About Me


To promote inexpensive, sustainable traveling while transforming strangers to friends.


From breast feeding to bar hopping, I came of age in the Pacific Northwest, splitting time between Portland, OR and Walla Walla, WA. After graduating from college, I spent two years dabbling in Chicago's social work scene before devoting seven months to international adventuring. Twenty nine countries later, I'm keepin' it regional in Seattle.


Stay in motion but [try to] appreciate sitting still.
