I am a Chilean native born in Norway to globetrotting parents. I've traveled to dozens of countries, log hundreds of thousands of miles a year and am fluent in Spanish, French and English. My travel experiences allow me to be one of the industry’s foremost consumer travel advocates.
I live in Los Angeles with my wife, Renee, three children and myriad pets.
I am Travelzoo’s Senior Editor and a leading expert on travel deals, tips and trends. I appear regularly on highly-rated networks, including NBC, CNN and Fox News, as well as affiliate stations in top TV markets around the country, including New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston and San Francisco. I am also regularly quoted in major publications, like the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and US News and World Report.
I am a longtime food and wine writer too.
