Some artists paint. Others sing. My artistry is helping people plan the perfect vacation - part relaxation, part escape and part education. The archaeologist Wade Davis said, "Other cultures are not failed attempts at being you; they are unique manifestations of the human spirit." My passion is meeting and experiencing as many cultures as possible and helping others do the same. I do not specialize in American resorts abroad. I specialize in finding real people in their real cultures and experiencing just how unique the human spirit really is.
