Tell us about yourself
I am a designer specializing in both interiors and landscape, so when I was first approached for luxury travel, it seemed like a very organic extension of what I was already doing. While I am not designing the places I visit, I am putting the aesthetics into words so that my readers can feel as f they are experiencing it, too.
Can you tell us about your work as a travel writer?
Working as a travel writer has allowed me to indulge my love of travel AND my love of design. By writing about the experiences with a designer’s eye – it gives my readers a much richer sense of the destination.
What is your favorite destination?
I’m very fortunate to have been able to travel to eight countries this year. With each destination being so different, it’s difficult to choose a favorite… but I do have a soft spot for France and Italy!
