An Insider Guide to the Outside World
I’ve been a genuine traveler who has lived inside the outside world before the hip “Insider” term even existed. I’ve done the time in the field as an authentic agent of the industry and like many frequent-traveler programs out there, I’ve earned my wings. I’ve been pinned with the personal achievement of being an authentic Travelcrafter of around-the-world intuitively crafted epic journeys. I invite you to take an intimate journey with me, as I share my personal travel experiences, most memorable moments and professional tips acquired as a Certified Travel Specialist and creative content writer for over 20 years. Throughout my blogsite, I will help define your unique travelstyle, inspire you through a dreamy book of enchanting places, lure you into the most wanted experiences including what’s trending now, tempt you to taste the globe’s culinary cravings, play cupid by joining you with blissful perfect paradises, and let you escape into the great wide open to remote off-grid chic locales. In addition, I wish to welcome you inside the music homeplace that beats one with my own heart, by opening the front door into its charming Southern traditions, stylish etiquettes, laid-back lifestyles and talented people that continue to make it legendary.
Having been born into a bohemian gypsetting way of life to parents who were global nomads, I guess you could say it was my destiny to get into the travel industry. Since early childhood, I’ve been acquiring a collection of passport stamps while accruing the uncountable worldwide miles by plane, train, automobile and foot, which led to my priceless travel inheritance. My journey’s paths have taken me throughout Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Central & South America, the Caribbean and Mexico, incorporating over 65 countries which have given me an appreciation and respect for foreign customs and traditions. I’ve been graced to have experienced many diverse cultures of people with whom I’ve encountered around the globe who have deeply impacted my life. Being immersed within their unique lifestyles, communities, beliefs and practices, I’ve been gifted with a bounty of cherished experiences by the immense beauty for the places and the people of our world. One of those magical places is Nashville. It is filled with an incredible community of people who creatively collaborate together, building the city into the stylish scene everyone wants to come be seen in. From Music Row to the West Coast, through charming suburbs, rural countrysides and big cities across the nation, I have built a sound reputation in fostering relationships through tailoring memorable travel experiences for celebrities, hit music makers, Fortune 500 CEOs, precious families, loving couples and beautiful simple people. No matter what walk of life they lived, each sought to escape for a while into their own book of dreams for a desired purpose found within their personal travel styles.
Apart from crafting journeys, my secondary passion lies within the artistic expression of creative writing as a Lifestyle Wordsmith. As a curated freelance writer, I’ve been exposed to an amazing clientele roster of opportunities to write within giving me a reputable repertoire through my tenureship in the field. I’ve been fortunate to write for some of the most prestigious trend-makers in the industry, ranging from designing branded content for nature-travel programs catering to The Nature Conservancy, The Audubon Society and the World Wildlife Foundation; conceiving the marketing collateral and rich content for high-tech Silicon Valley travel showcases and trade shows; and co-branding luxury events through partnering with prominent lifestyle brands within my career at American Express Travel catering to discerning Platinum and Centurion card members, Mitchell Gold+Bob Williams, Porsche Design Boutique, South Coast Plaza Costa Mesa, Assouline Books, Anqi House of An, including premier bridal shows and luxury event venues. Currently, in my little big town, I’m focusing my wordsmithing voice within the Nashville scene by connecting with an admirable portfolio of diverse natives and artisans whom I deeply admire for what they do and how they each contribute to their individual neighborhoods within our local community. I wish to share with you all my many stories of people, places, doings, happenings and celebration-makings.
