Cultural experiences rooted in food and drink, and the occasional luxury thrown in. SF-based, doing life with my wife and dog. A little type-A goes a long way.
Thoughtful planning meets spontaneity – I have a deep love for google spreadsheets but also believe in leaving room to explore. I’m drawn to comfortable and beautifully designed hotels, unique food and drink and lived-in cultural experiences.

Marissa's travel photos
I can't recommend Marissa enough - she was the BEST! She was extremely helpful and thorough in her recommendations when helping us book our honeymoon. She offered up multiple options at varying price ranges and really took the time needed to understand what we were hoping for and what would work best in terms of our end-to-end honeymoon planning. Every place that we booked with Marissa was beyond amazing, and she sent personal touches like special gifts and notes throughout our trip that meant a lot to us. It was the best trip of our lives, and we have Marissa to thank!!

Marissa was SO helpful!! She provided us multiple hotel options and rates based on our preferences. She even went above and beyond to coordinate with the hotel to have a welcome gift and upgrade our room. 10/10 recommend!!

Marissa was amazing. Literally took the most barebones inputs and gave us so much optionality to discuss but in a way that was clear and not overwhelming.
This was our first vacation as a family so we were apprehensive and frankly didn’t know how it would pan out but she did a fantastic job. Made sure to ask for things that we didn’t even think of (like a car seat for the airport transfer and crib for the room…whoops).
We will be seeking Marissa’s input on every major vacay from now on. She’s our travel guru.
