One summer years ago I discovered airbnb while traveling across Europe. I had really nice experiences with my hosts so I decided I would try out hosting when I got back home. I listed my condo and immediately had bookings, in fact I had so many bookings that I decided to turn it into a business. What a lucky break for me. Airbnb has been amazing and I've been able to travel the world, as my business has given me a lot of flexibility and free time.

I owe everything to one book that has changed my life completely, The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. Let me know if you're a fan. I love positive people and especially love to hear about positive experiences.

Before traveling, I do extensive research on where to stay. I prefer modern style private homes over hotels and would only book a hotel if I had no other option. One of my favorite places of all time is the Desert Nomad House in Tucson. I got to stay there before it was sold. What an experience! It is a Rick Roy designed home in the desert of Arizona, but more like a piece of art constructed of three boxes. One box was the living room, one was the study and the other was the bedroom and bathroom. I'd give anything to go back!

I love photography, food, wine, and meeting new people. The perks of being an airbnb host is that you're constantly meeting new people, people you wouldn't have otherwise met from all over the world.

When I'm not traveling, I split my time between Houston and London so that I can be with my family & friends and my husband. Most of the time I am traveling overseas but don't worry. I have an international plan on my mobile and I have staff to take care of you when I am not around.
