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 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?

Can you bring a snowboard to the Moon?

What was your first travel job?

Marketing Assistant for a Travel Marketing Agency
