My Story
Originally graduating with a degree in apparel merchandising, I worked my way to the top of a small company in the luxury e-commerce market over the course of several years. I planned a trip to the Cook Islands with Down Under Endeavours and developed a great relationship with Shannon. I have enjoyed coming to the Down Under Endeavours/Africa Endeavours office and planning holidays for my clients for the last 3 years.

My Style of Travel
While I make a point to see all the highlights, I particularly enjoy getting off the beaten path. I have stayed in 5-star lodges and with local tribes that don’t speak English in traditional homes. I try to connect with the locals and always try all the local food. Having a mix of experiences is important to me.

Favorite Destinations
Lower Zambezi, Zambia: There is no other way to describe this area but to say, This. Is. Africa. This is the remote wilderness you imagine, where animals are in charge and you realize how large and diverse the world is.
Franschhoek, South Africa: Stunning winelands, amazing champagne and pinotage, luxurious Dutch heritage history, and incredible accommodation. What more could you want?

When I’m Not Traveling, I…
Enjoy exploring my city, trying new restaurants, and meeting new people. A good book, wine, and exercise are also on the agenda.
