My passion for travel emerged while enrolled at Quinnipiac University, Connecticut. After completing a South African history course, I spent the winter term in South Africa. I managed to see quite a lot of the country while there and my knowledge of South African history enhanced every destination I visited along the way.
Since then, I have returned to Africa three times, visiting South Africa, Zimbabwe and Zambia.
Some of my most cherished African adventures include visiting both the Zimbabwean and Zambian sides of Victoria Falls, self-driving the Garden Route in South Africa, free-diving with sharks in Durban, and spotting the Big Five in Kruger National Park. These thrilling experiences led me towards a career in the travel industry where I'm delighted to be able to share my experiences with others.
Outside of work I love spending time outdoors, cooking and trying new restaurants.

I'll never forget when…
On one of my first safari drives in the Amakhala Private Game Reserve in the Eastern Cape, I was extremely fortunate to see a honey badger. My ranger, Sebastian, who was highly experienced, could barely contain his excitement; he had never seen a honey badger in the wild. The honey badger was being attacked by four lions but incredibly, managed to defend itself and eventually escape. I tell this story whenever I go on safari and the rangers are always astonished, telling me how fortunate I was to have witnessed such event. It's a moment I will never forget.
