An aspiring local everywhere I go. Always in search of the best meal and the best deal. Currently based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
GIG and SDU in Brazil, ORD when I'm stateside.
My travel style
I love digging into history and culture, as well as getting off-the-beaten-path. I've lived in six different countries and always try to experience new places like a local. I'm always in search of great meals – whether they come from a street food cart or a Michelin-starred restaurant. Having grown up in Chicago, I'm a city girl at heart but I love escaping to national parks or beaches to take a break from the fast lane.
In Rio’s hilltop Joatinga neighborhood, stay here for the epic ocean and coastline views, the maximalist style and dreamy infinity pool.

A hip pick in two landmark buildings in Wicker Park, with unique bunk and loft rooms that groups love.
Recently returned from:
Partying at Carnival in Rio de Janeiro.
Road-tripping through Utah's national parks.
Camping in the Jordanian desert.
Sipping wine in Portugal.
Dancing a tango in Buenos Aires.
Cruising the Amazon River.
One thing I can't travel without...
My portable charger – a lifesaver.
Two truths, one lie:
I ate a Michelin-starred meal for $3.
I speak five languages.
I've written a book.
