Waking with the sun's first rays, Jesse, aged seven, climbed Notre-Dame's bell tower with his father. Finally reaching the top of the spiral staircase, he peaked over the gargoyles for his first view of the Parisian skyline. Since then, Jesse has explored the world as a traveler, a volunteer, a student, and a professional.
In university, Jesse spent a semester studying comparative international justice systems in Budapest, Hungary. He followed this with a semester in France, fulfilling his childhood dream, learning the French language and immersing himself in French culture.
Having only teased his appetite for travel, over the next four years Jesse headed from volunteering in Cameroon to teaching in Thailand to founding an international education consulting company and an ESL school in China.
Now, having traveled to over 35 countries, Jesse is back in Boston and loves creating bespoke trips to where his passion for travel started: France.

I'll never forget when…
Throughout all my travels, one of the most memorable experiences I've ever had is visiting the D-Day beaches in Normandy. At both Utah and Omaha beaches I stood in silent awe. With the help of the explanations from my guide and the museum exhibitions I'd seen the day before, I was given an intense insight into the fear and courage of the soldiers who stormed these beaches. At the end of the day my guide accompanied me to the American Cemetery where I walked through a seemingly endless field of white crosses.
