Northern California raised, Central coast educated, and Southern California transplant, I have always loved the diversity this beautiful state has to offer. Growing up always on the go, I love hiking, snowboarding, boating, traveling, and exploring every chance I can get. I have a passion for all forms of art, but painting, cooking, crocheting, and photography are my favorite outlets of expression. I can never get enough of time spent with friends and family, whether watching sports, taking a road trip, drinking beer, or dancing the night away at a show.
I strongly believe that happiness can be found in the most unexpected places, and creativity stems from synthesizing unique experiences into something new. From local destinations to National Parks to international wandering, I strive to be on the go and open for any new adventures that may come my way. Every place I have visited has had an impact on my love for the outdoors, designing spaces, and creating new experiences for others.
Almost anywhere you can find me, I’ll be with my dog, Kalia. People talk about crazy cat ladies, but I have become the crazy dog lady and am more than happy to be so. She has taught me to be a rescue advocate and breed-stereotype shatterer, and to not let people’s perceptions stop you from prancing in the sand.
