Italy, Portugal and Scotland Specialist
I joined Distincte after playing over 250 rounds of golf on the Old Course at St Andrews and have decades of experience as a marketing, strategy, financial, and business development executive. Along with my expertise as an executive, I love luxury, experiential travel and have logged over 2 million miles in the air to every corner of the world. My first travel experience was aboard the USS United States for the 1-week journey from New York to Southhampton, England when I was 5 years old. One of my favorite travel memories dates back to the 1997 Ryder Cup in Valderrama, Spain when I was one of the 100 passengers aboard the Concorde with the USA team. (The ride over was far more jovial than the return!) Also, for 15 years, I owned a successful home letting business (Monarchs House) in St Andrews facilitating golf and lifestyle experiences for well over 1,500 happy clients. Also, I was a consultant with St Andrews Grand, an iconic, luxury residential property located overlooking the Old Course’s 18th green. Besides Scotland, I have extensively traveled to Italy & Portugal. I have developed unique & authentic experiences to both countries for an extensive list of clients.
The Prestige Tour/Scotland
