I love spending time with my loving family and friends, enjoy photography, practicing yoga, breathing in the fresh crisp air of the mountains and soaking up the sun by any beach! My job has me traveling around the globe while exploring new destinations, that's one of the main reasons I enjoy giving back to the Airbnb community by opening up my comforting space to fellow adventurers!
