Since my youth I have been traveling the globe, enjoying and learning of the vast riches out there; the people, the geography, the beauty of this world. I have turned my passion into my career, working in the travel and hospitality industry my entire life in many enjoyable roles. As an International Tour Director for many years I have escorted fellow travelers to most of the continents, working hard to ensure others enjoy the grandeur of the world, eagerly sharing my passion and knowledge with other travel enthusiasts. I have worked for top tour operators, arranging, operating and selling all kinds of tour programs ranging from relaxing tropical getaways and cruises, to adventure programs for National Geographic, to ultra-luxury private jet trips circumnavigating the globe in 5 star luxury (that’s me in the photo, scouting out the Nabataean ruins in Petra, Jordan just prior to the arrival of a private jet tour group).
I have been a Concierge and Concierge Manager in the world-class cities of Chicago and Las Vegas, as well as in the idyllic White Mountains of New Hampshire. I have been in charge of customer service staff coast to coast for a world renown tour operator, sold cruises for one of the world’s largest cruise only agency, and rounding out my experience, as a Corporate Concierge assisting high level credit card holders with their travel arrangements. My never-ending quest for travel, adventure and sharing with others has taken me to my latest and greatest role, as an independent travel agency owner of GO Enterprises.
Here I can use all of my experiences and knowledge to assist anyone in enjoying this world just as I have, truly the culmination of my travel and hospitality career!
Our travel tips and guidance from first-hand knowledge will truly assist greatly in your complete enjoyment of your vacation!
