About Me


Learn something new every day


After 6 months working for an NGO in Chile - helping local entrepreneurs to grow their businesses - I've been travelling throughout Latin America and volunteering. I'm currently in Rio de Janeiro, and am gearing up for a few weeks travel around the country before heading back to the States and bringing this yearlong adventure to a close. I've already learned so much from the people I've met during my travels, and am excited for the next adventure.


be thankful and gracious always, there is no more important opportunity than that to do kindness to another - friend or stranger, and attitude is everything
