About

Old soul living a modern life in Houston’s vibrant Montrose district with my husband and doggo. Born in the wrong time, always traveling to find the history but requiring luxe amenities along the way.

Home airports

IAH or HOU.

My travel style

Minimalist packer, maximalist traveler. I love to mix classic sightseeing with spontaneous fun. You might find me at high tea by day and at a karaoke bar by night. I’ve never met a castle or historic home I didn’t want to move into. I surprise even myself with my love of a guided tour – it’s the best way to get the inside scoop. Will travel for: concerts, soccer matches, white wine and filming locations.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Snorkeling with sea turtles in Amed, Bali. 

  • Sipping bubbly in the UNESCO designated Prosecco Hills of Veneto, Italy. 

  • Drinking biodynamic wines and eating the best cicchetti in Venice at Vino Vero. 

  • Watching the most beautiful sunsets in the world in Oia, Santorini.


Dreaming of:

  • Scotland, always. 

  • Visiting every country house in England to live out my Jane Austen/Downton Abbey/Bridgerton dreams. 

  • Throwing tomatoes at the La Tomatina festival in Bunol, Spain. 

  • Exploring Okinawa, the birthplace of karate, and training with a master Sensei.


One thing I can't travel without...

A shiny new magazine from the airport newsstand.

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I’ve eaten my way around the world as a vegetarian since 2004. 

  2. I love winter sports and have skied at the same resort in Telluride every year since I was nine years old. 

  3. One of my vacation snapshots was featured in a Ken Burns documentary.
