Our mantra is travel well, eat well, and live well.
A world traveler with a curiosity that’s never fully sated, I’m also a lawyer, writer, humanitarian, technologist, global citizen, sommelier-to-be, and sustainability advocate. I’m always in search of all things fabulous, whether it’s a new culinary experience, a historical luxury hotel, a social enterprise that gives back, or a cultural gem.
Originally from Southern California, I’ve been fortunate enough to have lived, studied, worked, and volunteered around the world—Paris, Los Angeles, Orange County, New Delhi, London, San Diego, Seattle, Berlin, with briefer stints in Marburg, Mussoorie, and Reykjavik—and traveled to 50+ others.
When I travel, I seek both luxury and local culture. With a travel style that is ½ iconic + ½ off-the-beaten path, every travel experience of mine is fueled by my passion for the finer things in life, my adventurous spirit, my social awareness, and my craving to understand the disparate cultural fibers that make up our world. So while you might find me at the most luxurious suite at Four Seasons Hotel George V in Paris or Michelin-starred Alinea in Chicago, you will also find me on a safari through Uganda or teaching English in the slums of New Delhi. To me, luxury is the ability to feed your needs in their entirety, whether physical, intellectual, or emotional.
