you want to work online and travel the world

I've spent the last 10 years working online. The last 3 were spent traveling through 6 different continents.

i can help you with that.

I spent my childhood doodling on scrap paper, dabbling in Photoshop, and snapping pictures on my pink Canon camera. Then came four years of art school, where I honed my craft as a designer. And after that? Well, you guessed it. It was off to the working world, where I spent hour after hour creating marketing campaigns. 

I was born a dreamer, but turning my dreams into reality wasn’t always easy. 

In April 2018, that all changed. I got laid off, went through a breakup, and realized I had no place to live. To say I was lost, well, that’s an understatement. It felt like rock bottom. But a couple of months, a few temp jobs, and several chapters of 52 Bad Boyfriend Stories later, I walked out those revolving office doors and into my new life as a digital nomad. 

Think: Flight from Boston (AKA my hometown) to Thailand—long with lots of layovers. 

life was safe,
formulaic,
predictable.

my story

my best days are spent helping you prepare for takeoff. 

and a Sony a6000 in my hand. And even when times get tough (try traveling to Rio de Janeiro only knowing English), I’m grateful for every single experience.

Some days I explore the Italian countryside with strangers who become lifetime friends.

Other days, I take transcontinental calls with clients in bustling Parisian cafes. But,

in my head

with dreams

These days, I travel the world

finding meaning through travel

Breaking out of society and finding freedom was when I was finally able to see clearly: You ARE the designer of your life. 

Free to try something new, to make mistakes, to fall down and get back up again, to live free of judgment, and accept yourself for exactly who you are and love all of your flaws. To listen to your heart and ask yourself what it is you truly want. 

It wasn't long ago I was sitting where you are right now.

To travel the world, live in a global apartment, bungalow, lodge, van, teepee, or ship.




and witness the faces who’ve acquired pure joy and own absolutely nothing. 


Confused and unclear where I was on my path and where it was heading.

To not be bound by any rules unless they are your own.

To meet others and embrace an unknown culture, one where the rules of society are painted differently,

i inspire you to create 

I found I could create whatever art I wanted. I could write, photograph, and use the world as my personal canvas that’s continually evolving, growing, and changing. 

I encourage you to welcome strangers with open arms, fall in love with a moment you’ll hold onto forever, live a much simpler life, and find clarity on your life’s purpose.

your own

RIPPLE EFFECT.
