New York, New York Travel Agent
Corporate, Media and Advertising Travel Expert
Celebrity or not, everyone deserves star treatment when traveling. I make that happen for you through my experience and CIRE Travel connections. As CIRE president, Eric Hrubant says, “Our connections are your connections. Perks. Waivers. Upgrades. Enjoy them all. You know people who know people.”
For the past 30 years, I've worked as a travel advisor, specializing in corporate travel for media and advertising. I’ve managed itineraries for hundreds of photo shoots, which requires making travel arrangements for models, photographers, makeup artists and crew, along with their trunks full of camera gear and wardrobe. Booking flights and hotels is only part of the extremely detail-oriented work that goes into this level of travel planning. I also work with high-profile celebrities, who trust and appreciate that I handle their travel arrangements with the utmost discretion.
Before joining CIRE Travel, I worked for Conde Nast for 18 years where I booked a lot of celebrity and entertainment travel. And I mean a lot… Vanity Fair Oscar parties. GQ’s Men of the Year awards. Glamour’s Women of the Year summit. Golf Digest Masters’ events. Bon Appetit’s Vegas Uncork’d. Vogue magazine cover shoots. One of my favorite projects was working with celebrity photographer, Annie Leibovitz, to arrange her travel and that of some other names you might recognize for a Vanity Fair photo shoot. (I can name-drop now since the magazine hit newsstands a few years ago… Paltrow, Aniston, Dunst, Hayek and others.)
I’ve known CIRE’s president, Eric Hrubant, for almost 20 years. When he started CIRE Travel in 2013, Eric wanted me on the team, but the timing wasn’t right. Five years later Eric texted, “It’s time!” And it was. In the same way that Hollywood reboots the classics, I’m glad to be at a travel agency that has brought back personal relationships… Somewhere I can look 10 steps ahead for clients to create the best experience, where customer service and traveler satisfaction reign.
