about me

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by my page! I hope you can use it to find inspiration for your next outdoor adventure.

I was born in Santa Cruz, a small surf town south of the city lights of San Francisco. I lived in California until the age of 10, when my family relocated to the Pacific Northwest.

My passion for the outdoors came rather late, and my first backpacking trip wasn’t until I was in my first year of college. Every summer I spent on the Puget Sound at summer camp where  I grew in my creativity and love for story telling. 

I graduated the University of Washington in 2016, and moved back to California to pursue a career in outdoor education and youth development. In addition to my role as an educator, I was a surf instructor, teen adventure director, and mentor. It allowed me to travel around California, pursuing new adventures like climbing  in Joshua Tree National Park, and going on my first solo trip to Grand Tetons National Park. Its sparked a growing eagerness for the outdoors, producing a new life goal of mine- to travel to all the National Parks in America. 

I currently reside in Santa Cruz, California. I write about my adventures, and love creating things that spark joy when I’m outside. You may find me surfing the waves of Santa Cruz, driving the roads of Highway 1 during golden hour, or searching for hipster coffee shops to sit, sip, and plan my next trip.  

Thank you for stopping by my blog- I hope that you find it useful in planning your next exploration and that it inspires you to go somewhere!
