A Bit About Me

Welcome to my website! I am a seasoned traveler traveling to over 25 countries around the world for pleasure and work. I am always wonder-struck each time I help people plan their escape and embark on a new destination. With eyes opened, I am inspired, challenged at times, and reminded of why travel is inspiring in the first place. I am a multi-talented artist, craftsman, and teacher. Throughout my life, I have been dedicated to spreading positivity, beauty, and well-being through various mediums such as art, clay, jewelry, yoga, and writing.

 

I have had the privilege of creating meaningful works of art, such as whimsical retablos for healing, hand-built clay prayer vessels that found a home at ALS headquarters, and spiritual jewelry designed with antique relics.

 

Alongside my artistic pursuits, I share my insights and inspiration through writing and teaching yoga and meditation workshops as a certified mindfulness meditation teacher and art teacher.

 

After college, I continue to learn, study, and create. I am proud to have studied at Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) main campus in Savannah and Lacoste, France. Join me on this journey of uplifting others and creating more beauty in the world.

As an independent agent of Uniglobe Travel Services, let's connect and plan your next adventure together!
