Really good at: Finding the perfect location for each client and ensuring it’s memorable and effective. Always doing the right thing and getting it accomplished quickly and accurately. I also can still out-swim just about everyone.

Known for: Being present personally and professionally. Adventures such as ziplining, surfing, jet skiing, waterskiing, cliff diving, snowmobiling, and snow skiing. In every country and city, I try what the client will experience and I enjoy the process.

Loves: The amazing relationships this business has provided me, which have allowed me to have friends and playmates everywhere I visit. My additional loves are good wine, documentaries and chocolate cupcakes.

Guilty as charged: Finding a Starbucks in every country and city I have ever traveled for over 20 years. I always find a way to give back to every community from soup kitchens to schools.
