A dream facilitator and solo parent to a mini John Muir naturalist who guides our adventures. LA-based, but often exploring the wilds of the world.
My travel style
Former solo backpacker turned family travel flashpacker – backpacker at heart with a little more cash in the pocket! I always keep my love of exotic and adventure trips alive in my trip planning, even with children in tow. I love everything from bustling cities to off the beaten path middle of nowhere locations. I enjoy a jam-packed travel schedule taking in every experience I can find.

My 12 year old is a better traveler than me when things go wrong.
I am super organized and tidy at home and in travel.
