About Ed

Ed – Montserrat, Spain

Travel consultant. Marketer.  Spokesman.  Television host.  Radio personality.  Tour guide.  

I’ve been hooked on travel since I escorted my first groups in the 80’s.  (A group to Hawaii and a Caribbean cruise group)

In those days, I hung out at the brick and mortar travel agency of a friend.  Although my full time career (at that time) was in a different field, he always laughed that I was a ‘frustrated travel agent”.  He was right.

I loved all aspects of travel.  The sheer thought of being someplace exotic, or historic, or just sunny and warm.  I would peruse the brochures for hours and ‘travel in my head’.

A career change in the late 80’s introduced something new to the mix.  I began coordinating everything from sales meetings to conventions to trade shows.   From San Antonio to Key West, from Orlando to Las Vegas.  Anaheim to Cleveland.  A later ‘personal interest’ led me to the world of fan conventions which I also formulated and produced.

And then the industry changed, and technology allowed me to dive into the industry I’d always wanted to be part of.


So now I get to spend a lot of time planning travel for myself and others, helping others have the time of their lives and generally just immersing myself in the excitement of the world!
