About me

I believe travel is the only thing you can buy that makes you richer. I've spent more than 10 years in the travel industry and love it more every day! I’m an avid globetrotter and my travels have led me to visit 50+ countries and counting. I live in Austin, TX between trips and love coming home to my adorable puppy named Lexie.

I began my career in the travel industry in 2007, I’ve held numerous executive level business development & media sales positions with different online travel companies over the years. I’ve worked with client partners in every sector of the travel business and have a deep understanding of the industry. Former clients include airlines, cruise lines, destination marketing organizations, tour operators, travel agents, as well as hotel & resorts. My favorite part about the travel industry is all the awesome people I work with. I'd love to meet you, reach out and say hello.
