I write. I travel. And I'm eager to help others see more of the world.

It all began with a high school trip to Italy. That led to a semester abroad in Madrid, Spain, which translated into a life in Barcelona, Spain and (briefly) Japan.

My mantra: Be guided by incurable curiosity and never let anyone or anything prevent you from experiencing the wonders this big, bold, beautiful world has to offer.

In addition to my site, you can find my travel writing, tips, and guides at Travel + Leisure, Untapped Cities, and Trip by Skyscanner. My news reporting lives at PBS NewsHour and School Stories. I’m currently working on a children's travel book.

Seeking inspiration for an upcoming trip? I suggest the travel chronicles of Anthony Bourdain, Tim Cahill, Truman Capote, Joan Didion, Laurie Lee, Jan Morris, and Sara Vowell.
