Seeing the world doesn’t have to be complicated‚Ķ

Whether you’re planning an epic vacation or an international move, I’m here to help!

My super-detailed guides tackle life’s burning questions, like how to order good coffee in French, or fly a 70lb dog to a foreign country.

Let me take the guesswork out of international travel and relocation so that you can focus on what’s important: having the experience of a lifetime.
