About
Some of my happiest moments have been on "small ships" with less than 1300 guests. My wife and I have sailed on most of the Seabourn,  Silversea, Crystal, Azamara, Oceania, Regent, and Windstar ships on more than 40 cruises. Our favorites are "repositioning cruises" going from one continent to another; and voyages to Australia, Japan, Southeast Asia, Alaska, Scandinavia, and the Med. We've taken photos and enjoyed restaurants in more than 60 nations.

My company is Cruises & Cameras, LLC that partners with LUXE Travel, a FROSCH Company, and the Signature Travel Network. I'm a Signature Travel Expert. Before I was a travel advisor, I used my doctorate to help school districts and colleges with strategic planning. Since the start of the Covid-19 Pandemic, I have earned two certificates in epidemiology taught by Johns Hopkins University's Bloomberg School of Public Health. Although I'm not a physician, I’m using what I've learned to help my clients deal with the realities of the pandemic. My most recent book is "How to Plan Your Next & BEST Cruise" (Amazon, 2019, 186 pages). I also write a weekly column for TRO Travelgram, one of the most widely-read newsletters and blogs in the travel industry.
