What makes you interesting: I’m a Creative Director/Event Planner/ Travel Writer/Humanitarian from the South who wandered into Brooklyn and is never moving back! I also have a popcorn obsession.
What do you enjoy doing the most during your travels: Food! I love to eat, so whatever is on the menu during my trips is top priority!
How has travel changed you or how do you hope it will change you: Travel has made me much more empathetic with people abroad who suffer from poverty. That’s why I started a nonprofit called Purpose Driven Passports to find ways to help people in need while on vacation.
What’s your favorite passport stamp and why: Zambia. I jumped off the Victoria Falls Bridge, which is the biggest bridge in the world. It was the single best experience I’ve ever had while traveling and I was in the country for less than 48 hours.
What is your most favorite travel memory: Jumping off the Victoria Falls Bridge, and flying over it in a helicopter the day before. An indescribable rush of adrenaline that did not wear off for hours!
