Whenever I visit a new city, I tend to approach my itinerary with design in mind — What are the city’s most beautifully designed hotels, restaurants, and attractions? Where can I shop for art and design-centric items? For those travelers who do the same, I’ve created a few weekend itineraries for Paste, starting with Chicago and San Francisco. Stay tuned for more city guides.
Growing up, I always knew I wanted to be a writer — specifically a travel writer. I think a lot of young people have that dream, but like a lot of people, I’ve found myself writing about everything but travel over the years. So it feels like a special treat when I get to write about my adventures abroad. This recent article in Paste looks at one of my favorite cities in the world, Lisbon. Between its distinctively strong coffee, bottles of crisp vinho verde, and sticky sweet ginjinha, I literally drank my way through the city — and I’ll teach you how to do the same.
I love playing tour guide in Charleston, so it was only natural to write about my favorite hidden Holy City spots for Breathe magazine. Take a gander over here.
