My travel style

I've traveled on a budget during my college days and now am more selective about the smaller, intimate boutique hotels I travel to. I like to do an adventure a day followed by time where I feel like I can truly relax – a nice cocktail in hand with the hardest question being: pool or beach? My goal is to make my clients feel at home in any destination they travel to. Traveling as a queer individual internationally, it is so important to me that both my girlfriend and I feel welcome and safe, so I want others to feel the same.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Riding horses, eating, relaxing in the jacuzzi and shopping at flea markets in Woodstock, NY. 

  • Partying and poolside relaxing in South Beach, Miami. 

  • Learning how to hold the dancer pose in a yoga studio on the beach of Tulum, Mexico. 

  • Gazing at the stars while at the Griffith Observatory atop Los Angeles.

Dreaming of:

  • Bali. 

  • Portofino and Bari, Italy. 

  • Catching a glimpse of the Great Barrier Reef in Sydney, Australia. 

  • Museum hopping in Washington, DC.

One thing I can't travel without...

My Nikon camera.

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I once fell out of a gondola during a boat ride in Venice, Italy. 

  2. I've been to over 12 countries. 

  3. My dog has traveled with me before.
