My Profile

It goes without saying that I love to travel since my first journey away from home was at fourteen, and my first foreign trip to England and Scotland was at seventeen. Since then I’ve visited 50 US states and 28 foreign countries and still love to travel!

But more importantly, I love staging interesting travel and outdoor experiences for both Americans and foreigners coming to the USA. I like to tie the past with the present and imagine a future with the landscape, history, familiar film and literature, and a touch of humor to spark client’s imagination of what was and is America today. I use popular music and film soundtracks creating an ambiance of time travel. Culture and landscape combined take clients to imaginative, yet real places.

I connect people with nature and places in ways they’ll remember after the trip is over!.............
