Whet Travel
I own a couple of travel companies focused on creating unforgettable experiences that connect communities to their passions in new and exciting ways. Under the Whet Travel umbrella, we specialize in chartering cruise ships for large scale music and themed experiences (2000+ people) on the major cruise lines such as Norwegian, Carnival, Princess, Royal Caribbean, MSC & Celebrity.

The Groove Cruise is all about Electronic Dance Music & is the World's Largest Floating Dance Music Festival and the only music charter that sails yearly from both coasts LA & MIA. Shiprocked is the Ultimate Rock Music Cruise Vacation, MotorBoat w/Motorhead + Friends, Inception Cruise the World's 1st Spring Break Charter, Salsa Cruise, is A Ship Full of Pura Salsa & Zen Cruise is a Transformation at Sea. Cruise Event GPS specializes in corporate events & incentives on cruise ships. Whet Foundation offers exciting experiences & programs to deserving children in S FL, the Caribbean & Mexico through our Community Captains & Destination Donation programs.

I'm the youngest person to single handedly charter a cruise ship and we now have 7 charters & send over 15,000 people on cruises each year.

I've been a featured speaker at several events and sit or have sat on several industry boards. I created the Tourism + Hospitality Council and the Emerging Leadership Council at the Miami Beach Chamber.
