As a freelance writer, restaurant brand manager, certified fitness pro, travel fiend, adventurous food/wine fan and sequin dress collector, I'm on a never-ending quest to explore every inch—and every taste—the world has to offer. From skydiving two hours after finishing a half-marathon in my amazing hometown of Des Moines, Iowa to eating my way through Prague to talking to every stranger (or as I like to view them, new friend) at CrossFit, there's little I won't try to get to the heart of a story and to live each day to the fullest.
