I WRITE INSPIRATION & ADVICE FOR ADVENTUROUS PEOPLE.
Growing up, I was not outdoorsy. I didn’t know anyone who traveled regularly. I didn’t have a role model who was exploring the world.
But as I got older, I got curious. I felt like it was something I had to do.
When I was 19, I went on my first wilderness expedition. It was one of the more challenging things I’d ever done. It changed my life and I’ve been hungry for more ever since.
After graduating from SUNY Purchase with a Bachelor’s Degree in Visual Arts & Environmental Studies in 2012, I spent three years living out of my backpack, traveling and leading teen adventure programs in 9 countries.
I am currently loosely based in Colorado, writing and traveling often.
WHY THIS BLOG?
I started this blog in December 2014 as an attempt to get over my fears and challenge myself in a new way. At that point, I had lots of travel experience and stories to share, I just hadn’t been putting it out there.
This blog started as a way for me to share my stories and tips from time spent in the outdoors and traveling. I quickly realized that trip reports and product reviews bore me to tears, so I started writing more free-form reflections instead. That is what you’ll find here today: pieces that challenge you to be real, show up, and live your life like you mean it.
I aim to empower you to make purposeful choices in your life, and to show you that an adventurous life is completely within your reach.
