About

A Charleston-based travel lover who books the next two trips before boarding the flight.

"Life is like a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death." - Mame


Travel style

I prefer to experience less mainstream but special accommodations from homes to boutique hotels and aparthotels, for family travel. I believe in making a trip, no matter the destination, memorable and unqiue whether you are in a cliffside tiny house or a penthouse in the heart of Rome. I also love finding really exceptional experiences like hosting a private local chef or a behind the scenes tour. I also don't miss the memorable once in a lifetime travel opportunities like the big golf tournament, the sailing race or the once-in-a-lifetime concert. Every trip is an opportunity to connect with people, culture and adventure!
