Travels with Tesa, an independent affiliate of Tafari Travel
New York, NY United States

I was born in the Philippines and immigrated at age 21 to New York City, where I worked as a travel agent before launching a career as a fashion executive. Even then, I was always in charge of planning travel for family and friends. They trusted my taste, enthusiasm, and attention to detail. While planning yet another trip, I thought, “I can do this every day of my life. This is what I was meant to do.” With that realization, I decided to pivot and pursue my passion for travel.

My expertise is in designing thoughtful journeys that lead to transformative experiences. I focus on independent travel, boutique hotels, history, art, and particularly enjoy seeking out fantastic local restaurants and artisans whose skills have been passed down through generations.
