Lena Katz loves a long journey to an obscure destination. That being said, she never tires of jumping over to familiar cities like LA and Miami to see what's new and noteworthy. She lives for quirky characters and historical tales (and/or tall tales). She's had a book series published, launched a magazine in Los Angeles, and contributed travel stories to outlets like USA Today and ABCNews.com. She develops lifestyle television concepts part-time, and is tackling her first "shiny floor" competition format for an NBCU production company. Lena’s written a dozen port guides for Onboard.com.
