Hello! I’m a writer and editor with a keen eye for detail and a love for travel, cooking, video games and a good book. I started this blog in college while living and exploring Chicago to catalog all my adventures and continued it while I lived in South Korea for five years teaching English as a second language.

This blog is on hiatus right now as I’m not traveling as much while I adjust to being back in the USA. However, you can still read recaps from my travels before moving back to the states as well as book reviews and podcast episodes I did, transcripts for each episode can be found within the article posts.

If you want to read my most recent work you can find it here.
