Chief Chile Connoisseur
I was inspired to launch Wander New Mexico in 2016 after dreaming for several years about starting a travel business while working as a management consultant in Dubai and San Francisco. Like many, I've been drawn to the breathtaking landscapes, rich culture and history, and unexpected discoveries in this special corner of the earth (and marrying into a third generation New Mexican family also helped!).
Making, eating, and learning about food & drink is my passion! Before moving to Santa Fe, I lived and traveled around the country and the globe, visiting over 80 countries. Five years in Dubai gave me the opportunity to travel around the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia and sample delicacies like Cambodian fish head soup, Ethiopian injera bread, and Moroccan tajine. A stint in San Francisco sparked my passion for wine, and I love exploring the excellent, and lesser-known wine scene in New Mexico. I'm also a homebrewer, and enjoy experimenting with local ingredients and brewing seasonal speciality beers for friends and family.
I can't wait to share everything that this incredible region has to offer! You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Happy travels!
