About Me

I’m a Southern California native who once upon a time decided to enter the world of New York City finance. I survived four years as a cubicle dweller working in corporate marketing for a private equity firm. Over time, I began to realize that I was living out someone else’s plan. This was not the life that I envisioned for myself. So, in September of 2013, I quit. I booked a ticket to Bangkok and started to travel around Southeast Asia – solo.

I took the money that I had spent the last few years saving and used that to fund my travels while always working as a travel writer and running a digital design studio – entirely from the road.

As a former cubicle dweller who felt chained to a desk in a career that I truly didn’t love, I know what it’s like to be sitting in a 9 to 5 daydreaming of some place elsewhere. I created this space on the Internet in hopes of inspiring others to not settle for a life they don’t love, to take chase after the career they want and live an extraordinary life.

The Diaries of Wanderlust are my stories. If you have questions, please get in touch via the contact page.

Happy travels!
