A native of San Francisco & a travel junkie addicted to exploring incredible places & experiences around the globe. I divide my time between Florence, Lisbon & San Francisco & traveling in between.
SFO (San Francisco) FLR (Florence), LIS (Lisbon).
My travel style
I love finding “magic” in each place I go…exploring & discovering things off-the-beaten path as well as finding nice boutique & design hotels, great food (street food to Michelin starred restaurants), local culture & unique experiences.
El Fenn Hotel, Restaurant and Rooftop Bar
Unique boutique accommodation in Marrakech featuring 3 swimming pools, a roof terrace, spa, two cocktail bars — and a family of resident tortoises.
A bottle of wine for one/two nights.
A pair of Babouche slippers each, fruit, flowers, a bottle of wine and macarons for three nights or more.
A tranquil Oltrarno hideaway with an in-the-know vibe, 14 antique-filled rooms and a gorgeous wraparound terrace overlooking Europe’s largest private garden.
Complimentary bottle of wine in room on arrival.
Fruit basket in room on arrival.
Upgrade to next room category whenever possible.
With a gallery space, homewares store and multiple restaurants, Dôce 18 prides itself on being much more than merely a place to rest your head in San Miguel de Allende.
A bottle of Taittinger champagne.
Recently returned from:
Taking a road trip throughout Portugal.

Two truths, one lie:
Traveled the world while working as a personal trainer for a well-known celebrity.
I speak 6 languages fluently.
Had drinks at the KGB headquarters in Moscow (with all the ex-KGB chiefs).
