Bavarian Beer Vacations Logo

I adore Bavaria!

This paradise has been my home for the past twenty two years. The beauty, history, culture, and people have captured my heart, and I love sharing this stunning land with newcomers. For over seven years, I have been a tour guide and small business owner, exposing travelers to my favorite sights, cities, festivals, and breweries. Yet, I am more than your run-of-the-mill tour guide: I am a storyteller, historian, snowboarder, skier, beer connoisseur, and friend. I strive to create the perfect vacation for all of my clients, and it would be my absolute pleasure to showcase Bavaria’s majesty to you!

Originally from the city of Lafayette Louisiana he went on to attend Oglethorpe University in Atlanta Georgia where he studied History and Philosophy with an emphasis on Western Civilization. After university he decided to travel before starting his career in the fast food industry and as the saying goes “He got stuck” in Europe. Eventually he settled in Bavaria and has been there for over eighteen years. He opened all things garmisch in 2010. His business model being to help English speaking travelers with day tours, team building programs, company retreats, and more.
