Let's connect on LinkedIn:

Why did you join the community?

The community has been an eye-opener of what the travel industry can be all about – open, collaborative, sharing, and caring about the future of travel. I've attended several Travel Massive events in Europe before joining the team 5 years ago. I've met incredible professionals, worked on amazing tourism projects, and have been able to learn every step of the way.

What is your favorite travel destination?

A nice mountain where I can snowboard and a nice beach where I can surf. I've recently really enjoyed Greece for its hospitality, great food, quality life, and adventure and outdoor sports opportunities.

Where do you dream of traveling to?

Will spend 2-3 months in Japan in winter 2024 - snowboarding and exploring.

What was your first travel job?

Marketing Assistant for a Travel Marketing Agency

What do you want to learn more about?

Travel Trends, Innovations, Startups, Sustainable Projects

Three words that describe why we should travel?

Explore, learn, grow
