About me

I was delivered in nine minutes during a blustery Boston snowstorm, ready to leap out and discover the world. Since the day I can remember, I’ve sought out adventure.
Traveling is the action that makes me feel most alive. Traveling satisfies all my senses. It is a full exposure to diverse colors, fabrics, flavors, cultures, terrains--and if you are open, moments can transform into unexpected and unforgettable itineraries.
Each trip brings me closer to the earth and creates a deeper sense of self.
