My Story . . .
It all begins with passion. That, and a scuba dive trip to Fiji.
On a particularly cold Colorado day in 1998, a friend invited me on a very last-minute trip to Fiji. The appeal of escaping both the cold weather and a hectic business travel schedule was simply too much to pass, and within 24 hours my management consultant job was put on hold, bags were packed, tickets were in hand, and Fiji was on the horizon. To describe this trip as life-altering would only be scratching the surface. Returning home, I had a new sense of purpose, and also found myself with a new career in the Travel Industry.Travel was no longer a hobby nor an escape. It was now my passion.
For several years I worked with a small, very successful South Pacific wholesaler. In January 2003, I founded Creative Resort Marketing, a small travel marketing firm dedicated to providing creative, innovative, and effective solutions to resorts and travel companies.
Having traveled extensively throughout the world, I truly have a sincere passion, and a deep appreciation of the need for travel. My travels have helped fill my life with wonderful stories, exciting adventures, and lifelong friends around the globe. Working in the travel industry, I have established many strong and long-lasting relationships, and have extensive experience interacting with international airlines, travel operators, specialty wholesalers, online travel agencies, tourism offices, travel agents, media, and travel products and services throughout the world. The combination of work and life experiences allow me to relate to both the travel provider as well as the guest.
I am so very appreciative for travel and the lessons I continue to learn from visiting out-of-the-way places, meeting new friends, experiencing new cultures, and trying new cuisines. Along with my wife and son, I am so very fortunate to have visited so many diverse destinations. To many people, travel is a luxury. To me, it is a necessity. My well-worn passport sits prominently on my desk, ready for the next adventure. And, when asked to pick my favorite travel destination, my answer is simple: the next one.
My passion for travel certainly translates into my passion for my company and my clients. I very much pride myself on being dedicated to my clients, putting their interest and priorities first. And I am so very excited to share stories and experiences with others.
Put my passion to work for you!
