About Me




i am a kind and loving spirit attracted to positivity, adventures, colors, flavors, art, music, creativity and positive energy...!

my life is a beautiful journey which has taught me so much! i've experienced so many blessings and have learned from beautiful beings including my most amazing teachers: trees. i have lived on a bus traveling the US promoting sustainability with 7 other souls while documenting the journey... I have also lived on another bus traveling mexico promoting sustainability through another non-profit that my brothers created.

i prefer to live in the present moment. i crave experiences, adventures and positive vibrations. i am a very open and social person, yet need time and space to recharge my energy every once in a while.

i am a natural tree hugger and love to climb trees.

i enjoy pic-nics, sleeping out in nature, campfires, great all night conversations and cosmic connections.


"follow your bliss..." --joseph campbell
