Tips on how to take a nap on a plane? Lean against the window.
What’s your favorite airline and hotel? Airline: JetBlue / Hotel: So many to choose from but Loews is consistently a great experience.

Do you believe you don’t know someone untill you’ve traveled with them? Absolutely – how much they pack, what they wear on the plane, how they snack, what they read or watch, arrive early or late, Uber or cab, restaurant or room service … I’ve said too much.
What is your travel horror story? A weather delay traveling back from Salt Lake City caused me to miss my connection in Atlanta to Jacksonville … where I left my car. At midnight, I rented a car in Atlanta to drive 4 hours home to Tallahassee for an important morning meeting. Then, after my meeting I drove 5 hours round trip to get my car in Jacksonville.
Favorite destination and why? Salt Lake City, Utah – Nothing better than an escape into the mountains with my brother and friends.
