About me:

travel blogger

I work with tourism boards, brands and hotels on travel stories, social media, reviews and sponsored posts.

I have more than a decade of journalism experience and my writing focuses on storytelling, real-life anecdotes and vivid descriptions.

My love of storytelling inspired me to get an English Literature degree from UC Berkeley. And I have a passion for blogging, writing and videography.

My reviews are always honest and I only work with brands that are a great fit.
