New Yorker living in LA. While I'm obsessed with making discoveries around the world, at home I'm focused on writing, interior design and wellness. I'm a mom to three girls and a boy Cavalier.

My travel style

I travel for beauty – whether a stunning monastery, unique architecture, a gorgeous plate of food or a charming hotel. Discovering the coolest spots in any destination makes my pulse quicken. While I love the city and country equally, I am always looking to explore beyond what I've already seen. I believe passion can be infectious and hope to spread my insane love for discovery to anyone who's ready to explore.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Soaking up the architecture and street art in Lisbon.

  • Glacier hiking and waterfall hunting with the kids in Iceland.

  • Palazzo-touring and eating all the seafood in Sicily.

  • Road-tripping up the magical California coast with the family.

Dreaming of:

  • Kyoto – it's dire.

  • A trip down the Nile.

  • Everywhere in Argentina.

  • Morocco.

  • Tunisia.

One thing I can't travel without...

Master and dynamic noise-canceling headphones.

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I spent a few nights on a mountain in northern Thailand.

  2. I arrived at the airport realizing I left my passport in a Panamanian hotel.

  3. I was mugged outside a restaurant in Guatemala City.
