I’m a former assistant teacher turned globetrotting writer and speaker.

Not too long ago, I took a tremendous leap of faith with no money to follow my passion for travel and live abroad, and I’m now working a “dream job” as a London-based travel writer/journalist for the likes of CNN Travel, National Geographic Travel, BBC Travel and more. I’m flown everywhere from Argentina to The Maldives doing what I love, dispelling the myth that living your wildest dreams is only reserved for the lucky or super-rich. I now use my ongoing story and education background to teach and inspire others well beyond the classroom.


I’ve done keynote speeches and led seminars for grade schools, universities and organizations, covering everything from breaking into the media industry for university students; fun geography presentations for schoolchildren and finding clarity and courage for personal development groups. I also coach inspiring travel writers who too want to live a life of world travel and get paid for it.
