About Me:

Hi! I’ve been working for Madison House Travel (an affiliate of The Travel Society) since 2016. I have been a booking agent and am now Head of Operations.

While our agency primarily books entertainment travel (specifically music business), our leisure business is growing! We get requests for all around the world, and I have personally designed trips all across Central America, South America, the Caribbean, Europe, Asia, and Disney. I am currently expanding my knowledge of many countries in Africa and hope to have the opportunity to design your perfect Africa adventure soon.

About Me:

Travel for me is all about the experience. The experience of planning, the anticipation of the trip, getting to a destination and then immersing myself. Every aspect is important and every detail is important to me; even which exact seat on the plane is likely to give me the best experience. I’m all about goals and goal setting. I love working with clients to help them figure out what is most important for them. When they’re not sure, being able to use my own experience and network is where it gets fun as no two people are the same. I’m also an expert when it comes to using points and miles and am happy to help you get the most out of them.

Client Quotes:

Spain was wonderful and we all really appreciated the hard work you put into finding us such great hotels as well as tours and travel suggestions. Our guide at the Alhambra was incredibly knowledgeable as was Sebastian in Madrid. We ended up spending 7.5 hours with him including a long lunch. He sure knows his history and was eager to educate us. I think he appreciated how curious we all were.” -Pam, Laura & Jeff ”

We had a fabulous vacation. The time you spent finding out our needs was clear from the itinerary. You did an unbelievable job on our itinerary and the guides and drivers were awesome. The itinerary was flawless and hotels were very nice. I carefully kept tract of the name of each guide with the intention of singling the best out for praise, but I rate each of them at 10 out 10. They were all exceedingly professional and knowledgeable, projected pride in their work, and did a wonderful job of seamlessly adjusting their tours to match Jackie’s abilities. I will be happy to serve as a reference for you.” -Jackie & Bruce

He loves to share this fascination with others and in the process, opens your eyes and mind to these new adventures. He has gathered a generation of explorers from around the world to share their personal stories of adventure, just so that we all can marvel and dream our own travel adventures.” -Bruce Naglee, Hotel management Arizona

“For our honeymoon Tom personally planned all details of our three week trip to Thailand. Every little detail was well planned, including the best hotels, guides, drivers conveniences, adventure, etc., all at a reasonable cost. We had a a fabulous experience and we would not hesitate to have Tom do travel planning for us in the future.” – Nancy & Jeff, Ashland, OR
