I'm a traveler in search of those life-changing experiences. My goal is to learn as much as I can of the world in order to create the person I want to be, and I can't do that by staying put! Through creativity and deeper perspectives on travel, I aim to show those also having trouble with self-identity how to achieve real inner growth in every experience. I'm up for anything weird, wild, and wonderful. Follow my growth spurts around the world!

About Me

I’m an artist, travel writer, photographer, freelance writer, college graduate, thru-hiker, entrepreneur, yes-woman… I wear a lot of hats. If learning how to do something new was represented by my closet, it would be overflowing with all the hats. This is because I have a seemingly insatiable appetite for learning, knowledge, and self-improvement. Thanks to the internet, we can all become teachers and gurus of our trade. I realized that I could teach others how I’ve ultimately grown doing what I love, in hopes that they will begin their own growth journey.

Let’s Grow There is not only who I am as a brand, it’s my mantra. Too often we travel or vacation somewhere and forget to learn, forget to soak in an experience for everything its worth. In the US, travel is often hard to make happen due to the work schedule of the average American. Travel becomes a necessary escape from our daily lives. But that’s not all it has to be.

I’m all about making a conscious effort to have some sort of change, some small transformation whenever I travel because I really believe that travel is the ultimate teacher. There is so much to learn out there in the world from other peoples, cultures, religion, etc. You know the saying, “Fill your life with experiences, not things”? It’s such good advice for building a life you can feel proud and fulfilled about.

I decided I didn’t want to travel just to collect that coveted stamp in my passport, or that perfect Instagram shot (gotta love those) that all say, “I was there!” I don’t want my audience to necessarily care about where I’m going next, but where they’re going next. I want you to be inspired to travel because you need some you-time. You’re looking to get something different and life-changing out of travel, to become a more self-aware, well-rounded human. You value experience above all else, and you want to collect those most of all.

So think of me as just like you, on a journey for real inner growth infused with purpose, lusting for more than just to wander. I hope that you decide to grow with me, because this is just the beginning. I’m not just telling you how to grow through travel, I’m growing right along with you, my friend.

Because when we become better as individuals, we become better as a human race.

Grow with every experience.
