More about Jim

I was born in Cartagena, Colombia. From the time I was a little boy, my family was a travelling family. My father was in the Colombian Navy and as a result, we had to locate from one location to another constantly. From Colombia to different locations in the United States, back to Colombia. After retiring from the Navy, my father took a position with a British Company and we moved to Cuba.

After we left Cuba in 1960, our family moved to Key Biscayne, Florida. By then I was in my teens and I had been in countless number of schools. From that experience I did learn to appreciate the various types of people and their backgrounds. I took a part time job while in high school in a travel agency that had just opened in Key Biscayne and that was the beginning of a new world for me. After I completed college and my service in the US Navy Submarine Service I went back to the travel agency and began my long career as a Travel Consultant.

One of my very first “fam” trips was to Africa in the mid 70’s and that opened up to me a love for Africa and everything associated with animals! I have been a believer that once you visit Africa, the experience stays with you always! And that’s the way it’s been for me. I have travelled to Africa countless of times and visited numerous countries in the Continent. One trip is better than the next, and I never get tired of seeing the beauty of Africa and its people.

I have specialized in sending family groups to Africa in the last few years and been so fortunate to have the fabulous assistance and expert guidance of &Beyond and its professional staff through Africa. Now they have expanded to new destinations in South America, India and Bhutan, adding to their collection
Of places to go to.
