My Journey in the Travel Industry started as a Travel Advisor in Vancouver, Canada. 


Over 25 years ago I started my journey in the industry as a travel advisor with an agency based in downtown Vancouver, Canada my hometown. After arranging a few group trips to Europe, I decided to stay and travelled extensively throughout the continent until settling in Spain.

In 1999 I co-founded the incoming DMC specialty travel agency. I have worked with hundreds of travel agencies and tour operators overseas to help create upscale tailor-made tour itineraries for their clients visiting Spain and Portugal.

Apart from arranging holidays I personally lead our food & wine-related trips in Galicia and Northern Portugal which I find a great way to really understand what clients want.

Arranging the filming locations for TV Producers

I have worked for movie and documentary production companies arranging the filming locations and personally escorting them. Here was a documentary back in 2002...

Finisterre, Celtic France & Spain - two 48 min. mini-series BRAVO TV

Part 2- Galicia & Asturias 48 min.

Peter Murphy of SeaBright Production in Nova Scotia, Canada produced a documentary journey that explores Celtic music and culture in two of the most remote and least known parts of Europe, Galicia and Asturias in Spain and Britany in France. Finisterre means "end of the world" and in both of these regions, there is a vibrant movement dedicated to maintaining the Celtic culture.





Back in 2018 I helped arrange an episode for the American TV Series Produced by Litton Entertainment...

Ocean Treks with Jeff Corwin

Spanish Seaside Adventure (2018)

Jeff´s ship arrives in Vigo, Spain where he discovers an ancient civilization that once thrived along this dramatic coastline. Then, he experiences the local seafood culture firsthand by harvesting mussels, before scrambling the rocky coastline with a spear to gather a prized delicacy.
