Whenever I can, I love to hop on a plane and jet-set to a new city to discover a new culture. A few of my favorite places are:


Muscat, Oman

Bali, Indonesia


I used to read a lot of physical books until I discovered audio books. My favorite books include:

#Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso

Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert

What I Know for Sure by Oprah Winfrey

Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling

Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes

Mastery by Robert Greene

Culinary Arts

I enjoy cooking and baking dishes I have had while traveling the world. My favorite chefs include Gordon Ramsay and Jose Andres. I can also make a pretty tasty Rose Water Cheesecake. Don’t knock it until you try it.


I’ve always been a fan of technology since the internet’s arrival. I owned the very first Android phone. I’m the go-to person for all things technology when it comes to my friends. I try to incorporate it in everything I do.

Thank You!
