A passion for travel and adventure is in my blood. My father owned Lake Forest Travel in the 70’s and I was infected by the travel bug. My earliest memories include being whisked away every year with my five siblings to our place on the then very remote Caribbean island of Nevis. Each trip involved stopping on a different island on the way to discover new hotels for my father to add to his travel agency portfolio. To this day, that home in Nevis remains in our family and I’ve become close friends with many locals over the years. In addition to accumulating a large knowledge base from having visited and evaluated many high end properties throughout the Caribbean, I provide a unique understanding of Caribbean life from my life long intimate attachment to that island and the region as a whole.
In addition to my extensive knowledge of the Caribbean, I have travelled to and researched locales that range from the traditional destinations such as Ireland (where my daughter was married) and Western Europe to far more exotic ones such as Nepal, Tanzania, Botswana and Slovenia. Along the way, I have skied the Dolomites in Italy, trekked for a week around Mont Blanc, roamed the fells of the Lake District in the UK, slept at 13,500 ft. at Annapurna base camp in Nepal, and gone foraging for food with the Hadzas of Tanzania, the last hunter-gatherer tribe in Africa. Yes, I love adventure! I love the outdoors, nature and being inspired by new places and new people. That’s not to say I don’t love creature comforts like the hotel spa, cocktail bar and dining room! Through work and personal travel, I’ve had the good fortune to eat at Michelin starred restaurants and stay at four and five starred hotels globally.
Adventure comes in many forms and I believe that the unique breadth of my adventures gives me the perspective and insight needed to create the ideal travel experience for you.
