ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Long before I worked in the travel industry, I was a traveler. I've been lucky enough to explore 80 different countries on all six inhabited continents and have had the chance to both live and work around the world for most of my professional career. I've worked on major international projects in Australia, China, France and South Africa and I continue to circle the globe several times each year. I share many of my travel experiences on Style Hi Club.
Professionally, I run a marketing consultancy specializing in Destination Marketing. We work with major international tourism boards and travel brands all over the world. I also sit on various travel industry boards. Every day I remind myself how lucky I am to have had the opportunity to combine my love of travel with my career. The travel industry is complicated, and as a way of giving back, I want to help others to have the same opportunities by becoming knowledgeable, informed and able to identify possibilities otherwise unknown.
