This website was created to document my travels, food and wellness adventures. I give tips & recommendations on places I have visited, I also provide tips on wellness & veganism. In this site, you will find a place to contact me for collaborations, inquire about digital marketing services I can provide you or contact me just to say hello. Thank you for visiting, and I hope you enjoy what you see here.

Let’s Get Personal

I’m a NYC native; born and raised in the Bronx. After graduating from Penn State University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Marketing, I went on to pursue a career in Digital Marketing for 5 years. In 2016, I decided to leave corporate America and do something more meaningful and fun. I became a nutrition coach, personal trainer, yoga instructor, and recently added Foreign English Teacher to my list of skills.

Why a foreign English teacher? Well, ever since I was in high school and learned that people traveled for work and school, I wanted to experience this either by a study abroad program or work opportunity. Unfortunately, circumstances in life, fear, self sabotage and horrible excuses prevented me from fulfilling this dream, until now. 2019 was the year that I was going to stop making excuses, stick to a plan and see the world.

After reading several blogs, I realized teaching English was the easiest way to travel while still earning an income. So, here I am traveling & living my best life! Most of my wanderlust centers around vegan food, culture, travel, health, and wellness, but you’ll find a lot of reflections on the site as well. I hope this blog inspires you to explore new places and to never settle for anything less than what you are capable of offering the world.
