Make Packing And Organizing Your Flight Attendant Bag Quick And Easy

There are just some things about travel and flight attendant life that I don't think I will EVER love. Like lavatories. Or jet lag. Or delays. Or creepy pilots. Or... Packing and unpacking.

The Magic Of Mexico: Escaping To Isla Blanca

Editor's note: this is a very personal confession of my life.

The Power In Fluidity

“Last week— when you said you were moving to Florida— I 100 percent believed you.” Nicole stated this over a vegetarian bowl of brown rice and veggies; enjoyed under the late afternoon rays of September’s California sunshine. “And this week,” she continued between bites, “I 100 percent believe that you are committed to California now.” […]

Being A Male Corporate Flight Attendant In Business Aviation

When I first became a Commerical Flight Attendant, I would always dream of working on private jets with the rich and famous. However, I never dreamt it would become possible. I always made the assumption that only the young pretty girls were amongst the glamorous Private Cabin Attendants. It wasn’t until I started doing my […]

3 Rules For Choosing The Perfect Cabin Crew Shoe

In the airline industry, the way crew look matters. Stylish, sophisticated, and poised; a flight attendant is the first face of an airline brand for an air traveler.

I shuffled my feet against the sand as the gently rolling waves sidled up to the shore. A half-rainbow danced along the horizon—oreoed between high rise beach condos— as the sun skipped above the sea. This was Florida. For a minute, it felt like a miracle.

A Photo Diary: Seven Years Of ‘Flight Attendant Life’

Sometimes, words fall short; failing to really convey an experience, place, or journey. So often, we as human beings are struck so deeply by the magic of a moment, we have little to speak. Sometimes a picture must represent what English cannot, and even sometimes, photos fail to grasp the magnitude of travel.  I feel that […]

1963 Threw Up Here

My pillbox hat teeters precariously as the caravan of precocious suitcases— large, medium, small, and hand-baggage size— swarm me like a hive of angry Africanized bees.
