Celeste got her first taste for travel and adventure at the tender age of six on Venezuela-bound Pan Am flight. There was an emergency landing in Rio, there was a hotel room courtesy of the airline, and the beginning of Celeste's passion for traveling.
A Buenos Aires native, Celeste spent part of her adolecence in Boston and Amherst. She studied in the UK for a year and backpacked across Europe. Upon earning her BA in English Literature, she moved to Chicago and worked at the Tribune. Two Chicago winters and summer were more than she could handle so she packed up and moved to sunny LA where she embraced everything about the SoCal lifestyle: the beach, the smoothies, the kale salads, and yoga. She worked as a digital producer at Sony Pictures; she produced events at LACMA, and covered the music scene for various publications.
In 2007, she packed again and moved to the 49th parallel where she has lived ever since. She has written for the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Conde Nast Traveler, Outside, Spin, Real Simple, Robb Report, Mercedes Benz, Audi, Gourmet, Afar, Virtuoso, Globe and Mail, Vancouver Sun, and various other publications.
