An art director by trade, I work on advertising campaigns by day and spend my free time looking up plane tickets. I've got this insatiable need to see the world, and I'm on a mission to do it.

Resident of the Road started out as personal journal of mine. I was eager to document my experiences as I encountered the unfamiliar. Somewhere along the way, it morphed into a public project of sorts. As I've delighted in new cultures and embraced the joys and heartbreaks of the world, this blog has evolved with me. My sincerest hope is that Resident of the Road inspires you to travel, no matter your budget or experience.

Traveling is just as much a crash course on yourself as it is the world- my experiences have taught me that much. No matter the adventure, it's never enough.

May we travel deeper, not wider.
