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 childhood dream eventually lead me to pursue a career in hospitality.   A travel journalism gig blossomed into a whirlwind adventure of traveling and residing abroad to recognize the best luxury hotels and restaurants with The Five Star Diamond Award.

I worked in hotel management at The Carlyle, one of NYC’s premier hotels, to learn about world class luxury hospitality.

After a year and a half there, I traveled throughout South America.  Then the Star Diamond Award relocated me to China.  Over the following decade I evaluated over 5,000 of the world’s best fine dining, hotels, spas, airlines, cruise ships and other luxury lifestyle experiences to qualify them for the highest International ratings and standards worldwide – The Five Star Diamond Award.

Thru the years I contributed travel content and commentary throughout international media outlets, participated as a Cultural Commentator for CCTV in China, spoke at events, conducted seminars and consulted various hotels and restaurants worldwide.

During this outward journey of luxury hospitality ventures, I also embarked on an inward journey to know myself.  While I had always found interest in personal self transformation, the extravagant trips mixed with the variety of foreign cultures I encountered gave me the perfect backdrop to blossom in my self discovery.  I am still on these parallel travels and as I evolve and grow more personally and professionally and I hope to seamlessly blend them and share that journey with you here.
