About

I took my first flight when I was 2 weeks old. Since then I’ve used travel as medicine. Otherwise, I’m usually under synthetic lighting for 80 hours a week as an NYC-based surgeon.

Home airports

LGA if staying in the country. JFK if I need my passport.

My travel style

I spend months trying to plan out the perfect restaurant, perfect beach club and the rooftop bar that everyone says you have to check out. And then I come to a startling realization that everyone travels differently. For me, it’s not the crazy rooftop bar, but the family-owned, elegant café where everyone treats you like a friend. I’m a sucker for hotel amenities, but I avoid the big names in search of smaller, more personable properties.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Taking a road trip through South of France.

  • Enjoying a Croatian coast boat tour.

  • Visiting islands around the Balearic Islands.

  • Doing a Mexico City Mezcal hunt.

Dreaming of:

  • Tokyo fish markets.

  • Jaipur palaces.

  • Rwanda to see the gorillas.

  • A week of fruits in Ubud.

One thing I can't travel without...

Safe answer…wired headphones. But actually Benadryl.

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I got stopped by cops in Morocco.

  2. I got on the wrong budget airline.

  3. I slept in the Amanjena royal villa.
