About Me

My Background


I have been getting paid to travel the world and training others to do the same for over 20 years.   We live the  wonderful ‘gifts’ of tour directing and guiding, including travel, adventure, sharing destinations, cultures, stories, lifestyles, knowledge, history, experiences and helping to make dreams come true.   Let me help you to do the same.    Get started today!

How I Got Started


I always wanted to travel!   When working as a Physical Education teacher, I spent all of my holidays traveling.  It was my passion.  I started my travel career years ago working on cruise ships and then moved on to leading international tours.  I used to pinch myself with the excitement of visiting new destinations.  I love working in the travel industry.!

Get Paid to Travel


In 1993 I started training others to do the same.  I worked with colleges throughout Southern California colleges.  That lead to an online course offered through over 2,400 colleges worldwide.  It was a wonderful experience working with international tour directors and guides worldwide.  Today all of the lessons and more can be downloaded immediately in my "Tour Director Training Guide" .  Get started today!   



Thank you so very much for everything that you have done to contribute towards launching my career as a tour director. Your book, Tour Director Training Guide, get paid to travel, is like a bible to me for working in the tourism industry. In addition to reading your book, earning a Certificate of Completion for Professional Tour Management Training made me think about my life and experiences and focus on why I want to be a tour director and taught me how to achieve my goal. I just got off the phone with you, where you spent an extraordinary amount of time giving me positive feedback and tips and suggestions for my future. I think that talking with you, reading your book and taking your class have been one of the best educational and instructional experiences in my life. I will remember information that I learned from you and carry notes with me for the rest of my career. You've helped me with education and training for working in the tourism industry to specific comments about my resume and how to prepare for job interviews.

Everything was fantastic!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart and the soles of my tour director shoes.
