TRAVEL EXPERT & CONSULTANT
As a consultant to the travel industry, I work with tour operators, destination management companies, hotels, and independent experience providers. I provide destination and sales training, formulate products, curate experiences, and craft sustainable, boutique travel solutions. I also help businesses determine their client demographic, and compose content to bring their message to the market.
I’m enthusiastic about product development, branding and design. I have a zest for seeing beyond the norm and championing the underdog. I believe the real experiences lie with people — with focus on “P” for passion and people, and not just profit. Niche companies and sustainability are my forte.
Over my 28-year career, I have become one of the foremost authorities in travel around India and Nepal.
Prior to setting up Indian Experiences, I was responsible for product development, content writing, and sales and marketing at Amperstand Travel. I have devised products and experiences, as well as written websites, for Real Holidays, Experience Travel Group, Selective Asia, Bespoke India Travel and Rajbari Bawali. I have also written for Ratan Vilas, Mandawa Haveli and Curtain Call Adventures, to name a few.
In India, I helped Le Passage to India set up their luxury travel brand Luxe India. I also consulted for Lebua Hotels, Creative Travel, Destinations Unlimited, and Beyond the Taj. Adventure, rural and sustainable travel is the path my career is now taking, and my most recent project was assisting in the development of a community homestay project in Nepal.
