"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime." Mark Twain


I am a very experienced ITMI certified tour director with vast amounts of destination knowledge from years of personal travel, as well as nineteen years of experience as a tour director.  During that time I have taken groups throughout most of the western United States as well as many international trips covering four continents and more than twenty nations.  I consistently received some of the highest customer ratings for my employers.  I am also skilled at upselling if needed.  In addition to my expertise with motor coach touring, I have also managed much larger groups in my positions with meetings, incentives and sports tour groups.  The region in which I have the most experience is California and the Western National Parks.  However my industry reputation is that I can successfully lead a tour to anywhere on a moment’s notice. I have worked in our industry for many years, but I am not a dinosaur.  One of my projects during the pandemic was to complete the ITMI Master Class in Technology, and I have fully integrated the latest technology into my tour directing toolkit.
