For 20 years I worked for large and boutique luxury hotels in San Francisco and I love staying at fine hotels. The best ones present hospitality at its finest and are the basis of a wonderful trip. I know hotels and enjoy pairing clients with the exact one to fit their wishes.

I moved into the travel industry 20 years ago, creating trips that bring my clients' dreams to reality. I have traveled extensively in Japan, New Zealand, India, Canada, most of the U.S. and Europe. But it is visits to sub-Saharan Africa that create my passion for safari.

Whether it be the breathtaking great migration in East Africa; game viewing in the world's largest inland delta in Botswana; the outstanding combination of game viewing, delicious cuisine, unique landscape, and history of South Africa; or tiger trekking in India, the reality of safari is always astounding. I enjoy creating packages that capture the strength of the wild animals while providing human comforts.

Another favorite trek I like to recommend is a visit to Machu Picchu in Peru and the Galapagos Islands - going from the mystery of the high mountain to the sea level islands that are home to species seen nowhere else in the world.

Whatever your desire - from sophisticated cities to the outback of beyond ... from a simple independent voyage to an unforgettable travel package - I work with you to make it so. My experience makes it possible and it would be my pleasure.

Peru is much more than Machu Picchu. A friend told me fascinating stories of growing up in Peru and I have now experienced this great country. Cusco offers incredible archeological sites, beautiful town squares and amazing churches. Lake Titicaca with its communities on the islands of Taquile or Uros, the floating islands, are true marvels.

The Caribbean
A wonderful get away from winter on a magnificent Crystal cruise. The ship was fantastic but the service was the star of the experience.

South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe
The Saxon Hotel in Johannesburg is reason enough for any trip. Off to Zimbabwe for Victoria Falls and game viewing, then Botswana. Tops was staying at King's Pool and having Matt Copham as a safari guide and photographer. Boys playing in an old car (photo) was exceptional.

South Africa
Starting with the stunning Cape Town (Cape Grace Hotel) and visiting the wine country is a perfect way to start an adventure. Afterwards it was off for game viewing and a 'must' visit to Mala Mala in the Kruger area.

The great Migration - East Africa
The greatest 'game show' on earth! The Fairmont Norfolk in Nairobi followed by andBeyond's Bateleur Camp at Kichwa Tembo for the migration. Nothing could possibly top seeing the 1.2 million wildebeest with 200,000 zebra grazing and slowly moving across the savanna.
