My travel style
I worked in the luxury hotel industry for several years and I value the importance of details, great service and authenticity. I prefer to think of myself as a traveler, not a tourist, and really enjoy discovering new places on a more intimate level. Excited to start a career in travel and help others explore the magical world that’s out there.
