About Me


Moved to Chicago a couple of years ago and I'm looking to learn a lot, share stories, and meet some great people before I embark on my next journey.

I'm also really trying to make it to 25 countries before I turn 25 :)

I've met a ton of CouchSurfers while travelling and am looking forward to getting more involved.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I think all of the most striking moments I've had while travelling happened because I got to know someone new. Whether it was discussing family planning with a woman in rural Ecuador while she's knitting an alpaca sweater -- or being led around a market by a tuk tuk driver in India, for me it's always about the people you meet.
