President of Corporate & Travel

I have been very lucky in my travels and experience, and have been able to experience some of the finest luxury experiences, hotels, airline cabins and more. Luxury travel can be a daunting term, but its much more attainable then most people realize. While you always have the 'big players', there are often smaller, boutique properties in nearly every destination that provide a luxurious experience without always having to pay the luxury price. Whether its a private jet trip to Australia, New Zealand and Fiji, or a long weekend escape to the Caribbean, luxury travel has many levels to it.Hotels and Airlines are one of my passions.


My personal and work trips tend to be short, focused driven, and my goal is to maximize my time in a given city or country. With my tight requirements, flying in a premium cabin and having a well located and comfortable hotel are priorities. Have you ever wondered what the difference really is between Emirates and Qatar? How do you figure out if one is worth the premium over the other? Are you going to be more comfortable at the Four Seasons, the Ritz-Carlton, or a boutique property you may not be familiar with? These are the hidden aspects of your journey that I know inside out.


Imagine waking up, looking out your window and seeing the Taj Mahal rise above the tree line, bathed in warm, orange glow from the rising sun. Or looking out from your balcony, gazing at the turquoise blue Pacific Ocean. Maybe your ideal day is strolling through back alleys of a small Italian village, or listening to the wildlife of Africa across its plains. These are the reasons that I love travel, to show people the world and create unique experiences that show them the real culture of the destination.


My approach to travel is its not just about the destination, but how you get there as well.

My Travel Stories

Qatar's New Q Suite

Qatar’s new Q Suite has quickly become my go to premium product in the air. The seats are spacious and incredibly comfortable. For the first time in my life, I find my self drawn to one of the middle seats, as I found them to have a little extra room and privacy – who would have thought!

Amazing honeymoon in Africa
Ian did an amazing job planning/arranging our entire honeymoon. My involvement was limited to identifying the two countries of interest (South Africa and Zimbabwe). Ian did the rest. I was impressed by the amount of activities/site we were able to fit into the two weeks without feeling rushed. Ian was even available over the weekend to help when one of our flights was cancelled due to weather. I would happily work with Ian again!
