Welcome to This SoCal’ed Life. She is a twenty-something year-old creative who’s never seen life from a cubicle – and never plans to!

She started out travel blogging on her site Travels in Translation back in 2012 when living in Hong Kong and she has been featured all over from National Geographic to Buzzfeed.
