My Background

How I Got Started

How I Got Started

Former [insert almost any job you can think of] who bounced around from Cleveland, to Pittsburgh, to SC, to Charlotte, to Brooklyn and back, I never imagined I’d spend a year calling Medellin, Colombia home. South America was a dream, yet new lands hailed. At this point, I'm a full blown expatriate, currently traveling Southeast Asia.

How I Got Started

Inspired by my first international solo trip to Isla Holbox in 2012, I began dreaming about living that way. On vacation! It took a little

while to figure out how, but eventually I took a TEFL course, gave away all of my things, and moved abroad in 2016. 

Krabi, Thailand

My wanderlust runs deep; it’s so hard to pick faves! Don‘t be surprised if there’s a different place listed here on your next visit!


  • Medellin, Colombia. The city of eternal spring will eternally have my heart. Get into my blog posts and gallery...you’ll see why!


  • Krabi, Thailand was a dream. I might be overly enamored because that’s where I spent my most recent birthday; however....it was beautiful! Laid back, friendly people, good food, and of course, the beaches!
