Welcome to my website. Regardless of who you are (a family member, long-lost friend, or a complete stranger), I just want to say thank you for stopping by.
I am a 23-year-old journalist with an undergrad in Broadcast Journalism from Ryerson University. I have previously worked with Discovery Channel, Verge: Travel with Purpose Magazine and Sympatico.ca, now theLoop.ca. I am currently a part of the prestigious Erasmus Mundus Journalism programme doing an MA in Journalism, Media and Globalization with a specialism in Business and Finance Reporting. I’ll admit that’s a pretentious title, but it’s an awesome degree; so, if you are considering it, apply!
I am a proud Canadian from Toronno (sic), but my wanderlust has taken me to all of the six non-frigid continents, although I am determined to go Antarctica one day. I have lived in India, Ethiopia, Denmark and Australia, and travelled to an additional 24 countries (25 if you count Scotland as a separate one). I am a travel blogger, a hopeless documentarian and a social media addict, determined to share the highlights of my adventures with friends, family, fellow-bloggers and Googlers around the world.
But, all play and no work also makes one dull, right? In my attempts to keep life even more interesting, I am always seeking out ways to make my travels meaningful. I have volunteered with Habitat for Humanity in Guatemala, studied Spanish in Costa Rica, and taken a travel-writing course in Prague. Also, with sheer luck and some hard work, I have managed to get into a postgraduate program that takes me to three countries over the course of two years.
Talking and socializing are two of my favourite things, even if it’s over the Internet. I am always keen on meeting and e-meeting new people, so if you have a travel tip, a suggestion, a compliment or a question, feel free to leave a comment below or e-mail me.
I am currently working at Time Out Singapore, in love with my Canon 60D, and probably planning my next adventure.
