I’ve spent most of my life growing up in Arizona. The first video I made was in high school where I filmed my friends riding our bikes over little dirt ramps - sometimes getting air. Fast forward to now and I get to make videos for my job!  I still live in Arizona but now I’m in Tempe instead of Glendale. It’s where all of my travels and adventures start. Sometimes I only make it as far as the desert just outside of town but other times I explore cities across the US like Seattle, Los Angles and New York.  I love getting to see new places and meet the people who live there. There's something in me that craves getting outside of my comfort zone here in America and I'm at the point in my life where there's nothing holding me back. My chance to take a gap year and travel the world is now or never. So, I've decided to take the jump and combine my passions for documentary storytelling, making videos, and travel. I’ve never faced more unknowns in my life, but I’ve also never felt more convinced that I need to do something. I’m diving in headfirst into making this trip happen.
