I was born and raised in the beautiful yet usually gloomy PNW (Seattle) and later moved to San Diego for university. I was first bit with the travel bug summer of 2012 when I went on a volunteer project to Costa Rica. As soon as I returned I started looking into studying abroad. I spent the Spring of 2013 at Deakin University in Melbourne, Australia and Fall 2013 at Universidad Autonoma Barcelona, Spain.
Returning back to the sunny city of San Diego I spent the next 1.5 years finishing my degree, re-exploring the city, neighboring states, as well as a little bit of Mexico.
After graduating I completed a 3 month solo backpacking trip through Europe (video on the homepage) and now I am living in Arequipa, Peru teaching English.
