*During the prequel trilogy (Episodes I – III), the Sith ( the “dark side”) gain control of the Republic and form the Galactic Empire.

*In the original trilogy (Episodes IV-VI), the Rebellion fights against the empire and forms the New Republic.

*In the final trilogy (Episodes VII-IX), remnants of the Galactic Empire return as the First Order and attempt to gain back control of the galaxy. The Resistance rises up for a final battle.

I was born and raised in Los Angeles to parents who enjoyed traveling - exploring sites, tasting local flavors, and experiencing traditions from other cultures. They introduced us to the world at a young age. That love to explore has continued, and the journey has led me to become a professional travel planner. I now get to share the world with not only my own family but also all the families who entrust their special vacations with me. #dreamjob
