Why “VIP” Travel? Because our access to one-of-a-kind properties and once-in-a-lifetime experiences results in exclusive itineraries you won’t find anywhere else. Because our affiliation with leading luxury travel networks often nets our clients extra special perks and superb treatment. And because—above all else—we want our client to feel like they’re the most important person in the world to us as we work together. As a family-run travel agency, we cherish our relationships. We put our whole hearts into every trip we design, and we live for the moment our travelers turn into family (which happens often, as our clients return to us again and again for their vacation planning!). Our goal? To make “luxury” travel absolutely effortless for you—and to include at least one moment on your itinerary that takes your breath away in the best kind of way.
I founded VIP Travel Experience in 2012 to create escapes that truly spoil travelers. My background in the planning, scheduling, and execution of construction projects in the energy sector has certainly shown me the importance of being a stickler for perfecting details. In fact, the projects I was involved with spanned across the U.S. and abroad—so it didn’t take long for frequent travel to become not only second nature, but a real passion for me.
Coming from the fast-paced energy sector, I know how important it is to take a break from work. And when you only get a limited amount of vacation time each year, you really want to make it count. I’d be honored if you entrusted the VIP team with ensuring as much value as possible is packed into your next luxury escape.
On my bucket list: ICEHOTEL, Sweden, Dubai & Enjoying a wonderful meal at a restaurant built into a cave in a cliff overlooking the Italian Coast.
I’d rather be: Working from a Costa Rica beach house overlooking the Caribbean.
When I’m not working: Exercising, keeping physically fit, leading a life of Health & Wellness.
Specialty: Ultimate Experience
The most thrilling, eye-opening moments of one’s life often involve travel (that’s certainly been the case for me!). But all too often, we miss out on these moments—because we’re caught up in the “what ifs.” What if I don’t speak the language? What if we get lost? What if something goes wrong? I hate to see would-be travelers turn away from life-changing experiences out of fear. Because there IS a way to travel in comfort, ease, and luxury almost anywhere you’d want to go—you just need the right expert to plan it all! I want to be that expert for you.
I’ve spent 30+ years traveling internationally and forming relationships with the best guides, general managers, and tour operators on the ground. With the right connections, and a trusted travel advisor to pull it all together for you, life-changing luxury travel is well within reach!
On my bucket list: Night in Trullo in Puglia Italy, Island hopping in Greece, and a private yacht experience with friends cruising Dalmatian Coast.
I’d rather be in: Italy (always Italy!)
When I’m not planning travel: Traveling or sipping vino and planning our next travel adventure with our family and friends or planning our next exploratory travels with my son (and fellow travel planner!) Justin.
I first fell in love with travel on a 15-day trip to Australia. Every single day brought something new and spectacular—from hiking through rainforests to snorkeling over the vast Great Barrier Reef. I realized then that “taking a vacation” didn’t just have to mean posting up at the hotel pool! That’s what I strive to provide my own clients on their vacations-jaw-dropping moments of exhilaration.
I specialize in active travel to some of the most stupendous places on the planet—from Iceland to Oahu, Thailand to Tahiti. Because the best way to experience a destination is to get your hands a little dirty as you deeply explore the landscape. And you can certainly do that while maintaining a luxury vibe—let me show you how!
On my bucket list: I would love to see Victoria Falls in Africa, Spend a night glamping next to Uluru in the Australian Outback, and hike the Rainbow Mountains in Peru!
I’d rather be in: Australia
When I’m not planning travel: I’m hiking or kayaking through Louisiana’s backwoods and waters
