About Me

Hi! Welcome to my blog, and thanks for reading. I’m glad you’re here 🙂 Here’s a bit of background info about me. Feel free to get in touch, leave comments, and let me know your thoughts! Oh–and stay awesome 😉

I grew up in a small town near Amish country in Ohio. Raised by parents who possess a strong sense of adventure, the desire to explore the world and connect with people from different cultures was instilled at an early age. It’s no surprise then that at 18 I moved far as far across the country as possible to southern California where my thirsty adventurous heart was finally let loose!

I studied Media Communication and finished my degree in San Diego before transitioning to Los Angeles in hopes of pursuing a career in the film industry. When that didn’t evolve into the Hollywood dream I imagined, I took a break and began working in the restaurant industry. With more money and flexibility, my lifelong dream of traveling was suddenly feasible, and I began taking short trips whenever I could. Though it was something I always hoped for, I never imagined travel would become my life!

It’s been nearly 11 years since I left home, and I’m still going. What started out as simply a desire to experience something different, has now blossomed into a full-blown passion to see and experience as much as the world as possible.

I now travel full time all over the world, working whatever jobs I find to fund my travels, and continuing to meet and connect with people from all different backgrounds. I’m currently living in Perth, Australia, loving the beachy/city lifestyle and west coast vibes. Every new place and experience comes with different challenges to overcome and lessons to be learned, but all of it is what has made me the fearless, compassionate, and open-hearted person that I am today.

One day I may decide to settle down, but one thing is for sure; I will never stop exploring!
