E ver since I lived abroad as a teenager, I have always immersed myself in different cultures – living and learning in lands different than my own.
My luxury hospitality career began in 2003 in NYC with a stint in freelance travel writing for a local upscale publication. That opportunity quickly blossomed into a whirl wind adventure of living and adventuring in foreign lands to rate ultra-upscale hotels and fine dining experiences with the prestigious International Five Star Diamond Award for The American Academy of Hospitality Sciences (AAHS).
Then, for over a decade following, The American Academy of Hospitality Sciences slung shot me to all parts of the planet from Asia to South America and everything in between. I lived abroad and traveled extensively worldwide with stars and diamonds. During this time I evaluated over 5,000 of the world’s best fine dining, hotels, spas, airlines, cruise ships and other luxury lifestyle experiences.
