David has taken his passion for travel and turned it into a career, providing unique experiences tailored to individual needs and tastes.
After graduating from Vanderbilt University, David worked for a number of years as a structural engineer, giving him the opportunity to travel throughout North America (only two states left to check off his list!). He always saw the benefit of being on the road and learned that even inspecting concrete can be glamorous when it’s followed by a weekend in Napa. The skills he developed throughout his professional life combined with his love of world travel make David a capable and efficient agent.
In his spare time, David can be found racing triathlons, which coincidentally are also great reasons to travel.
What is your most memorable travel experience?
My favorite trip is always the last place I visited, but Morocco and Japan stand out in my travel memories. In both destinations, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed being immersed in the culture. I also think food is a great way to learn about a place, so shopping in the souks of Marrakech and cooking in a local riad was a highlight in Morocco.
Which destinations do you go back to again and again?
I love southern Africa! My first safari was to Zambia and Botswana and I was blown away. I’ve also been fortunate to spend time in South Africa, which offers extraordinarily diverse experiences. In a single trip, you can visit bustling cities, experience the winelands, go on safari in the bush and relax on an amazing beach.
- I think it’s important to not only pack smartly but also spend your time wisely. Don’t get overloaded by trying to pack too much in your bag or your itinerary.
David worked very closely with us to cater the trip to our interests. Everything turned out fantastically, from the time we touched down in Johannesburg to the time we departed: transportation, tours, restaurants, museums, and safari—all were seamlessly organized and well-timed. We had an unforgettable time in South Africa, and I can’t wait to return. David goes the extra mile with his clients, I will be recommending him to all my friends and family!
David helped make our first trip to Italy outstanding. He listened to our priorities and then crafted an itinerary that was perfect for us. He found us amazing hotels, and located unique experiences that we would not have found on our own, such as our cooking class in rural Tuscany. We would recommend him to anyone looking for top-notch travel advice.
David was super helpful in assisting me in planning a ski trip for a group from my office. I had my eye on two condos that I wanted to rent for my group, and David was able to connect with the property manager and save me over $1,000 on them. His helpfulness didn't stop with lodging; he also did the dirty work of keeping details organized, assisted with equipment rental and transportation and was quick to provide a handful of restaurant and activity recommendations. His services were more than worth it and helped keep me sane as I planned our trip. Can't thank you enough!
