Why do they call you “Mr. Think Outside the Box”?

A lot times in life when most people are going left I am going right. I am not always looking to totally reinvent the wheel, but always looking to be different. It’s hard for people to see you in the marketplace if you blend in with everyone else.

How many countries have you visited so far?

I have no idea man haha.  I don’t count. It’s never been game of counting for me. I don’t even know where to estimate. I’ve been to every continent except Antarctica. I have alot more to see. I think I’ve seen 10-15 percent of the countries in the world. I prefer slow paced travel.  I will spend a month or even 3 months in single big city to really get the vibe of the place.

Name your top three destinations (one historic, one stylish, and one picturesque):

Historic I would have to say Italy.  Visiting Pompeii was something out of a movie for me.  Most stylish I would have to say Thailand. Most picturesque place has to be Fiji. Island hopping out there was truly breathtaking. Fiji for me was like a movie coming to life.

Give us your ‘Top 5’ list for one of the above destinations, like a mini-guide or to-do list of sorts.

Anyone that knows me I promote Thailand in a big way. Here is Top Five in Thailand video.

What destination do you find yourself returning to again and again? What about it is so alluring?

Thailand ,  The Value, the People, Weather, variety of different places you can go.

Your favorite travel movie?

Not sure I have a movie, but I do have a favorite travel music video. That was Snoop and Pharell with Beautiful.

Favorite restaurant in the U.S.?

I eat out for breakfast lunch and dinner 95% of the year. There isn’t a single restaurant stands out for me head and shoulder above the rest.

Favorite airport?

I can’t lie I am airport lounge addict. I have been creating a video for past year on all those experiences. I used to walk by the doors and have no idea. It’s like a secret underworld in the airport. First class international lounges are oftentimes more fun than flying.  You have amazing showers, gourmet food, massages, unlimited free top shelf liquor, and the list goes on. It makes waiting for flights easy and seamless.  You never know who you are going to run into. The British Airways lounge at the Heathrow Airport is pretty impressive.

Favorite airline?

I am Executive Platinum on American Airlines and OneWorld Alliance is great.

Least favorite airline?

THIS ONE IS EASY SPIRIT AIRLINES ……. not much more need to be said haha.

Your favorite travel quote?

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
