Vacationist, mom of two, constant tourist with an appetite for adventure. Part-time travel writer, full-time trip curator living the southern California dream in Malibu.
I love a unique adventure; I always keep a pulse on the destinations that go beyond Top 10 lists. I live for unique hotels and amazing hospitality, and I’m a firm believer that a good hotel should offer the ultimate experience in hospitality: a fine balance between feeling at home and like a treasured guest. I’m all about balance, and I pace my trips consciously and intentionally to balance research and serendipitous experiences. It’s not all about luxury nor is it all low brow – but I never say no to a meal at a busy street stand or night market, or the opportunity to hang with the locals.
