Made to confuse, my adventures began with nearly being born in transit between Hong Kong and Tokyo to a Swiss-German mother and a New Yorker Punjabi father. I finally decided on a Japanese birth certificate and then lived in the US, Turkey, Spain, Italy, India, UK, and Thailand before becoming a complete nomad and living out of my suitcase for nearly 5 years. Currently I am based in Miami. I have travelled in over 60 countries, always adding new destinations and experiences to my portfolio, and look forward to sharing these wanderings with you!
After studying Sociology and Social Policy at the London School of Economics, with a dream to explore the world in a meaningful and responsible way, my career in hospitality began with the Conrad Bangkok. Subsequently I worked with the opening team of the Aman New Delhi and then held various positions at SUJAN Luxury Hotels, including as Resident Manager of their Relais & Chateaux property, Sher Bagh, in Ranthambhore, India. In this last position of managing a luxury tented camp in a tiger reserve I found a place that had made my dream of meaningful and responsible travel a reality.
After six years in the hospitality industry I have begun a new nomadic adventure, designing such travel experiences, staying true to my dreams. Karvansarai is a boutique travel design company, but even more a passion where I create truly personalised experiences based on first-hand knowledge, filled with character and imagination for the curious and conscious traveller.
Services range from consulting, one off specialised events, planning entire itineraries to guided expeditions. I place a lot of emphasis on people who are involved in unique and interesting activities around the world and are as passionate about their work as I am about mine. Karvansarai travellers appreciate comfort, exceptional cuisine, and the subtle details of outstanding service – all with a bit of adventure and spontaneity. I take the environmental and social impact of travel seriously and seek to be conscious in all that I undertake. Areas of particular interest are wildlife and conservation, wine and gastronomy, wellness, photography and active travels.
