I stupidly read all of, The Lonely Plant’s Guide to Marrakech, fear mongering warnings in the back of the book outloud to Sarah, my travel buddy, as we landed in Marrakech. The plane rumbled hitting the ground, and after 24 hours of travelling, delusion and anxiety began to set-in.Read More
In January I went to the opening of Untitled, an art fair that’s new to the Bay Area. As they did in Miami, the fair wildly excited me. It’s more than just an art fair. It’s exclusively contemporary art (which is my jam) and, it’s undoubtedly well curated. The space, Pier 70 sits along the water in San Francisco down the street from the Giants stadium. The flow was almost ethereal. I had never been to the space before but I heard when tech conferences happen there they are dry, filled with crowded booths and not a curated experience.Read More
Growing up in California lends itself to driving. In one day you can go from snowboarding in Tahoe to catching the sunset over the Golden Gate bridge. Road-tripping from one end of the state to the other isn’t uncommon and this weekend I headed up to Bass Lake for a wedding.

Have you made your summer plans yet? If not, head over to Inn Town Campground in Nevada City! As of Monday, they have opened their site reservations starting in July.
I first discovered the project shortly after my exodus from Pittsburgh to Northern California. The leaders of Inn Town Campground also own the The Outside Inn, a quaint motel that sits at the top of the hill in historic Nevada City, deep in the mountains of gold country. The Outside Inn has been run by Erin Thiem and her family for years. Her blog is an incredibly comprehensive and easy-to-read guide to the area, highlighting the eclectic, creative businesses that make it one of the most unique places in the country.Read More
A couple months ago, Dominic and I jumped in the car and headed to Portland, OR. I hadn't been to the city since my my move to Pittsburgh, PA three years prior. Portland is such an amazing city, not only are there unique fun restaurants, bars, arcades and the usual meanderings of any great city, there is also amazing North Western scenery and nature to be had.
Here's a little video we put together and I hope there will be a lot more to come in the new year!Read More
