I’ll always remember the night my Costa Rican host mom woke me up in a panic to help her kill a snake that was running rampant in the middle of our jungle home. It was this homestay at thirteen that first threw me into the throngs of the travel-obsessed.
From there my interest in other cultures led me to pursue a degree in Anthropology at Cornell University. I spent a year living abroad in Italy, learning the language and eating my weight in pasta; learned the importance of a minimalist lifestyle and the true meaning of spicy while backpacking through Southeast Asia; and spent the last four years falling in love with Spain, from the Galicia’s traditional bagpipes and octopus in the north to Andalucia’s renowned flamenco and jamon iberico in the South.
Now I’m back in my native Southern California ready to begin a new adventure!
