Hi I’m Amy West and I like to think of myself as a lifestyle curator. Born to a family of entrepreneurs, I’ve always been a self starter. As a teenager I caught a permanent case of wanderlust when I began traveling abroad. I learned two things very early in life: I wanted to be a story teller, and travel would be my way of life. In 2012 I launched my luxury travel and lifestyle TV show titled “Like, Love, Want, Need”. Out of that successful launch the online brand Amy West Travel was born.
Like most self starters my resume houses a creative array of experiences. I spent 7 years in the spa industry, cultivated my own photography studio from the ground up, and have spent more than a decade in the entertainment world as an actress, model, and producer. This in-depth knowledge of business, personal service, and style sets me apart in the community of influencers as does my unique creative perspective when it comes to content creation.
Over the years my multi platform approach has expanded beyond Amy West Travel to also include my contributions as a freelance writer, travel guru, and lifestyle expert for multiple news outlets. I’m honored to have been recognized as one of the Top Ten Luxury Bloggers by Travel Trolley UK, and one of the Top Luxury Bloggers to Follow by Trip Advisor’s Flip Key.
