My love for adventure started my senior year of high school. Between going to the beach on long weekends and taking my senior trip to Peru, I longed for a career that would allow me to travel and work simultaneously. At the same time that I was filling out college applications, I started building my Etsy + photography businesses. By the time high school graduation rolled around, I had opted out of getting a traditional college degree and decided to pursue entrepreneurship full time.
This path has led me to sharing some of the best moments with couples on their wedding days, rushed post office runs during busy season, and road-tripping around foreign countries; igniting a deeper love for the unpredictable at every turn. I spend my time exploring new places, learning from my mistakes, and trying new things every chance I get.
This blog was created to document just that. You’ll find my favorite travel hacks, paired right alongside tips for growing your Etsy shop. I don’t know what the future holds (who does?), but I plan on sharing every step of my journey right here. Thanks so much for exploring my little corner of the web!

fact #1 | My 3 most favorite things in life are lighthearted conversations, new places to explore, and tart cherry kombucha.
fact #2 | I’ll try anything once. A list a things I’ve recently tried: pig brain at a hot pot restaurant, racing a full Ironman, and surfing in San Diego.
fact #3 | Being self employed, in any capacity, is my dream job. However, if that wasn’t an option I’d get a degree to become a high school science teacher.
