- culinary experiences,
- boutique travel
Addicted to novel cultural experiences. California-based, digital nomad who likes to travel by being embedded within an environment and community.
SAN for ease and bliss, LAX for across the world.
My travel style
I love to embed myself within a community or environment. I prefer longer vacations so that I can get a localized and insider perspective on boutique and novel travel experiences. I prefer charm over luxury and value authentic, heard-it-through-the-grapevine tips.
La Valencia Hotel
A longtime La Jolla favorite, unmissable in bright pink, with an Old Hollywood vibe and oceanfront pool made for lounging.
On The Rocks Santorini
Effortless romance and luxury lodging meet at this whitewashed Santorini stay with Caldera views.
Idyllic designer digs above Elia Beach, with a poolside restaurant, oversized suites and unmatched Aegean Sea views.
Recently returned from:
Island hopping in Greece.
Caravaggio hunting in Rome.
Art gallery touring in LA.
Searching for the perfect taco in California.
Horseback riding in Argentine Wine Country.
Boat tour on the Nile.
Sushi tasting in Japan.
Camel ride in Morocco.
One thing I can't travel without...
My notebook of recommendations!
Two truths, one lie:
I filmed a horror movie in a haunted castle in Germany.
My five day trip to Rome turned into a month-long exploration of art and food.
I went to Mexico to learn underwater basket-weaving.
