Who I am: bona fides.
Lifelong traveler. I was born a German citizen to restless parents and made my first unaccompanied transatlantic flight at age 4. It's been wanderlust ever since.
Ingrained, intense, in love. The sexy curve of a B747. Those downtown Prague scenes in World War Z. That new Jo Malone scent. Everything makes me want to be somewhere. Show me a place and I am there in my head, and on the ground there as soon as I can manage it. Museums. Street food. The inside of a train carriage. That whiff of jet fuel just as you exit the jetway. They all say yes to me.
Serious skills. A family of 37 to Ushuaia. Two weeks of in-depth exploration of historical Greece. Skipping through the Caribbean on a bareboat yacht. With 35 years in the industry, if there's an experience to be had in the world chances are I have arranged it for someone. This makes me your best possible resource as you begin planning your own journey.
Virtuoso: luxury in the pocket. From room upgrades to specialty shore excursions and value-added extras throughout your travels, Virtuoso affiliation benefits allow me to make your journey specific to you, and special.
What I do.
I am your personal shopper, your dreamweaver, your muse. My goal is not to tell you what you want but to listen to what you want and give it to you in a way you did not expect. I wish to introduce you to destinations that will become regions of discovery and will enlarge your experience.
What to do next?
Walk along Hadrian's Wall. Visit BioMuseo, Frank Gehry's newly-opened museum celebrating Panama's biodiversity. Amp up your joy quotient in Bhutan, where prosperity is measured in GNH, Gross National Happiness.
Travel along the paths we choose together, or join one of the special small-group departures I've created for 2015.
Satisfy your curiosity. Nourish your soul. Wherever you see yourself is where you should be next.
