Hey, I'm Jess

After graduating college last year, I packed up my tent and hiking boots and drove across the U.S., camping and eating and dancing my way out to California and back to my home in Chicago. That wasn't enough though, so after saving up for a few months, I grabbed my backpack and flew to Ireland. After some time hopping around western Europe, I took a job at a university in Nanning, China and set out to explore the southern provinces and Thailand. I'm now back in Dublin, planning my next steps for travel...

My passions include frolicking in national parks, trying every bit of vegetarian food I can get my hands on and scoping out jazz and blue bars in each country I visit. I plan to spend a few more years making my way to new places before heading back to graduate school to study environmental sociology.
