Hello and welcome to my blog! I’m excited to have it up finally and running.
For the past few years, I’ve enjoyed contributing to a variety of publications and on a variety of subjects. Though this continues to bring me a lot of joy, I always knew that I wanted to have my space where I can freely talk about the things I’m passionate about like food, travel, adventure, philanthropy, and the communications industry.
I plan on posting something new once a week and occasionally in between. I will also post info whenever I come across something adventurous you can participate in. Please don’t hesitate to share your adventures with me and I look forward to sharing mine with you.
Life is about daring to live your biggest dreams, stepping outside of your comfort zone, and evolving into the best version of yourself. I hope that when you read my blog, you will feel inspired to go out into the world to taste something new, see someplace different and live a more inspired life.
Thank you for joining the adventure!
