Over the years, I have slowly learned the in’s and out’s of the travel industry from my day job as a marketing manager which requires me to travel frequently. With all of my day job travel, I’ve reached Delta Diamond Medallion, United Gold and Marriott Platinum Elite status. After several inquiries from my friends and family asking me for travel help.

You don’t have to be wealthy to enjoy a lavish travel experience. With a strong passion of East and South East Asia culture and history, my voice will be in deals and unique experiences in that region.
