What makes you interesting: I think the one thing that makes me interesting is how I’ve managed to morph my career path into one of travel. I absolutely love what I do, and I love that it allows me to travel and share my experiences with others. I am also a doer and I love to try new things. I’ve gone shark diving in the Bahamas, cliff jumping in Australia, mountain climbing in Austria, sky diving in Canada, Caving in Cuba and more! I love experiencing adrenaline pumping fun!
What brands do you love: It’s hard to pick just one. I’ve worked with many great brands. I loved working with Cathay Pacific because I got to fly business class to Australia. I have two children so having that alone time in such a luxurious setting was a treat. They had lay flat beds in your own little pod. I got to watch movies (that I picked) and drink Champaign. It was glorious!
What’s your Travanality: I’m definitely a MAVERICK!
What’s your favorite passport stamp: Probably from Cuba. I love that I was able to visit this beautiful country the way it is now. Things will change greatly for Cuba in the next coming years.
What’s one thing you have no problem breaking the bank for when traveling: Anything adventure. When it comes to things, like scuba diving, sky diving, cliff jumping, zip lining, etc., I’m willing to spend money on things that will stay with me forever.
What motivates you to travel: I never want to miss out on living life. When I am old and on my deathbed I want to look back on my life with no regrets. My life is filled with travel, which means it’s filled with cool experiences and memories. I am the happiest and most settled when I am traveling.
What do you enjoy doing the most during your travels: When I am visiting a place I always try to find what is unique about that place and do it. When I visited the Bahamas I saw that you could scuba dive with sharks in the open ocean. I had only been scuba diving a handful of times but this was something I really wanted to do because when would I have the chance to dive with sharks again? I like to seize opportunities when they are in front of me. So I’d say anything that will be adventurous is what I look forward to most when I’m traveling.
If your personality was a city or country, which one would it be: I’d say my personality would be Australia. In Australia you have an amazing amount of variety. From the ocean to the Outback there are so many cool things to see and experience. It’s rugged and outdoorsy and filled with adventure – just like me!
Next travel destination: We’re heading to Vegas soon and then off to the Mayan Riviera
