My travel style

Researched and aspirational traveler. I always make a big list of things to check out – especially food! – and map them out to explore the most and maximize the trip. I like to get recommendations from locals so that I can authentically feel the beat of the place I am visiting.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Traversing Oahu on a birthday vacation, complete with a starry North Shore night with friends and wine! 

  • Enjoying fireside romance in the snow dusted ski resort of Sundance in Utah.

  • Relaxing on a sunny, secret hideaway staycation in LA. 

  • Adventuring offbeat in a hotel complete with skate park in Salt Lake City, UT.

Dreaming of:

  • All over Italy – Venice and Florence namely. 

  • Tulum for something Nu. 

  • I will go to Mykonos. With a vision of a gentle coast. 

  • Onsen tour in Japan.

One thing I can't travel without...

My camera.

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I organized full-service travel for a film crew of 20+ for two weeks all over rural Scotland. 

  2. I lived in the Tokyo area for over a month. 

  3. I was a Junior Mounty (much like Junior Rangers) in Canada as a child.
