    Brooke Berlin Boulder-based citizen of the world

    Brooke spent her formative years doing freelance writing, after having earned a degree in Magazine Journalism from Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications with a minor in Cultural Anthropology. She studied in Madrid, Spain; ventured out on a six-month road trip across North America; took a year off to travel around the world, including an extended stay in South Africa; moved to San Diego to open the W hotel; relocated to Boulder to manage a boutique inn; and then spent nearly a decade leading the marketing efforts of a bespoke, private travel company. Today, Brooke focuses her time on Africa, and represents a small collection of properties through her company, Karoo Consulting. As of mid-2017, she has traveled to 49 countries on 5 continents. She is a collector of contemporary African art, loves a pumping all-night dance party, discovered she isn’t made out for the jungle, and will almost always say yes to a new adventure … her most recent, off-the-beaten-path travels have included Madagascar, Morocco, Sudan, and Zimbabwe.
