Having enjoyed a variety of roles in the travel industry from working as a travel agent on the high street, being ground crew at Gatwick Airport and also cabin crew for British Airways, I have been lucky enough to globe trot around the world.
My passion now lies in creating luxurious as well as memorable holidays whether it be a tailor made itinerary around the Far East, a honeymoon beach escape in the Caribbean or a fly drive holiday around New England.
Where I have travelled recently
My most recent holidays have been to the Maldives and also, New York and Barbados on a twin centre holiday. Barbados has all the glitz and glamour you would expect, with world-class restaurants and Sandy Lane, perhaps the finest hotel in the Caribbean.
Most Memorable Experience
Enjoying sunset cocktails for two on the runway at the Desroches Island in the Seychelles - the ultimate romantic experience! I also love seeing nature so the orang-utans in Borneo were a treat.
My Favourite Destination
This tends to depend on what kind of holiday I am looking for. If it's unashamed luxury and escapism I'm after, then I love the British Virgin Islands, Turks and Caicos and the Seychelles. The Caribbean, as a whole, is one of my favourite places - every island is so different so you can keep on returning and experiencing something new.
For the best city break, however long it may be, I return time and time again to New York, Boston and Dubai. New York is and remains a special destination for me, with the best shopping, restaurants and attractions.
My Favourite Accommodation
It is really impossible to pick just one hotel so my favourite combination would have to be in the island of St Lucia. Sugar Beach, a Viceroy Resort is quite simply outstanding. The staff, location, dining and accommodation are all the top of the top. Combined with the elegant rustic design of Boucan by Hotel Chocolat, this is my perfect way to enjoy the island.

Just to say thank you for arranging a super trip. Amanpulo was sensational. We were upgraded from a two bed villa to a four bed villa. The private chef and butler service was first class as we're the restaurants when we ventured out.As an island it was truly as your colleague described it. It can hold no more than 100 guests so it feels very exclusive.
We would go back again in the drop of a hat. 4 p's - pristine, private, peaceful and professional. This allied to Filipino staff who were warm and always eager to help makes it a winner in our book.
Well done Tom.
