About Me

My personal blog has evolved from a travel blog to a blog about my work and life in Chicago. I was fortunate enough to be able to travel in 2009 – 2010 and kept a record of my thoughts here.

In 2009, I traveled through Eastern Europe and volunteered in Ghana for several months. After a brief trip home for the holidays, I went back out in 2010 on an Around the World ticket through South America, Australia and New Zealand, Southeast Asia and South Africa. The goal was to keep it simple- live out of backpacks, stay in hostels, meet interesting people, see the sights and experience the culture of each location.

Posts from 2009 – 2011 reflect my travel, while the more recent posts are about things I’ve learned working in marketing and technology.

I work in marketing for a technology startup in Chicago. Since starting in 2012, I’ve learned so much about technology, marketing practices and tools, as well as event organizing, small business operations, and social media. This is my space to share what I’ve learned in an attempt to help others and just record my progress. I hope to never stop learning!

Because it’s worth mentioning, Disclaimer: this blog is my personal blog and does not reflect the opinions of my employer.
