About Me

I’m a solo, female traveller with a penchant for seeing the world outside my comfort zone. I believe that travel has the power to teach us more than any classroom or cubicle could. I live for unexpected chats with strangers, straying from the itinerary, finding mind-blowing desserts, and hearing peoples’ stories.

When I'm not on the road, I'm a designer, blogger, amateur photographer, and on the board for a non-profit that focuses on eliminating extreme poverty.

Come travel with me.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I've been hosted by fantastic people in Africa, Europe and the U.S. I'm now road tripping through 'Murica and seeing what my own country has to offer.
