“The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary” – Vince Lombardi
My love for travel began from a young age. I was 13 years old and traveling through Europe for the very first time when I knew that I wanted to pursue a career in the travel industry. That was thirty years ago and I am still just as passionate about travel today as I was back then.
I was born and raised in Santa Barbara, California. After graduating with a degree in Travel & Tourism and Business Administration, I joined the team of Carlson Wagonlit / Your Travel Center as a retail travel agent. In 1998 I earned my Certified Travel Counselor (CTC) designation and within a few years I was branch office manager, and then later promoted to Vice President of Sales and Marketing. My career with Your Travel Center brought me to Phoenix, Arizona where I currently reside. After nearly 15 years on the retail side of travel, I was ready for a career change. I joined the opening team of the Hotel Valley Ho in Scottsdale, Arizona as Director of Leisure and Corporate Sales in 2005 where I remained for over 10 years. Working for a AAA Four-Diamond property truly sharpened my hospitality and customer satisfaction skills. And it prepared me for my role as District Sales Manager for Trafalgar, CostSaver and Brendan Vacations, whom I joined in 2015. This is such an amazing company with an incredible legacy. Each day I get the privilege to help make people’s dreams become a reality. By creating guest experiences individually with itineraries that are authentic, effortless, and fun.
The industry experience I gained as a front-line travel agent, a sales and marketing executive, and a hospitality professional has helped me in building strong relationships with my clients. Having been on their side of the desk I know the pitfalls of agent/vendor relationships. And they have my commitment to being supportive, responsive, and innovative.
My favorite travel destination in Europe is London. With so much culture, history, amazing people and great food I could move there in a heartbeat! And it’s exciting to share my passion about the destination with future Trafalgar guests! When not traveling, I love to spend time at home relaxing with my wife Olga and our four year old boxer, Rocky. We are also very involved with our church and service projects.
