About Me


I am currently on my biggest adventure yet! I'll start in India and end in East Africa a few months later -- everything in between is still a work in progress.

I can't wait to continue to meet amazing people all around the world.

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.
