I'm a writer, photographer, traveller and coffee lover. This is a travel & lifestyle blog about charting a less conventional path through life. I believe that travel can change your life - when I was a teenager I spent a year and a half living aboard a sailboat with my family. We sailed along the east coast of North America and the Bahamas. I've had a serious case of wanderlust ever since. Check out my blog and sign up for less ordinary letters. Thanks for stopping by!
About Me

My Story

I’m a writer and photographer with a focus on telling true stories well. My articles and essays have appeared in numerous publications, including the Globe and Mail, Bella Grace and Mabel. I studied journalism and creative writing at Humber College. I also earned a degree in Political Science from the University of Toronto.

My love of travel emerged when I was a teenager and spent more than a year living aboard a sailboat with my family. We sailed from Nova Scotia, Canada to Florida and the Bahamas, before returning to Ontario, Canada. We endured wild storms, walked white sand beaches and met some incredible people. The trip left a deep mark on my life, one that I continue to explore to this day. I’m currently writing a memoir about this experience.

I’m charting a course towards a life less ordinary. I currently have a day job in communications and I take every opportunity I can to travel and explore my hometown of Toronto. I have visited Amsterdam, London, New York, San Francisco and Portland, Oregon. I’ve also hiked in the rainforest of Vancouver Island, British Columbia and toured the wine country of Prince Edward County, Ontario. I spend my weekends exploring the many neighbourhoods of Toronto, Canada.

I share tips and insights as I create a life of my own making.
