Hello all! I am a professional Fitness, Health & Wellness Personal Trainer, Artist, and Innovator. Tempe, Arizona has been home for the last 14 years, but am originally from the North side of Chicago. I have grown to love the mountains, desert, hiking, but still love the urban metropolis.
I am a foodie in all its glory...it is a direct result of my culturally diverse upbringing. I am half Korean and half Mexican/French/Spanish...combing my personal ethnicity with the melting pot that is Chicago, I was so very fortunate to have been exposed to and introduced to so much wonderful foods, people, art, and traditions. The bar was set very high coming from such a high quality (and quantity) city, but most of the thanks goes to my mom. So, needless to say I love trying new interesting restaurants and cafes. Similarly, I am curious about new wines and beers.
Art and Science are passions of mine, I have been creating, illustrating and painting for most of my life. I love taking in all forms of art, from museums, theater, poetry, to concerts. I find that the two most striking elements during my travels is the natural beauty of the new destination and the history and stories of that city or town.
When I travel I love to get a feel of what everyday life is like in that particular city, town, or village. Really getting out of the touristy routes, and exploring the heart and soul of my destination.
Peace and Love.
