About Me:
I'm the writer, producer and host of The Design Tourist, a blog and streaming video that explores destinations with a design story to tell and I am the Design and Travel Editor for the national lifestyle magazine, LaPalme. As a Design Tourist and Travel Writer, I believe that every destination has a story to tell through its local art, architecture, culture and craft. This immersive creative exploration begins with authentic accommodations where the narrative of place unfolds through art, accessories, accouterments, furnishings, fixtures and food. I write about boutique hotels and authentic accommodations that connect travelers with culture and creativity and unique experiences that ignite the creative muse from within through travel. I have written and reported extensively on travel in video, TV and print. My work includes a series of forty videos for the Mexican Caribbean cruise industry, various vacation feature articles for travel magazines, vacation websites, and guidebook contributions. I have lived and worked in Mexico and Florida as a freelance travel writer and video producer.
