- Luxury Travel,
I am a room service lover and the best daddy to my two little dogs – Chloe and Coco. New York City native of 20 years now. A native to Brooklyn but still always have Manhattan on my mind.
JFK is my international, LaGuardia is my domestic and EWR is my last resort.
My travel style
Once a best-bang-for-your-buck traveler, but now, I am a luxe traveler who loves to curate the entire vacation to the finest detail. I am usually the one who will go from relaxing with a fine wine to painting the town red. My trips are all about luxury and balance.

One thing I can't travel without...
Noise canceling headphones.
Two truths, one lie:
I once got to lay on the beach next to Mr. Big from Sex and the City and have drinks when I stayed at The Bentley South Beach.
I went snorkeling on Voodoo Island in Honduras and had to be pulled back on the boat because I started hyperventilating in the water as I have never snorkeled before.
I was on a Western Caribbean cruise and was left behind at one of the ports because I lost track of time.
