We have travelled the world, professionally and personally, for over 20 years. Meticulously researching, designing, and delivering the unique, the exclusive, the wow to Fortune 500 clients and guests (and ourselves). Corporate budgets aside, we know how to seek beauty and find joy in all destinations, at home or abroad, from the magnificent to the modest.

In 2018, we stepped out of the spotlight and away from our San Francisco home to fulfill a promise to a loved one. Promise fulfilled, farewells said, we departed in January 2020 to circumnavigate the globe. To apply Marilee's mantra: "Find your purpose. Follow your passion. Forge your path."

Purpose found. Passion followed. Path forged.

Together let's Explore, Experience, Inspire the journey. Together let's collect moments not things. Together let's seek beauty and find joy wherever you are, near or far.
