What is your role at Sutton & Associates:  President & Owner of Sutton & Associates team. I have the pleasure of working with an incredibly talented and creative team fueled by passion and expertise for creating extraordinary experiences.

Best travel experience:   One of my greatest travel experiences was shopping in a local Kyoto market with a Japanese chef, learning how to select fresh fish and delicacies, biking to his boutique restaurant, donning an apron and learning how to prepare and enjoy Japanese cuisine and sushi.
