I freelance for Pimsleur, a language learning company based in Concord, MA.
After college, I had an opportunity to leave on a nine-month gap year program with fifteen other students. Since then, I’ve been somewhat obsessed with unfamiliar places. After traveling to over twenty cities and learning skills like setting up a tent in the middle of a torrential downpour in the Costa Rican rainforest and making a mug out of clay from a local potter in Granada, Spain, I moved to Los Angeles, California. There I discovered the wonders of the desert in Cuyama Valley, and the breathtaking, almost surreal, drive through the hills and valleys to Ojai. I fell in love with the surfers of Palos Verdes and the snow-capped mountains of Lake Tahoe. A year later, I moved to the dynamic and vibrant city of Zürich, where I spent weekends learning how to snowboard in Crans Montana, sleeping in an igloo in Engelberg, and solo camping with the cows of the mountains.
A wise man once said to me that telling your story, with the intention to encourage, inspire, and connect with others, is the greatest gift you can give to the world.
