination and cruise specialist, with having visited over 60 countries, and cruised on nearly every cruise line.

Originally from London, United Kingdom, I now reside in beautiful Phoenix Arizona, and have called America my home for the past 20 years, proudly becoming a US citizen in January 2006. . I constantly strive to improve my relationships with my suppliers and industry partners, therefore offering my clients first-hand knowledge of an incredible and a vast array of travel experience.

I love what I do with a passion, and could not think of any other path that I would have followed. Having worked in the cruise industry for many years for some of the world’s best cruise lines, I have an insider’s knowledge of how the cruise industry works, and that relates in how I relate with managing my clients expectations.

In 2019 I was nominated by Virtuoso for the most admired travel advisor in the USA, along with the most innovative cruise advisor in cruise sales, of which I was fortunate to have won.

People often ask me where I see myself in the next 5 – 10 years, and I tell them, exactly where I am today, doing what I care about with a passion!
