I have a passion for radical hospitality, genuinely being helpful and making people feel welcome. Midwest-based, part-time living in Oaxaca, Mexico, where I feel at home surrounded by nature.
KCI from May to November. HUX from December to April.
My travel style
I travel to grow. As an entrepreneur, I'll go to spaces surrounded by nature to be my most creative self. I find joy in knowing that one bite of food can change the way my brain sees everything. And, there is nothing like storytime and Mezcal with the new friends I meet along the way.
Cap Rocat Mallorca
Romantic former fortress overlooking the Bay of Palma – no kids allowed.
Luxury treehouse property surrounded by jungle with Mexican-craft inspired settings.
The Goodtime Hotel
Luxe art deco property with upscale, chic rooms and suites offering views of the Atlantic Ocean.

One thing I can't travel without...
Two truths, one lie:
My wife and I eloped in the South of France at a chateau built by Napoleon.
I've been lost in the Sierra Sur, only to find a Shaman that would be my guide out.
I discovered a cenote outside of Merida, leading archaeologist's to find markings relating the Maya to Atlantis.
