Cruise & Group Vacation Specialist

I was raised in a family that made travel a high priority. Vacations took us all over the U.S. and even into Mexico. Even after college, I was able to make a trip with my father in our old beat-up station wagon from Mobile, Alabama to Alaska and then another trip up the East coast to Nova Scotia.

In 1995, I opened one of the first CruiseOne franchises in the U.S., which focused on home-based cruise-only agencies. My first large group was a corporate incentive group for a large restaurant company. I have become the "go-to" guy for group travel in a running club that I am part of and have put together over 15 groups cruises for the organization. In addition to booking many cruises, I was able to put together several large groups to land-based destinations, such as Australia and Costa Rica.

Today, I am in a full-service leisure environment with Travel Leaders. Although I enjoy working one-on-one with individuals, I really love the opportunity to work with groups, putting together custom vacations tailor-made for the interests of the group. I have currently managing a full ship charter as well!

If you need someone who has traveled extensively and has experience managing group travel for groups ranging from family reunions to full ship charters, let's get together and give your group a trip they will never forget!

Great Professional Service

Reviewed By Betsy - Mobile, Alabama | Traveled to Key West ~ Florida ~ USA
He was great! I had found the cruise online but he got us an even better price than what I had found. He e-mailed me all the paperwork that we needed so I didn't have to worry anything. He checked on us just prior to the trip and as a follow-up afterwards. I knew that I could call him if I had any trouble or any questions! Very professional!
