Design hotel and hands-on food experience obsessed, I'm a food and wellness travel expert helping clients see the world through a sustainable lens.
You can find me capturing the world through my video lens telling unique stories of the people in the places I explore. I always plan my trips around food first with soft adventure and shopping handmade/made in the destination a close second. I always pack an extra bag to bring home my treasures from afar. Never met a stranger and always come home from my travels with new friends.
