My Story


I live in Brooklyn, NY, otherwise known as the center of the universe, but I’m happy to go anywhere from Coney Island to Cape Town.  I’ve been traveling since I was a kid and kind of come from a family of nomads.  At any one time, at least three of us are somewhere around the globe.   Managing and producing events within the travel industry has taken me to some incredible places. On so many different levels, travel is the best education. Travel connects us and proves that we’re more alike than we are different.  Everyone around the world strives for the same core things in life–a roof over their head, food on their table, education for their family, and a peaceful life. Throw is some good food and music and then you’re really talking!

I created this blog to kick myself in the butt and to encourage and inspire travel agents–and ambassadors whoever you are–to capture their trip experiences in writing.  I hope you find it helpful.

Happy trails!
