We live in an era of cluttered inboxes, browsers, and brains. Despite all of the apps, books, and articles telling us how to be happier and more productive, our lives feel busier than ever.

As a writer, I aim to cut through the noise and deliver inspirational stories in an easy-to-consume way. I want to provide readers with the information they need to feel confident pursuing their goals, whether that’s to take a short day hike, go on a solo trip, or make a career change.

I’ve already helped thousands of readers at GoAbroad.com make decisions about traveling abroad, from how to pack for an internship to getting over culture shock. I’ve shared the experience of traveling off the beaten path in Southern Utah in ROVA magazine and provided tips for physicians who want to experience working in a new culture.

Through my writing, I want to help people feel like their best selves, getting after whatever they want most in life. The best way to do this is by creating information that’s easy to understand and easy to access, and a little bit fun, too.

I’m based in Salt Lake City, and when I’m not thinking about making people’s lives easier, I’m disconnecting from it all and getting outside. I love hiking, climbing, and camping; I get really excited over wildlife sightings; and I always bring enough snacks to share.
