GIVEAWAY + What's to Come

Happy Friday!

I'm excited to team up with Canvas on the Cheap to host a giveaway to thank you all for reading and continuing to show your support for my art. Before I get into the details of the giveaway, I wanted to share some of my thoughts of my journey with you.

When I first started writing on Tumblr, I was so inspired. I guess it had something to do with being young and naive, and getting my heart broken by anything and anyone. Fast forward to a couple years and I felt so unmotivated to write and create art - partly because my dream career wasn't what I thought it was and my passions started to change. It's not to say I no longer loved writing, but my interests expanded, and I finally feel as if I know what road I'm taking.

Today, I am a huge advocate of finding a balance between work and play in order to achieve happiness. I've always wanted to travel, but it's only in the last few years I've been able to afford it financially, while finding a happy medium between my job, exploring and making art along the way. My innate love for nature led me to my passion for sustainability and social good, which goes hand in hand with my pursuit of living life to the fullest. I am the CCO and Editor-in-Chief for Earthling Mag, a digital magazine and lifestyle brand designed to inspire mindful living. Adding these on top of my 9-5 has made life pretty wild, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

With that said, in addition to my writing, I will be showcasing more of my photography and excursions. I have a few trips lined up for this year and I'll be writing about some of my favorite ones in the past such as Portland, ME; California road trip; Providence + Newport, RI; and Montreal, Canada. As always, if there's something you'd like to see on this website, please let me know below in the comments.
