I relocated to South Florida last year and spend a lot of time at the beach with my family. I also like DIY home projects, so I constantly have a list of things I’m working on. I enjoy restoring old furniture, giving it new life, and selling it!

I’ve traveled to 23 different countries and majority of the continental USA. Growing up, I wanted to be the host on a travel TV show.
