Overview

I possess deep knowledge of optimizing travel, whether to maximize value or minimize cost, from the experience of helping dozens of clients and friends alike with their travel planning requirements. I have particular expertise with the redemption of loyalty points and miles, a fluency based in part on prolific personal travels (100,000+ miles annually).

I am proficient at thorough research in support of clients' travel requirements and strive to approach all my engagements with a high degree of professionalism, which includes a commitment...

My experience extends across the range of airline and hotel brands, including the Star, oneworld, and Skyteam airline alliances, and the Starwood, Hilton, Hyatt, Marriott, and Club Carlson hotel programs.

In addition, I can direct well-honed research skills toward identifying both classic and off-beat activities at the various destinations of an itinerary, with options tailored to the client's preferences.

I leverage power-search sources in resolving complex travel requirements, including ITA Software and the KVS Availability Tool, in addition to mainstream sites like TripAdvisor, Flyertalk, and Yelp.

Under no circumstances do I earn any commission or financial benefit for my travel advice (aside from the direct compensation from a client). All my service is tailored with only the client's best interest in mind.
