I'm a chronic escape artist that spent my teenage years growing up at the foot of the Bavarian Alps, and most recently, I was an expat living and working in Asia for the last six years (pre-panny). Somewhere in those six years, I jetted off to Cape Town for a few months. Now, I'm back stateside and I still can't keep still. My Shiba Inu, Koji, is my boss. This 'About' section isn't nearly big enough for my stories, so please feel free to send me a note with questions or ask about my travels!

Home airports

SNA over everything, LAX if I have to.

My travel style

I live for getting to know the history and authentic culture of every place I escape to – I'm always getting into an adventure for the books! Very indulgent, so I live for treating myself and my people to the finer bits of the city. I truly believe the best way to get to know a place is through their cuisine! The art of travel. I love everything about it. I have a passion for inspiring others to step outside of their comfort zones and experience everything our beautiful world has to offer and those in it, just as I have.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Living and giving vibes in Shanghai, China.

One thing I can't travel without...

A hoodie or jacket – I'm always cold!

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I sat next to two monkeys in Bali.

  2. I stayed in five different Airbnbs in Cape Town.

  3. My friend got stuck in quicksand in the Philippines.
