We’re a diverse bunch! We’ve come from many parts of the country and the globe; we speak many languages, and we’ve traveled the far corners of the planet, from Atacama to Zanzibar. Meet the team members here at Zicasso!
Lucky me! My job allows me to explore my big passions: travel, food, photography, and wildlife. I love the adventure of discovery when I travel. For food, my favorite destinations are Italy and Malaysia, where I grew up. Most of all, I love African safaris--the wildlife and scenery create a photographer’s paradise!
Having traveled to over 60 countries, I treasure the moments that I am immersed in the wonder of nature, cute wildlife included. I love being able to form a genuine connection with local people and life, whether it be following a leopard and her cubs in Botswana to discovering a Tibetan monk’s life journey.
Originally from Southern California, I left home in 2004 to spend eight years in Asia and South America before relocating to the Bay Area. When I am not busy onboarding new Zicasso partners, you can find me exploring the Marin Headlands, listening to 80s music or baking oatmeal chocolate chip cookies with my grandma.
I lived along the East Coast but recently spent three years in Madrid teaching English, eating endless amounts of tapas, and dancing away the weekends. Next came a new adventure in California, and along with traveling, I love to explore social media, find new local dessert hot spots and relax at the beach with a glass of sangria.
While born in Taiwan, I have spent most of my life in California. With 13 years in the hotel industry before joining Zicasso, I now enjoy spending time with my family and taking quick weekend trips to Disneyland. My ultimate goal is to visit all the Disney Parks around the world!
Before relocating to California, I lived in London, Prague and my beloved Krakow. My passion for travel started many years ago with family trips to the magnificent mountain ridge of Bieszczady, and I now love to explore small towns and villages with unique architecture, legends, and stories of local people across the world.
I am an American born Chinese with love for travel, as long as it includes awesome food, particularly noodles.

I am Minnesota born and raised, but currently loving my life in the mountains of California. My dogs are my cooking assistants in everyday life, but as an animal lover and foodie, I try to explore the cuisine and the wildlife of the countries I visit. Next up is South Africa!
From getting to know Hawaii like the back of my hand to spending several weeks in London, I first fell in love with travel as a child during my family’s yearly road trips to Mexico. I’m a Northern California native, and I like to bake, hike and eat burpees for breakfast.
Homegrown in the Bay Area with a passion for rock climbing, cooking, and the great outdoors. After I have satisfied my rumbling appetite, you can catch me scaling a seismic boulder or riding down a snowy mountain. My top destination is Japan for their unique terrain, exquisite scenery, and mouth-watering cuisine.
I took a year abroad to Florence, Italy when I was in college without ever having been out of the country before. I craved adventure, excitement, people, and above all else, food. I found it all, and have been to 45 countries since. As someone with an overactive sense of fantasy, I always love when the world surpasses my imagination.
A California native, I grew up traveling thanks to my father's career in the airline industry. One of my earliest childhood memories is our family trip to Panama, so it is now important to me to travel with my husband and two boys. I have been to 20 countries so far, and our list is always growing.
I am a native of Santa Cruz, California and enjoy sea glass hunting, beach days, hiking, and reading a good book. My husband and I have three Disney-loving children who keep me busy. We have a lot of fun traveling together, and are always looking forward to our next adventure.
I am a recent graduate from Harvard University with a degree in Neurobiology. My favorite travel destinations include Brazil during the 2014 World Cup and Spain for its mouthwatering tapas and delicious wine. On the weekends, you can find me looking for corgi puppies, playing pickup soccer, or trying out a new recipe with a Korean twist.
Hailing from the Bay Area, I enjoy being curled up with a fantasy book or fixed in a high-intensity board game. While I am infatuated with fictional universes, I am equally as passionate about exploring this one. My next travel destination is yet to be determined because the possibilities are indeed endless.
I am a Brazilian who loves travel, photography, and design. Having been to nearly 30 countries so far, I am always actively looking for my next travel destination. I love how travel inspires me and stimulates my creative side, and my favorite destination so far has been South Africa for its immersive wilderness experiences.
The web is a passion of mine as it gives people all over the world the power to communicate instantly with each other. Nowadays, discovering new places to explore is getting easier and easier. As for my next destination? I think the coast of the Mediterranean is calling my name.
I am Bay Area native who loves all things Disney! My lifelong dream is to visit all Disney parks, and so far, I have visited seven of the twelve around the world. One of my most memorable travel destinations is Tokyo, Japan as I am fascinated by their diverse culture and food.
I have always loved staying home, but now live in London, so European travel has taken over. Alongside my husband and two sons, we have been to 11 countries in just the last year, and I love to experience Zicasso itineraries "come to life."
I grew up in Mexico in a close knit family of 5, and I had my first taste of international adventure when I moved to Argentina in 2009. What rocks my world? I love coffee, books, traveling, puppies, cats, and living the California life.
I grew up a tennis-playing Californian, attended UCLA and moved from LA to New York to Boston and back home again. On my first trip abroad, I remember dragging my luggage up the station stairs to see Paris beautifully lit before me. I still seek the awe of that moment in my travels alongside my husband and three children.
I’m a Georgia Peach with a penchant for food, travel, culture, and unicorns, and aim to find myself at the epicenter of experiences related to one or more. When I am not cooking up a storm, traveling, or out exploring, you can find me curled up on the couch devouring a good book or binge watching Netflix.
Growing up in California, my first travel was backcountry camping trips, swimming, and fly fishing. These adventures, combined with trips abroad to visit family, ignited a search for more authentic experiences in remote and foreign lands. After 12 years working in travel, I continue to revel in the thrill of arriving for the first time to an new place.
Whether it is witnessing the great wildebeest migration in the Serengeti or enjoying the stillness of nature on an unbeaten path, travel has enabled me to connect with people from around the world to hear their stories and learn about their land. I am eager to share these unique experiences through the handcrafted itineraries at Zicasso.
Born and raised in Hawaii, I found my passion for travel as part of the luxury hospitality industry. Having lived and worked in places like Istanbul, Texas, Puerto Rico, and California, the best part has been the friends that I have made along the way. You can find me golfing, surfing, or rock-climbing, and enjoying great food.
