Travel style

Former digital strategist who spent over a decade in the luxury travel industry. I've been to 35 countries and traveled extensively around North America. Recent favorite trips include Norway on a three-week honeymoon roadtripping in the Lofoten Islands, a South Africa vacation to Cape Town followed by safari in Kruger National Park and a babymoon to Carmel and Big Sur, California. My sweet spot is the high low combo of off-the-beaten-path discovery paired with laid back luxury. I love destinations featuring nature and the great outdoors, discovering smaller boutique hotels with a strong sense of place, exploring local neighborhoods and leaving ample room in trip itineraries for organic discovery. I have two young kids and now focus on thoughtfully planned family adventures to cool places like Mexico, Lake Tahoe, Moab and the Pacific Northwest.
