A neosomaniac, I'm mad about islands!

How could I not be? For many years it was the best part of my job – seaplaning to remote villages, drinking kava with chiefs, crunching numbers and designing marketing plans on sparkling beaches…surfing the best breaks, as I worked all over the South Pacific, brokering personal estates,

boutique hotels, and private islands.
