By the time I was 17, I had been raised on three Continents – Asia, Africa and America which ingrained in me the thirst for travel. I am a passionate Entrepreneur, as CEO of Creative Journeys, a Travel and Event Management Company which I founded in 1990. I believe travel is the best form of education! My most favorite and exhilarating experience was trekking Mt. Kilimanjaro at 19,341 feet and recently the Inca Trail in Machu Picchu. I have been in the travel business for more than 4 decades and have enjoyed vast experience in all phases of the industry: groups, meetings & incentives, corporate travel, weddings and event management, but my forte is high-end vacation planning for families and groups. I especially love creating individualized vacations to Africa, Australia, Europe and of course India!
I am in my zen when dancing, especially Bharatanatyam, a classical dance art from South India, which I have practiced since the age of 4. I find teaching this ancient form of dance art as purely meditative. I am very active in the community, serving on the board of charity organizations and supporting causes. My hobbies include traveling, hiking, reading, writing and creating multi-media art. I am very blessed to be surrounded by a super supportive mother, a loving family, a devoted husband, young and adult kids and 5 beautiful little grandchildren!
My strength comes from learning something positive from everyone that I meet and discovering daily happiness within myself.
