I’m a gay traveler, foodie and lawyer, with a serious case of wanderlust. I’ve been fortunate enough to travel full-time (for six months as a backpacker around Southeast Asia in 2015), during my education and through work/during vacations (gotta pay those pesky student loans). I’m always seeking my next adventure and currently seeking to balance a legal career and travel. Here’s a bit about me.
In 2008, I boarded a plane for Costa Rica. It was my first travel experience outside of the United States and absolutely changed my life. Since then, I’ve become a global junkie. I’m addicted to the world and everything it has to offer. I love meeting people, learning new languages and exploring cultures through food, film, fashion, literature, art and politics. I’ve lived in Buenos Aires, London, New York, Yangon and Mumbai – taking every opportunity to travel from those bases and explore local scenes. It’s safe to say I’m addicted to travel (I’m also addicted to coffee but that’s another matter entirely). When I grow up, I want to be like Anthony Bourdain.
I’m also an adventurer and risk-taker. There is no place that I won’t (eventually) go and nothing that I won’t try. The more off-the-beaten path a place is, the more I’m going to like it. Street food is awesome and a meal with a local is even better. I’m also gay and love to explore a city’s gay side (they all have one), meet other gay travelers (across the entire LGBTQ+ spectrum) and learn from local LGBTQ people what it’s like for them, the challenges they face, etc. What better way to explore a city then through a local’s eyes or by putting away that map/guidebook and getting lost?
