I was born to travel. From my first trip to Disney World in 1980, it was my dream. And now my dream is a reality. My dedication to customer service is evident in all I do for my clients.
My passion for travel started as a young child traveling throughout the Northeast with my family. I loved the new adventures and seeing new places, and the memories that those trips made. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 7 years old. I have since traveled to Disney over 20 times now and every time I enter the Magic Kingdom I am brought back to the feeling I had the first time of pure amazement. I tell my clients that are going with children for the first time to take a step back and watch the look on their faces as that is a memory in the making. It is that feeling that made me want to get involved in the travel industry. I knew I had to help people make magical memories. I have also cruised many times on both Norwegian cruise lines and Carnival Cruise lines, reaching the platinum level with them. The best part of my job is receiving photos from my clients of the smiles on their faces.
My first travel experience (although I can’t say I remember it) was in 1977 when I was 8 months old. My Grandfather lived in Garden Grove, CA, a stone’s throw away from Disneyland. I was lucky enough to visit him nearly every summer and of course visit Mickey as well! This is where my love (some may call it an obsession) with Disney began and continues to this day. In 1999 during another family trip my girlfriend Wendy and I became engaged when I asked her to marry me in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle. In 1989 I experienced Walt Disney World for the first time on a trip with my father and my sister. I have since visited 11 times and am now lucky enough to go “home” with our 5-year-old son Jack. We have stayed at multiple resorts on WDW property although I would have to say our favorite is the Art of Animation resort; specifically, the Cars family suites. Seeing my favorite place through my sons eyes has given me a new appreciation and even deeper love for it. If I could help other families have those experiences for themselves I would consider that a tremendous accomplishment. When we are not at WDW most of my free time is spent planning our next visit. My commuting time is spent listening to various Disney travel podcasts and time at my desk is spent with Disney Parks music in the background. I would consider myself well versed in domestic Disney travel!
I am also a big sports fan and have traveled throughout the country to various baseball, football, basketball and hockey games. Additionally, I enjoy visiting Canton Ohio each year for the Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremonies. Wendy and I have visited Sandals resorts in St. Lucia and Jamaica and other resorts in Mexico and the Bahamas. I have also traveled to Quebec, Canada for the annual Winter Carnivale. During this trip I was fortunate enough to meet and get a picture with former President Richard Nixon on top of a huge ice castle!
