A grand adventure
In 2016, I spent 6 months backpacking around Europe. My solo journey began in Dublin, trailing down into western continental Europe to learn, connect, and challenge myself. Learning languages, living in new ways, and discovering layers of myself I'd never had time to embrace.

Wandering sometimes leads to exactly the right place
Born & raised in small-town midwest USA, I voraciously consumed books about faraway places and dreamed about worlds beyond. It turned out that those dreams were leading me somewhere.
In 2016 I found myself at a brick wall of exhaustion and dissatisfaction, so I dusted those dreams off and booked myself a 1-way flight to Ireland. I spent 6 months backpacking around Europe, learning and experiencing as much as this beautiful world would let me. I studied permaculture, tutored English, couchsurfed, hitchhiked, fell in love, taught yoga, housesat, co-authored a book on authentic happiness, and enjoyed a whole list of other incredible experiences along the way. Ultimately it led me to where I am today, living in Paris and engaging in a variety of fascinating projects and initiatives.
I'm passionate about bringing people together and sharing stories in meaningful ways. In whatever I do, I tend to follow a golden thread of connection and helping. Whether it's laughing over language-learning fumbles, inspiring and sharing ideas to change the future, or writing about something to improve peoples' lives.
