Featured Contributors

AMBER GIBSON

Amber Gibson studied journalism at Northwestern University and now covers luxury

travel, food, wine and wellness for Forbes, Robb Report, National Geographic

Traveler, Saveur and Hemispheres. She’s flown a plane to the Grand Canyon,

spearfished in Mexico and dined with chefs like Francis Mallmann and Massimo

Bottura in their homes, all in the name of work. Her greatest weaknesses are

Champagne, gelato and dark chocolate. Still on her list of places to visit are Japan,

Peru and Morocco.

SARAH HARVEY

Sarah Harvey has been writing about the Maldives for eight years and has reviewed

nearly all 120-plus resorts in the tropical archipelago. Having lived in the Maldives,

she is able to dig deep into the nuances between islands as well as shed some light

on the unique Maldivian culture in her articles. Sarah has also written travel, lifestyle

and news articles for various high-profile publications including Fodor’s, the Los

Angeles Times and CNN. As someone who is fascinated by other cultures, she has

lived in seven countries on four continents; taking time to embed herself deeply in

the local culture.

VALENTINA VALENTINI

Valentina Valentini is a freelance journalist whose bylines include Vanity Fair, Variety,

New York Magazine and others within the entertainment industry. She has published

personal essays with the Los Angeles Times and Refinery29, and reported features

for VICE, Fast Company and Mashable. In the last four years, she’s focused on travel

and food/wine writing for Departures, BBC Travel and others. Currently, she is

pursuing her Masters in Creative Non-fiction in London.
