My family moved from the USA to the UK when I was two, and I grew up with a natural curiosity about the United States and an increasing desire to go back and explore. When my family moved back while I was at university, I got the chance to spend my holidays discovering the east coast cities and coastal towns.
Since then, I’ve spent time exploring Australia, Malaysia and Europe, but still try to get to America at least once a year. What I love, is that every state is different, a point driven home on my most recent trip to California, Texas, the Deep South and Florida. Along with enjoying the American passion for sports, the country’s diverse history, food and music ensure every trip offers something new.
After working in office and event management, I joined Audley and now combine my love of travel and America with my love of planning.
I'll never forget when…
I recently went on the RCA Studio B tour in Nashville, and towards the end you sit in the studio and listen to music by the different artists that have recorded there including Johnny Cash, The Everly Brothers and Dolly Parton. While going through the Elvis recordings they tell a story of how 'Are You Lonesome Tonight?' was recorded and turn off all the studio lights while they play the song. There was something magical about sitting in the studio, imagining what it was like at the time, knowing that so many legendary songs had been recorded in that same room.
