Genuine human interactions and experiences which develop my understanding of people and places are what capture my heart as a traveler. I am amazed by the world we live in every day. I view traveling as a way of learning about the world and yourself. As a travel success specialist, I want to help people connect culturally and experience nature in a positive way.
There are two sides to me as a traveler...One part of me longs to explore tropical islands' hidden beaches by boat, and the other side wants to be a solo adventurer. I really enjoy traveling on my own to cities. I have recently visited Budapest, Berlin, Nice, Milan, and London.

How did you get involved in travel?
"My family has always inspired and encouraged me to travel! My father told stories of traveling across Europe on a motorcycle in his early 20's. My grandmother showed me photos and videos from her trips to the great barrier reef in Australia and also Fiji. They made me fall in love with parts of the world which I had never visited. Then, I studied international tourism at university learning about the travel industry from many perspectives. I developed a passion for learning about different destinations, cultures, and people, and so in 2014, I moved to the Caribbean. Since then I have returned to Europe to continue traveling, working and learning new languages. "
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"Learning to paddleboard and windsurf in the Caribbean sea off the coast of Saint Lucia with my best friends!"
