Where was your photo taken: Museo del Chocolate, Havana, Cuba.

Where do you live now: Brooklyn, New York.

Scariest airline flown: My flight from Managua to Big Corn Island last September on La Costeña Airlines was probably the scariest I’ve ever taken. Our tiny prop plane bobbled violently for what seemed like an eternity through enormous rain clouds. Each jolt was accompanied by a chorus of screams from the back of the plane.

Favorite city/country/place: My favorite city is probably Melbourne, though there are at least a dozen cities nipping at its heels. Some other favorite places include Terre-de-Haut (Guadeloupe), northern California, and the Dutch island of Schiermonnikoog.

Most remote corner of the globe visited: Boipeba Island, Brazil.

Favorite guidebook series: Bradt travel guides, for their inspiring titles and cultural insights. I’m also a fan of Rough Guides, Lonely Planet, and Time Out.

Dream travel destination: Rapa Iti, French Polynesia.

Person you’d most like to interview for Gadling
: The amazingly well-traveled Lauren Hutton.

Type of traveler: Budget, with low-tech adventure undertones and occasional departures of the eco-friendly luxury variety.

Next trip: Boston and Cape Cod.
