As a Team TravelSmiths member, I am no stranger to travel. I started planning our family vacations over 15 years ago and found that I thrived on researching trips where we could get the best “bang for our buck.” The word got out and soon I was booking trips for family and friends. I enjoy planning honeymoons so couples have one less thing to worry about before the big day, cruises for couples or family-reunions and Caribbean getaways.

Some of my travels include England, Scotland, St. Thomas, St. Maarten, St. John, Mexico, Aruba, Bermuda and Bahamas. Can you tell I’m partial to the Caribbean? We have also taken family trips to California, Arizona, Disney, the Florida Keys, Charleston, Myrtle Beach and most of the East Coast.

I am a certified Master Agent for the AM resorts which include SECRETS (adults only) and DREAMS (Family) properties and also a Certified Sandals and Beaches Specialist. I have booked numerous Destination Weddings, including my own daughter’s wedding in Key West.

As a lifelong resident of Manasquan and the beautiful Jersey Shore, I have just retired after more than 30 years of teaching and coaching in Manasquan High School. I plan to help the numerous people I have met over those 3 decades plan their dream vacations or getaways through TravelSmiths.

As a father of four, I know what it means to take a much needed family vacation or time away with your significant other. I welcome the opportunity to plan your perfect vacation and create memorable moments for you and your loved ones. Ciao!
