ABOUT

Welcome! I'm Melissa. Ever since I was little I've loved to travel. Growing up I was fortunate enough to have traveled across much of the US, most of western Europe and the Caribbean, but it wasn't until recently that I realized how important getting to see other parts of the world really is to me.

I am a twenty-something Southern California girl, born and raised. Shortly after I graduated from college I joined a tech startup, moved to Northern California and quickly found myself doing a whole lot of traveling between Norcal and Socal. Eventually I got a bad case of the travel bug and couldn't wait to venture out of my little bubble of California. Somewhat of a coincidence, through my job and an incredible trip to Mexico I met a South African boy.  Before I knew it, I was taking my first trip to South Africa, something I never thought I would do and had only dreamed of when I was little. Fast forward a year and a half and I am on my third trip to South Africa, hopping back and forth between there and California.

Because I work at startup where most of what we do is online I am lucky to have the ability to work wherever I happen to be...so long as I have an internet connection. Although not having a permanent work station does have its challenges, I love this digital nomadic lifestyle of mine.  Right now we're focusing on work while exploring South Africa on the side, but can't wait to get out and experience the rest of the world.

Follow me on my often confusing but always amazing whirlwind of a lifestyle as well as the adventures it takes me on!
