My lifelong passions revolve around indigenous food, lifestyles and hospitality of extraordinary destinations. The earliest joyful recollections I have, are of exhilarating adventures into foreign culture and cuisine throughout the abundant ethnic enclaves of Los Angeles. I treasure exploring and celebrating each locations distinctive personality and flavor. I hold a BA in Anthropology from UC Irvine and spent my junior year abroad in Madrid. My Juris Doctorate studies included comparative civil litigation while living in London and Oxford. Travel through 53 countries thus far, leaves me feeling blessed by the warm welcome, uplifted by the support of each community and thrilled to share the hidden treasures with my readers.
