Guide profile:

Born in the USA, schooled, worked and lived in Switzerland (throughout Europe) during my teens and early adulthood, I arrived permanently in Australia in 1988. For several years in Europe and Australia, I organised and operated educational tours and holiday camps for youth from around the world. In 1993, I began touring Australia and New Zealand full-time with adults, equally from around the world.

I feel genuinely privileged to accompany visitors on their 'once-in-a-lifetime' discovery of this magnificent region.

When we travel together, I can guarantee you a fascinating, complete, informative and revelatory (= unforgettable!) experience on your holiday 'down under'!

Please do get in touch!

PS: While I'm based and work regularly in Brisbane and southeast Queensland, please contact me to discuss any tour considerations you're making for Australi: not only do I 'tailor' your ideal tour....I can make them significantly easier for you, too!
