Hi there! I am Maureen – a travel and lifestyle blogger based in the US. I have spent over twenty years creating and managing web and interactive content in the corporate world. One look at my résumé and you will see that I have done pretty much everything from project management, SEO, web design, to video production. I am currently a Social Content Manager for IBM Watson and Cloud team, writing about all things Watson.

In addition to blogging about travel I also manage social media for the hospitality and tourism industry at Social Media Zen.

I currently live in New Jersey with my husband, two grown kids and three dogs. We travel every chance we get, living life 2.0. 

I was recently featured in Huffington Post as 16 Cool Midlife Women You Should Follow on Twitter.
