While studying Philosophy and Psychology at Texas State University, I became incredibly interested in the fundamental nature of reality and experience.  I found that most people are just trying to pursue happiness through experience, and there are few things more capable of providing a transformative experience than travel.  Travel allows us to step outside our routine and our day-to-day and to connect with people from all over the world.  We’re given insight into other people and their lives, and this ability to connect can provide meaningful insight into one’s own life.  Even further, these experiences are only enriched when they’re shared with friends and family.

This is why I consider myself so lucky to be a part of this company and this industry.  It’s a family business that’s built on love, support, and shared experience, and we’re able to help provide other people with the opportunity to share meaningful, powerful experiences with their loved ones.  There’s nothing more rewarding than knowing that you’ve played a part in helping others create experiences and memories that they’ll carry with them forever.

A little more about me…

  1. My favorite movie is… Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
  2. My favorite musical artist/band is… Young the Giant.
  3. My favorite author is… Christopher Hitchens.
  4. My favorite quote is… “Don’t take refuge in the false security of consensus…” – Christopher Hitchens
  5. In my spare time I like to… Write, play, and listen to music.
  6. My recommended travel tip is… To be present.  Anytime you’re doing something new or different, it’s easy to allow thought, worry, stress, anxiety, or fear to take precedence.  When you allow this to happen and you’re stuck inside your own head, you end up just robbing yourself of the ability to fully experience all of these special moments available to you.  In order to get the most out of travel, you just have to let go and be present.
