I am grateful for being home schooled K-12th grade, because I was taught how to be a self-sufficient hard worker. From there I graduated cum laude with a BFA from the Academy of Art University.

After college I worked in the arts and hospitality industries:

  • In the San Francisco Bay Area I ran a five star bed and breakfast.
  • I managed a custom picture framing warehouse.
  • Four times I've been commissioned by businesses for site-specific art installations.
  • I illustrated inventions for U.S. patent applications.
  • Awarded Employee of the Month while working at the Ahwahnee, a five diamond hotel, in Yosemite National Park.

One pivotal solo adventure, was a month-long motorcycle road trip. I loved being on the road meeting people, seeing wild condors, camping out, hostel hopping and staying at monasteries. I'm made to travel on foot with a backpack or on two wheels!

I love writing about lightweight, environmentally conscious travel, be it backpacking, motocamping, tiny house living...
