About

My name is Allie and I grew up in San Clemente, California.  My passions are photography, surfing, writing, and learning about different cultures through traveling.  My love for photo and travel has led me to click away in Italy, Egypt, Spain, and across the U.S.–but I always have a thirst to capture more of the world.

The travel bug first bit me when I did a home-stay in Costa Rica at thirteen and continued when I chose to study for a year in Italy during college. After graduating, I returned to California where I fell right back into the surf culture that I grew up in, and found my place in the adventure travel industry. However, after some years I couldn’t resist the pang of wanderlust calling my name, and I  decided to relocate to Spain for a new chapter of travel adventures.
