I'm

I'm just a girl who found a way to take my creative talents on the road. I put the office jail cell and society's expectations behind me to embrace a life of uncertainty and fulfillment.

My intention

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 best days are spent helping you prepare for takeoff.

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,

To not be bound by any rules unless they are your own. To make a home wherever you choose. To live in a global apartment, bungalow, lodge, van, teepee, or ship. To meet locals and embrace an unknown culture, one where the rules of society are painted differently, and witness faces who've acquired pure joy and own nothing.

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 love all of your flaws. To

you are the designer of your life.

I was confused and unclear where I was on my path and where it was heading. It wasn’t until I broke out of society's expectations of me and found freedom that I was finally able to see clearly: 


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, 


live a much simpler life, and find clarity on your life’s purpose.

I inspire you to create your own

listen to your heart and ask yourserlf what you truly want.
