Check out my feature story in the UCDA magazine!


I'm a 27 year old, Arkansas-born, New York City transplant, former American expat in Italy. I have most recently been described as a ball of chaotic energy, which I would have to agree is pretty accurate.

Before making the big jump across "the pond" in 2016, I worked as a marketing and public relations photographer in higher education.

One day I got a phone call from Italy quite literally asking if I would want to pack up and move 6,000 miles away from everything I have ever known. It was an easy decision to decide to make the leap. How could I say no? The next thing I knew I was four suitcases in, everything else shoved in a storage unit, and boarding a plane to a completely new world.

Ironically, it was the "Old World" that captivated me and the “New World” that called me back home.

Follow along with this Arkansas Traveler as I discover what's around the next corner.

My professional passion is melding photography, design and words together to create something beautiful.

Taylor Swift, J. Crew and a party size bag of Cool Ranch Doritos are my most treasured confidants. And a heavy pour of sangiovese.

I'm passionate about discovering and answering questions.

I am in the relentless pursuit of LIFE.

I have no idea what I'm suppose to do in this world, but all I can do is live it and find out.

Thank you for journeying with me.

And as always, 

Ciao for now,
