I fell in love with travel when I was 12 years old and spent a month on the island of Sardinia. We walked to the beach, ate freshly-baked bread daily from the local bakery. snorkeled in the Mediterranean and roasted a pig on a spit. It was a magical summer, something out of a Wes Anderson film, and I was hooked. Since then I've visited more that 30 countries and territories on 6 continents. Travel is truly my passion.
For many years I worked in the entertainment industry in a variety of roles including publicity, production and marketing for companies like The Hollywood Reporter and 20th Century Fox. Each position required creativity, grace under pressure and an unfailing attention to detail... skills I now use in planning travel.
Today I have the great privilege of sharing my passion for journeys, romantic voyages and family adventures with my clients. With personalized planning, first-hand knowledge of destinations around the world, insider access and genuine enthusiasm, I hope to help create magical experiences and memories for globetrotters, sightseers, wanderers, jet-setters and explorers for many years to come.
