About

I’m one of those twentysomethings that has an existential crisis on the daily. For as long as I can remember, my internal monologue has grappled with how to live life as I please despite our society’s systems. I skipped a couple hundred days of high school and somehow managed to get into an awesome university. After changing majors a handful of times, I still figured out too late that I would have loved studying art history or comparative literature. I got married at 22 and only recently moved in my husband after two years of marriage. My life is weird and I’m sure I’m not the only one.

Born and raised in the ‘burbs of sunny SoCal, I bleed blue and gold—Go Bruins! With a degree in Sociology with a minor in political science, I was constantly asked, “What do you do with that?” That’s part of the reason you’re reading this. Social sciences make you realize the importance of written and verbal communication to express feelings, experiences, and ideas. Since my teenage years, I’ve had a knack for writing and my fair share of angst-y online journals.

So here I am, sharing my story and hoping you’re encouraged to share yours too. I’m here to connect with folks who love all things travel, art, culture, and self-awareness. Let’s tell some tales together.

Deeply devoted to personal development; reflection and action get me where I’m going. Love venturing to new places, be they near or far. The world is too big and life is too short to be doing the same shit on different days.
