About Me


To fully enjoy life and to never stop learning growing


I am a recent graduate of Tulane University, where I majored in international development and joint Spanish-Portuguese. I recently moved out to Jersey City and work in Manhattan as a corporate communications/sustainability professional. I am enamored with the idea of a global society and I want to be as much a part of that society as possible. To me, this means experiencing new cultures and sharing my own. I am a pretty laid back individual and spend most of my free time engaging in various artistic endeavors, and exploring. I love nothing more than a good conversation with a stranger or a friend. If anything, I'd love to meet for a cup of coffee and hear your story.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I once went cliff diving in a rain forest in Ecuador. It was a terrifying and amazing at the same time.

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to learn something new! I love to cook for people and am always looking for new recipes. I will jump at the chance to practice my Spanish and Portuguese and French. I am also a professional henna artist, so if you want to get tatted-up, I am your lady!
