Q: Where did you grow up?

I grew up in Highland Park, IL. Right around the age of twelve, I would entertain myself by carrying around a little video camera and using it to document everything. I would edit the footage and make short videos to show my friends. This was before the big social media boom.

 

Q: What is your favorite international city?

Bath because of its beautiful architecture and rich history. I loved living in a totally walkable city surrounded by vast countryside.

Q: What is your secret talent?

It’s not really a talent, but I know a lot of useless facts. I’m a great addition to trivia nights.

 

Q: If you could eat only one country’s style of food for the rest of your life, which would it be?

Mexican food for sure. I love especially love dishes that include avocado, and cheese.

 

Q: Complete the sentence: When I grow up I want to __________.

Am I not grown up? Oh, okay.

 

Q: What is your spirit animal?

Probably some sort of woodland creature like a fox.

Q: What is your favorite travel “AHA! moment” or memory?

The first time I ever hiked was in Cornwall. Even though the trail was for beginners, I was very nervous because I’m not an athletic person. I decided that I would take it slow and really soak up the atmosphere. My hike turned into a leisurely walk as I spent most of the time admiring the view. I spotted two people in the distance who were just sitting at the edge. They looked simultaneously isolated from the world yet very much a part of the earth. I sat down and tried to experience the same. I surprised myself, not by my physical ability but because I was able to pause and appreciate the present, which is something I find difficult to do.

 

Q: What is your favorite thing about working for Greenheart Travel?

I’m a storyteller, so I love that a part of my job is to share stories about authentic experiences people have while abroad.
