Professional Experience

I am a well-published journalist specializing in luxury travel. My design background and writing experience allows me to write with a distinctive, engaging voice that successfully captures and retains that often elusive demographic of 'ultra high net worth' individuals. As well, my photography allowed me to illustrate the pieces I write beautifully.
