I grew up travelling around the world with my family, and over the years my love for travel grew. Professionally, I started out in the hotel industry, but after 10 years I decided to make a move to Mr & Mrs Smith, where I now combine my extensive knowledge of hotels with my zest for travel to help our members uncover new gems.

Santa Monica, United States
Santa Monica Proper
Everyone in Los Angeles has a ‘go to’ on their side of town, and the Santa Monica Proper is mine. This hotel isn’t just ideally located between the SoCal sands and local restaurants, but also has intricate, bright interiors that lift the spirits as soon as you walk in. Make sure you stop by the rooftop bar for an aperitif with a view.View Hotel
My essentials are sunscreen, a camera, a phone charger, and hand sanitizer.
This is a must if you’re driving up the coast from Rome to Florence. Located along the border connecting Tuscany, Lazio and Le Marche, this fairly undiscovered area is a picture-perfect Italian region; characterised by rows of olive groves, secluded cobbled streets, and lush rolling landscapes.View Hotels
