About Me:
Originally a Bostonian, I am based in New York City and while I write frequently about my city and the world for a variety of outlets, I write about all aspects of travel, focusing on luxury, adventure, theater and food. Spas, activities, cultural attractions, hotels, restaurants, historic sites, architecture and destinations are all of interest. I love discovering the unusual and will also write about great tours and packages appropriate for special-interest travelers (family, couples, off-season). I write for (Stuff to Do/Meryls Picks),, Splash Magazines, Where New York, IN New York, City Guide, Travel and Food Notes, Travel Supermarket and other outlets. Because I speak a number of foreign languages, I am able to delve into a countrys culture, converse with locals, and pull out what is intrinsically interesting about a location. Previous outlets have included GQ, Fodors,, Boston Herald, New York Magazine, Crains 5boros, The Daily Meal, Boomer Magazine, Northshore Magazine, Travel Squire, New York Family, and Fortune Small Business. I have a BA in foreign languages from Brown University, and an MBA in Marketing from Wharton Graduate School with additional Communications Studies work at the Annenberg School of Communications. I live with my husband James Wacht in Manhattan, and my two sons also live in Manhattan.
