Work With Me

Adventures of a Carry-on offers a very intimate approach to promoting your brand. I will convey the essence of your brand through a custom campaign which includes original articles, photography, and social media content creation.  

I am not an “influencer.” I am a wine and lifestyle travel expert and writer. I share my experiences with an audience that trusts my recommendations. Strategic timing and placement of content are important elements in any marketing campaign. Therefore, I nurture long term relationships because I believe that is where the real value lies.

I’m open to partnering with companies that would be a fit for the outlets I write for: Boutique hotels and spas, unique tours, wineries, restaurants, and outdoor adventure companies are a few examples.

In addition to Adventures of a Carry-on, I offer publication options on high profile sites catering to value luxury audiences. 

Our readers are primarily sophisticated and educated travelers between the ages of 35 and 55. They are interested in unique cultural and heritage destinations. 

Sponsorship can range from a review of a hotel stay, all the way to on-going travel arrangements throughout the course of my adventures. I would be happy to discuss any partnership ideas that might work for your brand.

Please email me to request a media kit.
