About Me


I've been writing for as long as I can remember. I also have a passion for sports, fitness, traveling, adventure, art, music, dancing, baking, and helping others by sharing my experiences & words of advice.

My articles have been published on Thought CatalogPuckerMob, and Elite Daily. Check out my published articles page to read them. Recently, I was featured in Boston Voyager Magazine's Most Inspiring Stories section. Check it out here.

I have so many stories to tell, so much advice to give, and I truly hope people can find comfort in my writings.
