I’m an LA-based travel blogger, digital creator, Pangea Dreams retreat leader, and self-taught travel hacker. People that know me describe me as a big ball of energy that wears a smile on my face about 90% of the time 🙂 I’m someone that values freedom, adventure, and human connection over anything in life. Thanks to this job of mine, I’ve built a life where I get to live out these passions everyday, whether I’m home blogging or out in the world exploring. For that, I’m forever grateful!
My blogging journey all began in 2016, when I set off on a year long trip around the world with my partner, Aaron. I had just graduated college and planned to become a teacher, but knew I needed to see the world before I put down any roots at home. So, I gathered ALL my money, booked a 1 way ticket to Thailand, and embarked on the most life changing year of my life. 20 countries, over 50 cities, and countless flights later- I learned what it was like to truly LIVE in the present moment, and knew that my love for travel would only continue to grow deeper. So here I am, years later, still hustling and carrying out four job titles to make this crazy dream job a reality! But I seriously wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s all apart of the journey 🙂
About Light Travels
Light Travels has gone through quite the evolution over the years! Initially, it was a place where I shared travel hacks and budget guides, in hopes to educate others how affordable travel can actually be. During my year long trip around the world, I ended up spending LESS money than I would have spent living in LA. After coming to this realization, that’s when I knew!! I needed to share all my money hacks and findings with the world- especially with my friends and family growing more and more mystified by my travel lifestyle.
Even though you’ll still find travel hacks, tips, and guides on Light Travels, I plan to embrace a new style of traveling in the upcoming years, which will inevitably affect the posts you see on here! I want to be more mindful about the footprint I leave on this world and want to leave a positive mark wherever I go. That being said….I have a lot of exciting projects in the works and hope I can inspire others to join me on this conscious travel journey 🙂
