My Background

Chicago-based Wanderer and Adventure Specialist

Dreaming of a hot air balloon ride over Cappadocia? Want to take in the gorgeous Hanalei Bay at the luxurious St. Regis Princeville? Is going on a safari in Zambia, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Tanzania, Botswana or South Africa on your bucket list? These are just a few of the amazing experiences I’ve had and would love to help plan for you.

A consultant by trade, I’ve had roles all over the US (Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, Milwaukee, Los Angeles), and have also lived in Sydney, Australia and Lilongwe, Malawi. In addition to extensive travel for work I have been to over 50 countries exploring the best restaurants, experiences and hotels.

Now I’m excited to be working with the award-winning boutique leisure travel agency Q Cruise + Travel.

What I love in travel?

  • Adventure travel: Exploring nature and all that it has to offer from a boat through the fjords in Norway to bungee jumping in New Zealand.
  • Food & Wine: A good meal makes any trip that much better.
  • Africa and Australia: I have lived in both Sydney and Lilongwe.
  • Great hotels and fabulous resorts: As a consultant I know the importance of comfort and luxury while away from home.
