I am a recovering tax attorney who has worked in nonprofit and higher ed fundraising for more than a decade while also dabbling in travel blogging and writing. Despite not traveling overseas for the first time until I was 25, I have been to nearly 70 countries and all seven continents. Born and raised in Minnesota, I am currently based in Washington, D.C. and have a habit of rooting for sports teams that find ways to lose in devastating fashion. I recently published a travel memoir, Finding Katya: How I Quit Everything to Backpack the Former Soviet States - the story of my 13-month journey through all 15 former Soviet states.
