About

An avid traveler who’s probably been to where you want to go.


Travel style

I love exploring new places, but I’m also a fan of more traditional vacation destinations. Whether I'm exploring Mongolia or Iceland, hitting the sights in Paris or taking a cruise to the Bahamas, each trip serves its purpose and feeds the soul in its own way with its own flavor. Don't forget about the good food and drinks (especially the globally growing cocktail culture). They are key to enjoying everything a destination has to offer. Perfecting all the little details is a way I make sure a trip is the best that it can be.
