Tell us about your business.

I've had a bit of a love affair with maps since I was a little one. I remember many long road trips with my parents, when I'd ask them to hand over the atlas to the backseat and I'd be occupied for hours, trying to figure out where we were and where we were going.

What makes your business stand out?

One of the great benefits of this work is learning about new places everyday, based on requests from clients. Whether it's seeking out a remote mountain village in the Alps for a necklace or a cozy beach town in California for a bookmark, this exercise has broadened my understanding of all those important places that my clients hold close to their hearts.
