I'm an avid traveler and adventurer. I travel for both pleasure and for my work, which is in print media, styling photography and writing homes and decorating features for national American magazines, such as Coastal Living, House Beautiful, Traditional Home, Better Homes + Gardens, HGTV magazine, etc. In my spare time, I enjoy off-the-grid adventure travel and backpacking to beautiful and remote destinations. I also enjoy running, photography, gardening, reading– and tirelessly renovating & redecorating my authentic 1931 Spanish-style bungalow. :)
I have been around the world a time or two and continue to enjoy discovering new places. Some of my favorite trips include, motorcycling across Vietnam, a month stint in India, backpacking Patagonia and the Himalayas, trekking across Cuba on bicycle, exploring South Africa and surrounding countries with friends, Thanksgiving and Christmas in Central America, and a semester abroad in Italy, which landed me in most of Europe. I've also worked throughout most Carribbean islands/ nations. Most recently, I've enjoyed traveling across Hungary, Romania, and Moldova with my brother, who's serving a three-year stretch as a US Peace Corp volunteer in Annenii Noi, Moldova.
