As tour escort in South America for most of my life, that grew to a specialty in all things Latin American
I decided to move to Peru where I was married into a huge Peruvian family and lived in Lima for 10 years.
I moved back to the states in 1975 and started my agency in Atlanta (Explorations) in 1978 with the express purpose to sell "Mi Peru".
In 2005 I sold Explorations and moved to Florida where I now operate my adventure travel business consulting on trips to all continents.
I write several monthly travel columns (Our Town Monthly Magazines ) that can be read both on line and in print and I post regularly to my travel blog.
Over the years, Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast as well as the Washington Post have touted me for my knowledge of the good eats and wines of South America. I have also been a member of the Saveur Magazine Travel Advisory Board for 5 years.
