Professional Bio

After a diverse tourism and travel career in Hawaii, California and Switzerland, I began teaching hospitality marketing in the bachelor’s programme at L’Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne in Switzerland. Simultaneously, I also taught marketing to Irish hoteliers in the Masters’ programme at Hibernia College in Dublin via the Internet. I had the great privilege to teach Chinese hoteliers in Shanghai and Xiamen, university students in Beijing as well hoteliers in Switzerland from all over the world. I learn as much from my students as they learn from me.

I am based in Switzerland and am currently freelancing in a variety of travel related activities including translating French to English for tourism offices and travel companies, all of which I love.

My published writing ranges from the empirical to the trivial.

I have published applied sciences university hospitality research, travel industry professional articles, and many travel articles for independent travel websites as well as for professional travel websites.

Favorite Blogs

Far too many to mention.. There are some very talented and inspirational writers out there on many topics.
