About me

As a traveler (41 countries and counting!), I have witnessed first-hand the negative impacts of mass-tourism. In March 2018, I launched ecomadic LTD — a trustworthy sustainable travel bookings & reviews platform. The site is set to re-launch 2020.

I thrive in international environments, and over time have acquired exceptional cross-cultural adaptability skills through my experience living, working and/or studying in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Singapore, and Hong Kong for extended periods of time. In preparation for the ecomadic launch, my team and I are undergoing the George Washington University Summer Startup Accelerator. Where I am also completing a Master of Tourism Administration focusing on Sustainable Tourism with a graduate certificate in International Science and Technology Policy.

When I am not working, studying, or traveling, you can usually find me in the yoga studio or whipping up a tasty vegan meal in the kitchen.
