My life of traveling started on August 5, 2013 I moved to Reykjavik, Iceland to get a Master’s degree in Viking and Medieval Norse studies. I started this blog (then called An American in Iceland) to share my Icelandic adventures and new found analog photography habit. But after a year and a half, I started going other places, too. I spent four months in Denmark, a month in Finland, dashed through Estonia and Latvia, took a week off in Austria, day-tripped Sweden celebrated Christmas my partner/now-husband’s Finnish family in Toronto, and snuck in a pair of visits to Scotland in between all that to visit my partner. I finished my MA in Reykjavík in May 2015 and came home to Maryland soon after. Then, I moved on my own to Nashville for two years to work for a historical association. I loved working for this organization and exploring middle American, but I was ready to go back to Europe, and in fall 2017, I headed back to Iceland on a Fulbright grant to study Icelandic as a second language and research Icelandic museums (but not before eloping in a park in Nashville). Back in Reykjavík, I started an ongoing podcast project to explore the world through museums, Museums in Strange Places. In May 2018, I moved to Warsaw, Poland to finally live with my husband after four years of long-distance relationship. I’m focusing now on my podcast and other projects related to museums and travel. Available for freelance work in writing, museums, and podcasting.
