A little about me…

I grew up in a small community in southern Wisconsin and spent much of my childhood outside riding bikes, swimming in lakes, searching for frogs and caterpillars, running through the forest, camping in the backyard, and watching the stars from the rooftop of my parent’s house.  It’s no surprise that as an adult, my love of nature continued. I soon discovered a passion for hiking, photography, and travel and it wasn’t long before I found myself moving across the country to pursue all three of these from the Pacific Northwest. After 5 1/2 years as an Oregonian, through my minimalism journey, I decided to change the way I lived my life and now am enjoying the nomadic life of a traveler, exploring this great big world we live in and having many adventures along the way!
