Currently based in Chicago, I work in advertising saving where I can so I can travel and enjoy the simple pleasures of cities different from my own.
I love discovering new places by experiencing local foods, customs, and attractions. The goal of my travel is never to hit all the tourist traps, but simply to live as the locals do.
When I am not traveling I enjoy running (ran my first half marathon this spring!), volunteering, eating brunch, and going to concerts. Favorite bands for the moment include: Fleet Foxes, tUne-YarDs, Local Natives, Bon Iver, Florence and the Machines, and Foster the People.
I cannot live without peanut butter, live music, my family/friends, (website hidden)maps, and my Mac computer.
Life motto? It is my desire to master the art of living one moment at a time.
