After growing up in rural Pennsylvania, I migrated to Sydney in 2007 to complete uni at UNSW. I fell in love with Australia and devoted my years thereafter to travel and ensuring that I could secure residency and eventually citizenship, which I gained in 2015. Now based on the Northern Beaches, I couldn't be happier to live the beaches lifestyle.

Blogging began as a passion project for me; I love photography, writing and travel so to combine the two was the ultimate goal for me. I travelled through the US, Canada, New Zealand and Europe before I really began to explore my loves and began a blog in conjunction with an Instagram to showcase my photography. Over the years, it has evolved and grown into a lifestyle and travel blog, where I can share myself, my photography and the things I love with the world.

I also hope that I can serve as an inspiration to those who have gone through or are going through hardship - whether that is physical, mental, emotional. I hope that by sharing my stories, and what I have learned, as well as how far I have come, that people can feel comfort and motivation, especially young women.

Photography and love of social media has led me to work with numerous brands, both on a regular basis or one-off, to create relevant, beautiful and innovative content. I enjoy working with brands that I believe in and would never work with a brand I don't agree with. Most of my collaborations are with apparel, swimwear and beauty brands, but I also enjoy working with yoga studios, gyms, individuals, hotels/villas and tours. Open to ideas and I am extremely passionate about giving brands a new perspective and fresh content. Love hearing from new brands and opportunities all the time - please feel free to get in touch via the form below.
