About Me


Who am I?

  • I’m an urban-dwelling 30-something who lives and works  in Chicago, Illinois. Currently on a wild and exciting journey into self-employment that I'd love to share with you.

  • I travel as often as humanly possible!

  • I’m a multifaceted artist dedicated to making creativity a daily practice. I’m a writer, visual artist, actor, and musician.

  • I’m a huge nerd. Probability of Lord of the Rings references appearing in my posts is astronomically high.

  • I firmly believe that the singular of “sheep” should be “shoop.”

  • I’m queer as hell and not shy about it. (Bisexual, arospec, nonbinary, and genderfluid for those of you who like the terminology!)  My pronouns are they/them.

  • Trans women are women. Trans men are men. Black Lives Matter. Reproductive rights are human rights. Homophobes, racists, and misogynists need not subscribe.

How do I like to Travel?

  • Frequently. I average 4-5 trips a year depending on my budgets. I like to make at least one of those an international trip! Join in and I'll teach you how to make the post of your travel time and funds.

  • Light. I only ever travel with carry-on luggage. Stick around and I’ll teach you how!

  • Solo. At least half of my annual vacations are solo trips. This began from a place of “I can’t find anyone to go with me so I’m just going to go,” and grew into the best thing I have ever done (and continue to do) for myself. Follow along with me to demystify solo travel! 

What Else Will We Explore?

  • Self-discovery and self-empowerment

  • Creativity and art

  • Boundaries and self-care

  • Self-employment and freelancing

  • Mental health support and strategies

  • Everyday habits for fulfillment and happiness

  • ...and anything else that sparks our interest!
