    My Expertise

      Area(s) of expertise: South America/SE Asia/Adventure/Tourism
      Summary of expertise:
      As a tour escort in South America for most of my life, it became part of my soul. I moved to Peru and married into a huge Peruvian family and lived in Lima for 10 years.

      I moved back to the states in 1975 and started my agency in Atlanta (Explorations) in 1978 with the express purpose to sell "Mi Peru".

      In 2005 I sold Explorations and moved to Florida where I now operate my adventure travel business consulting on trips to all continents.

      Over the years, Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast as well as the Washington Post have touted me for my knowledge of the good eats and wines of South America. I have also been a member of the Saveur Magazine Travel Advisory Board for 5 years.

      I have been very lucky and have traveled to over 122 countries out of 195 in the world. South America and Southeast Asia remain two of my favorite places on Earth.

      Hiking, horseback riding, exploring the wild places, food and wine are what make me tick. I love to share my experiences with my clients.
