About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To meet more people and live and drink more because I didn't do enough of that in college.

ABOUT ME

I'm a native New Yorker and my travel addiction first began when I backpacked through Europe at 17 with two of my girlfriends. In the years since, I've become a bit travel obsessed, and I've explored a great deal of North America (Hawaii, San Francisco, Toronto, Montreal, Cozumel, Seattle, Las Vegas), most of Europe (in 3 separate trips on my own) and some of Asia (China, and South Korea). Through it all I've met some truly amazing people who I would have never met otherwise, had life changing experiences, gone out of my comfort zone so many times, had so many adventures, and gained an education I never could have had otherwise. There is still so much of the world I want to see and I hope to do it while I'm still young enough to appreciate it.

I love meeting new people, having genuine conversations, exploring new places, learning about foreign cultures and customs, and trying new foods. On my own, I love exploring historical landmarks (I spend hours at history museums where ever I go), interesting stores (I especially love bookstores, and open door markets) and theaters and performing arts districts.

I studied film, history and writing in college. I am a bit introverted, but I love to laugh, and I love getting to know people, and I'm very talkative once I get to know you.

PHILOSOPHY

Life is short so don't waste it.
