On a mission to share art and culture
of places around the world in a way
that doesn’t require you to have
a cocktail in your hand.


Exploring places and meeting new people is awkward and challenging and difficult, but by embracing all of that, I find that connections with people and places are deeper and stories are richer.

I embraced the sober lifestyle in 2017 and haven’t looked back. Now, I’m on a mission to share travel stories through a lens of authentic connectivity and realness.

If you are one of the sober-curious people who want to start exploring more authentically, but aren’t sure where to start, I hope my blog can be a resource.

I’ll show you how much fun you can have travelling without feeling the pressure to put a drink in your hand.


Who is the Townie Tourist?


I am all about sober curious lifestyle.

Love art and design and could spend hours in galleries, museums just wandering.

Thinks coffee is basically water. It is, isn’t it?

On the search for the world’s best zero proof cocktail bar.

My niece and nephew are my heart. I love them so much.

Sometimes is an early bird, other times loves pulling all nighters.

God and family first.

Best smell in the world: fresh baked bread.

I’ve lived in 22 places and 3 different countries.

Dancing happens spontaneously.

Current favorite brands: my Nespresso Pixie machine, David’s toothpaste, Of A Kind clothing, and SEE eyewear.

I love making videos. Live videos can connect people immediately to a place or event.

Keeping it real is awkward sometimes, but it’s necessary if you’re going to truly connect with people.

I gravitate toward bright colors, natural materials, and clothes that can also be pajamas.

I don’t believe in luck. It’s all hard work…and naps. Balance.

Saving up for a trip to Tokyo, Japan

I adore every second of being Townie Tourist.
