Interests & Specialties
I am descended from a long line of adventurers and aviation pioneers, so going to the farthest corners of the world is almost an inherited trait, and something I have indulged in for the past 43 years on a professional basis.  I have been fortunate in developing many long lasting relationships with the wonderful people who define the travel industry around the globe, and am proud to call them friends. We know the hotel managers, chefs, guides, cruise line executives and entrepreneurs who provide special interest adventures and open doors for our clients. Putting together small, intimate specialty group trips that utilize these contacts and introduces travelers to the marvelous people who are passionate about their countries and want to share their culture with our clients, is what I do best. True travelers are aware that a trip is not a commodity, but a life enhancing experience and adventure. Over the years I have learned who/what companies to choose to offer our clients the very best experiences and value, as we recognize that travelers’ time is precious. We at Landmark Travel Ltd. are in the “happiness” business, and we do our utmost to provide that with integrity.

Expert Bio

My life in travel began at the age of 10 when my parents sent me off to begin the first of many trips to spend summer vacations with my grandparents on the island of Kauai in the Hawaiian Islands.  In my college years, I was offered a position as a flight attendant with Saturn Airways flying commercial and military charter flights to Vietnam & Japan. Following completion of my BA degree in Geography/Transportation, I secured a sales position with Olympic Airways, the Greek national airline, then owned by Aristotle Onassis.  My employment with Olympic Airways gave me the opportunity to travel to Greece and cruise her islands as well as meet such people as Jackie Kennedy Onassis and hosting Christina Onassis during her short visit to San Francisco.  Later, I secured a sales position with Air France/UTA which began my 25 year career with the company. This provided me the opportunity to travel extensively throughout the world: traveling to all the continents from the Artic to Cape of Good Hope, Zanzibar to Tasmania, Uzbekistan to Cape Horne traveling and cruising many of the oceans and seas including many trips and cruises through French Polynesia and the fun opportunity of renting Marlon Brando’s over-water house for three weeks on my favorite island of Bora Bora. Two of my many highlights with Air France were the chartering, coordinating and escorting the Concorde aircraft on two separate occasions from Sacramento to Paris & Reno to Paris.

In 1993, after retiring from Air France, I joined Landmark Travel to open and develop the Cruise Division. Upon completing a certification program with Virtuoso as Virtuoso Voyager Club host, I hosted both clients & guests numerous times aboard cruise lines as Silversea, Radisson, Windstar & Cunard, to destinations such as Southeast Asia, Panama Canal, Baltic, South America, East Africa and Tahiti as well as the world cruise aboard the QE2.  Recently, I had the pleasure of hosting guests aboard the new Queen Mary 2 on her 18 day Presidential Inaugural return cruise to Southampton via Barbados, West Africa, the Canary Islands, Madeira and Lisbon.

In 2002, after traveling through and cruising the waters of Scotland over the years, I completed an extensive course sponsored by the University of Strathclyde and the Scottish Tourist Board where I received a diploma, in Glasgow, as a Scotsmaster Destination Specialist.

As Cruise Division Manager for Landmark Travel, I would be happy to assist you in arranging your personal cruise experience as well as invite you to join me on one of our small group departures or one of our many Voyager Club sailings that provide added value and amenities.  “Bon Voyage”!!!
