About me

I am obsessed with travel, adventure, and doing things to get out of my comfort zone. I graduated from the business school at Indiana University in 2016, but have since lived in Austin, TX and have explored many places around the world.

After a four-month study abroad semester in Singapore, I knew I wanted to travel long-term and without constraints. After quitting my "real-world" job in October 2017, I embarked on a 9-month solo backpacking trip to 12 countries, including Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Taiwan, China, The Philippines, Vietnam, Laos, Hong Kong, and New Zealand. During this trip I started my own travel blog and podcast, Edge of Comfort.

Since returning back home to Chicago, I've continued working on Edge of Comfort. I also started working full-time as a Product Specialist at a luxury travel company. I help design, research, and manage over 30 luxury small group trips to destinations in Europe.

When I'm not working or traveling, I'm training for ultramarathon trail runs, attempting to cook vegan recipes, reading, practicing photography, or scanning Google Flights to figure out my next trip.
