Partnerships:

As an independent writer and blogger, I am always willing and excited to work with tourism bureaus, nonprofits, and travel organizations. My schedule allows me to be relatively flexible in terms of when I can travel, but summer and winter travel are typically when I am most available. However, please don’t hesitate to contact me if you are interested in partnering with me! Some of my recent FAM and press trips include:

  • Tourism Victoria, B.C. (Jan. 2015):¬†Partnered with Tourism Victoria to participate in a trip from Vancouver to Vancouver Island and visit both the Royal B.C. Museum and have high tea at the Grand Pacific Hotel.
  • Malta Tourism Authority (August 2014):¬†Partnered with Malta Tourism to increase interest to U.S. market by participating in a 3-day independent FAM to various cities around Malta (Marsaxlokk, Vittoriosa, Mdina, among others) and a trip to Gozo, one of Malta’s older and smaller islands.
  • Art is Everywhere with Springhill Marriott and Ogilvy & Mather (June 2014):¬†Invited to participate in the launch of Manhattan Beach’s Springhill Marriott’s new campaign, Art is Everywhere. In addition to taking a curated trip with local art experts, we explored the unexpected places where art comes alive (in the streets, in a glass, on a plate, on a building), and promoting the launch via social media and blogging. #artiseverywhere
  • Costa Rica Tourism and TAM Travel (Nov 2013):¬†Invited by TAM Travel to participate in an independent press trip to the northern region of Guanacaste. The aim of this trip is to increase awareness of Costa Rica’s northern state as well as contribute to longstanding efforts to promote environmental sustainability, nature tourism, holistic wellness resorts, and cultural diversity within the country. My itinerary includes Arenal, Guanacaste, and Monteverde.
  • MSA Partners and Japan Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries (MAFF) (Oct. 2013): Invited to participate in a food/ingredients FAM trip to highlight certain cuisine trends in Japan. While I was actually unable to attend this time, I’m working with my contact at MSA in the hopes that we can collaborate on the next arranged trip.
  • Tourism Malaysia and Colours of 1Malaysia (May 2013): Invited to participate in a FAM trip to Malaysia to participate in the annual cultural awareness festival, Colours of 1Malaysia. The event, which is country-wide, is organized by the Ministry of Tourism to introduce and promote local tourism products, as well as to highlight Malaysia’s many cultural and ethnic diversities. Our itinerary includes Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, Mulu, Miri, and Langkawi.
  • Tourism Authority of Thailand and Thai Airways (Nov. 2012): Invited by Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) and Thai Airways (TG) to participate in a FAM press trip to Thailand with 5 other journalists/photographers from the U.S. and Korea to increase awareness about new flight routes to Thailand and inspire interest in a number of resorts, cultural excursions, and gastronomical options. Our itinerary, which included a variety of stops in Bangkok, Hua Hin, and Chang Mai, has resulted in a number of stories, photographs, and social media outreach for TAT-TG.
  • Taiwan Tourism Bureau (May 2012): Invited to participate in a special FAM trip to Taiwan, sponsored by the Taiwan Tourism Bureau and Intertrend Communications, to increase awareness about Taiwan’s potential as a tourism destination through a combination of social media outreach, blogging, and article production. Our itinerary, which included both outdoor and cultural activities, has resulted in quite a variety of positive promotional work for TTB.
