Food & Travel Writing

Barcelona, 2016

Barcelona, 2016

My career as a travel writer began while working as a digital marketer for travel startups back in 2008. Since then, I've traveled alone to four countries, partnered with travel brands and publications on destination marketing and influenced friends to book vacations at the same places. Ask me about my yearly sabbaticals, favorite airfare deals, off-season day trips to small towns, must-have travel essentials or what chefs I'm currently obsessing over.
