I run the budget travel-centered live events for Nomadic Matt. I've been on the team since 2013 and absolutely love getting people to break out of their comfort zone and travel the world. Before working with Matt, I lived all over the world doing random things. I studied in Qatar and St Vincent and the Grenadines, taught in South Korea and northeastern Thailand, and farmed in Costa Rica and Zambia. I lived around the world for under 10k a year from ages 21-26 and those experiences shaped me into who I am today - a lover of people. I adore meeting friends around the world, chatting with their families at their kitchen table, attending weddings, and grocery shopping. I think travel has the chance to really change the world, and we strive to make it as accessible as possible to as many people as we can at Nomadic Matt. I'm happy to be a part of that effort.
