After a two-year stint with Woker Freight Services, working in all three of their offices (Swakopmund, Walvis Bay, and Windhoek), Steve moved on to Cape Town, South Africa, where he started a long, though interrupted, career with the local affiliate of American Express(tm) Travel. He worked for them for about a year and half before joining Safleisure, a division of Safmarine, with their latest venture into the world of cruising. For 18 months, he worked onboard the cruise ship Astor, starting as a waiter in the late night bar, but climbing to the third Purser in charge of the shore excursions office, front office, and onboard accounting system.
He returned to South Africa and resumed his career with American Express Travel, where he worked in both leisure and corporate travel in Johannesburg, running the in-house corporate travel offices for Gencor, one of the largest mining houses in South Africa. During his time in Cape Town, he was honored by winning the American Express Great Performers Award, a worldwide award honoring American Express employees who went above and beyond the call of duty to assist their clients.
He left American Express Travel to join a small agency, Travel Creations, where he assisted clients in both leisure and corporate travel. In 1996 he was offered a position as agent with Gracy Travel International, Inc., and in December of 1996, took the huge step of moving to the United States. He worked for Gracy Travel International, Inc. until March of 2009, helping to build Gracy Travel International, Inc. into one of the leading niche agencies specializing in travel for sporting hunters with firearms.
On April 1, 2009, Steve made another career move, opening Travel With Guns.com, a subsidiary of Total Travel Solutions, Inc., with the intent of offering professional travel arrangements with personalized service. During his years of working in the industry, Steve has traveled to many exciting places in the world, and with this knowledge and experience in the field, you are assured of excellent service.
