When I am not wine tasting or eating chocolate, I'm looking for the best places to wander. I am a Bay Area native, looking forward to a life abroad.

Home airports

SJC is my home base but SFO works too.

My travel style

It's been said that, 'fond memories are made when gathered round the table', and I firmly believe that. I am a culinary tourist and create memories with family and friends by exploring culture through cuisine. I enjoy immersive experiences that allow you to learn, understand and respect the traditions of your destination.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Driving the dunes in White Sands National Park, New Mexico.

  • Exploring the winding roads of Shenandoah Valley Wine Trail.

  • Tasting crabs and cocktails on a day trip to Sausalito.

  • Falling for Snoqualmie Falls in Washington State.

Dreaming of:

  • Barcelona.

  • Tuscany.

  • Brazil.

One thing I can't travel without...


Two truths, one lie:

  1. I paid $300 for sunscreen in Cabo.

  2. I got stranded on a cruise ship due to bad weather that forced us to reroute to another island for five days. 

  3. I sang at a piano bar during Mardi Gras in New Orleans.
