Miami, Florida

Aisle or Window

Both! It depends on what mood I’m in and what I’m travelling for. Aisle for business, window for pleasure.

Hidden Gem

North Beach presents a calmer side of Miami’s urban beach attractions and includes a wonderful variety of international cuisine.

Ideal Sunday

Enjoying a cup of homemade cold brewed coffee, while enjoying family time and the NFL on TV in the background.

Enthusiasm and flip-flops.

You Must Know

If you’re coming to Charleston, you must see the view of the city from Fort Sumter. It is both beautiful and thought provoking given the rich history of the area.

Bucket List

Argentinal and New Zealand

My Role

Trying to put myself in the perspective of the guest. I get very excited thinking about the experience they are about to have.
