About

City explorer, outdoor adventurer, experience (and passport stamp) collector based out of Los Angeles. I love learning about diverse cultures and histories, wandering through neighborhoods looking for mouthwatering street food and trekking up mountains for beautiful vistas. Favorite travel destination is usually the last place I've been. 

Home airports

LAX.

My travel style

I'm all about balance – between adventure and off-the-beaten-path activities and city highlights, intense trip planning and leaving things to serendipity, street food stalls and tasting menus, and action and relaxation. 

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Experiencing mezcal, mole, magical crafts and Indigenous cultures in Oaxaca.

  • Wine tasting in Baja's Valle de Guadalupe.

  • Hiking and stargazing in Mammoth Lakes.

  • Chasing waterfalls and volcanoes in Iceland.

Dreaming of:

  • Seeing the gorillas up close in Rwanda.

  • Visiting an ethical elephant sanctuary in Thailand.

  • Traveling the Silk Road through Samarkand.

  • Hiking the Tour de Mont Blanc while indulging in alpine cheese, wine and chocolate.

One thing I can't travel without...

  A shawl that can double as a light jacket, blanket, pillow or even a towel in a pinch. 

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I've been to a nightclub in a bat cave in Cuba.

  2. I got stung by a jellyfish while snorkeling off the Florida Keys.

  3. I've stayed in palaces meant for princes and princesses in India.
