The travel blogger and creator of Live Like it’s the Weekend, shared with us some facts about her, make sure to take a look at her blog for travel inspo.

Age: 34

City you live in: Los Angeles

Most recent city visited…  Tulum, Mexico

A typical day in my life includes… Writing, photo editing, emails, brainstorming new projects, and getting out of my house to explore and create content.

I was born… a dreamer

When I was younger, I wanted to be… a professional figure skater, and then later the Editor in Chief of a fashion magazine.

My first job was… Serving hot dogs and lemonades to tourists at a food cart in Freeport, Maine.

My favorite thing about traveling is… The endless new experiences and taking in all of the beauty in nature.

I’m currently listening to… Polo & Pan, Attom, Khruangbin, and a LOT of old funk music.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be… my parents who passed away 4 years ago.

One thing I cannot travel without… my camera, duh!

I’m inspired by… so many things. Music, interior design, photography and film that evokes emotion, and other unique creators I find daily on social media.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be… Giving everyone on Earth the basics to have their simple needs met like enough food, clean water, a roof over their heads, and access to healthcare.

The perfect day would be… A slow morning over coffee in a sunny tropical destination, followed by an afternoon of scuba diving, laughing with friends, and capped off by the best meal of my life and margaritas!

My favorite place I’ve visited… Morocco, Mexico and Portugal. Sorry can’t just choose one!

My top 3 bucket list destinations: Still dying to visit French Polynesia, Namibia, and Oman.

My life… is an adventure!

I’m currently working on… Planning out 2021 travels (fingers crossed), and launching more photography prints for my fine art print shop.

Always… look around the next corner in a new country. You’ll never know what you might find!

Never… Leave for a trip without double checking you have confirmed bookings for each flight leg…just trust me on this one.

Favorite quote… “And if travel is like love, it is, in the end, mostly because it’s a heightened state of awareness, in which we are mindful, receptive, undimmed by familiarity and ready to be transformed. That is why the best trips, like the best love affairs, never really end.” – Pico Iyer

Biggest dream… To build my dream home by the ocean filled with mementos from my travels…and write a book!

My pet peeve(s)… Airport goers who don’t have a concept of personal space.
