About Me

Chinatown, San Francisco, California | November '17

I’m just a small town girl with a second-hand camera and an itchy foot, pinching my pennies and dashing off to hunt adventures whenever I have a moment free!

I’m proudly multi-racial, passionately a bookworm, and am eternally daydreaming about new landscapes and distant horizons.  My first adventure was my own small-town (population: 600) rural upbringing along California’s redwood-studded coasts, and while travel was never a part of my early life it was a part of my daydreams from the very beginning.

Rio Grande, Albuquerque, New Mexico | April ’17

When life is hand to mouth and leftovers have to be made to stretch an extra day the last thing anyone has time for is a vacation, and so it was years until I finally screwed my eyes tight shut and took a leap of faith in to the world of travel.   I boarded my first solo flight with a crisp passport clutched in a sweaty fist and promised to myself that no matter what happened, I’d enjoy the process and come back with a great story to tell and a heart full of memories.

This decision has seen me waking up to howler monkeys at sunrise along the playful beaches of Costa Rica, walking the footsteps of King Arthur and his knights along England’s Cornish cliffs before jetting off to fall in love with the gray streets of a rainy autumn in Paris, swimming in the Adriatic as I explored Croatian islands by boat, and learning to like wine in the off-season piazzas of Montevere, Rome… and its only the beginning.

I never quite have a fully thought-out plan and I spend an awful lot of time laughing in hindsight at my impulsive ideas, but I’ve never once regretted the moments and adventures I’ve been blessed with so far.  I’m looking forward to new mistakes and to sharing with you all of the wonders along the way!

See you on the road, wanderers!
