About

A modern and curious traveler always searching for bespoke unique stays in unknown destinations. I am a full-time boutique hotel junkie always exploring and passionate about learning new cultures.

Home airports

JFK and LAX – bicoastal living.

My travel style

Having spent the last 10 years in hotel management, I come from a background in hospitality with an affinity for exploring all corners of the world. I have an undeniable passion for bespoke travel; a love for uncovering authentic experiences through the lens of local vanguards and connecting travelers to fascinating people and places.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Road trip through the wilderness of the pacific to midwest regions of North America.

  • Eating all the tacos through the hidden gems of Mexico.

  • Culture escape to the Middle East.

  • Soul Searching on the Mediterranean coast.

Dreaming of:

  • Midnight escape to the northern lights of Iceland.

  • Showcasing my Bollywood debut in India.

  • Living la vida Loca in Latin America.

  • Hiking the Great Wall of China.

What’s one thing you can’t travel without?

A camera! Whether it’s just the one on my phone, or a digital SLR, I like to document every little detail. Reliving my travels through photos of the food, landmarks, locals and candids of my travel companions makes the memories endure and the experiences timeless.

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I left my US passport in the restroom of JFK on NYE.

  2. I speak a language at home that is nearly extinct.

  3. I have swam with sharks.
