Hi, I am a writer who loves to travel.
As a child sitting on my rooftop in New York City and watching the airplanes take off for places unknown I would dream and write about all the journeys that I wanted to take.
I started traveling in college. Since then, I have been sharing my passion for travel by planning and leading teen trips through Europe and the United States. I am now focusing full-time on travel and story writing.
My current bucket list includes Thailand, Rome, the Isle of Skye, Lisbon, Chefchaouen, Mumbai, Cantabria, Bali, Morocco and Reykjavik.
When I'm not writing or journaling, I enjoy practicing yoga and meditation, watercolor painting, taking dance classes and watching T.V. I am a bit of a television aficionado.
