Chesapeake, Virginia Travel Agent

An independent agent with Nexion, LLC in Irving, TX, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Group Fundraising & Special Needs Travel Expert


After 40 years of dedicated service in the healthcare industry, I've found a new way to put my extensive skill set to use. My travel business specializes in constructing accessible itineraries for clients with mild to severe health limitations.

As a retired nursing home administrator, I have in depth knowledge of the constraints, requirements, and concerns facing medically-challenged travelers.

It's my goal to make the wonders of the modern world equally available for anyone who dreams of seeing them.

While Internet travel sites can provide customers with cost comparisons or offer the most basic type of bookings, they can't provide personal attention and advocacy. That's where my focus lies.

I've handled a wide variety of trips, from overseas travels in search of alternative medical treatments to a break from reality at a 5-star all-inclusive resort to unique honeymoons that reflect each couple's personal list of must-see sites.

I can create air, hotel, and ground packages to—and through—almost anywhere in the world.

Not every trip has to be luxury-minded or include a bevy of modern amenities. I built one of my favorite customized itineraries around the bucket list dream of a client embarking on a long-awaited sabbatical.

With my help, he and a friend hiked across the Alaskan wilderness, sometimes traveling by canoe and making dinner from Alaskan Greyling they fished themselves. They helped build an addition onto a school in a remote part of the Yukon Territory and took in the Northern lights. It was a spectacular, once-in-a-lifetime experience, and I was proud to have had a part in making it possible.

My own quest to see the world has taken me to 58 cities in 18 countries. Joined by my lovely wife of 20 fun-filled years, I've traversed the Canadian Rideau Canal in a 40-foot houseboat and explored Spain from coast to coast.

Seeing so much has been a blessing, and I'd love to help you experience the same.

Dave made this vacation very stress free.

Reviewed By harleyman - VA. | Traveled to
Dave orchestrated a truley wonderful Birthday/Vaca for my wife and I aboard one of Royal Caribeans finest ships. He gave us alot of great hotel choices in Old San Juan for our 2 days spent in Puerto Rico prior to sailing. Dave helped in selecting a terrific cabin mid ship close to all the attractions. Thanks Dave for a awesome relaxing trip. We will be your loyal clients for life.

Found us great deals!

Reviewed By MAB - Macedon, NY | Traveled to
Dave helped find us a great deal on a European cruise and was helpful in arranging all of our pre-cruise travels. He found us a VERY good deal on a South American cruise for 2016! He's been keeping us informed on airfares, excursions and activities.

Honeymoon Extravaganza

Reviewed By cBechnerMiller - Jamestown, NY | Traveled to
My husband and I needed to plan a honeymoon after a short engagement and I knew that Dave would be able to find (and put together) the perfect vacation for us! He asked us questions about what we needed/wanted and he got right to work. He gave us a few great options to choose from and we couldn't have been happier! He took care of the flights, the car rentals, the baggage, and more! He sent me all of the information to print out and he communicated with us the entire time! I had a few questions along the way and he always responded in a timely manner! Honestly, it was beautiful and perfect and we were thrilled with our cruise, all of the side trips (that he also planned for us), and of course Dave himself! He made this trip so easy for us (and we've both traveled a lot and know how much there is to planning a trip) and we will definitely use his services in the future! We will remember this Honeymoon forever and will always think of Dave fondly for helping us so much!

He really knows his stuff

Reviewed By Lou - Rochester, NY | Traveled to
He was a pleasure to work with on arranging our cruise. He was very knowledgeable about the various room options and excursions at each port of call and their cost. He was very good at finding ways to save money so you could get a great time at a reasonable price. I'd highly recommend him.
