Hey - you've found me!
Go Find Alice is a compilation of my adventures and occasional musings. I had the privilege of growing up in different cultures, often moving and traveling with my entrepreneurial parents. Globetrotting since I was two months old, I have now made it to 47 of the 196 recognized countries around the globe. Born and bred a third-culture kid, I have learned that home ultimately lies in the things you carry with you everywhere and the joy of traveling isn't in the moving around but in the moments when you are moved.
Since I can remember, I have been fascinated by the intricacies of various cultures and how they shape a particular society and the people who live there. I love the feeling of being anonymous in a new place and the sovereign freedom that comes with being able to leave my beliefs and certainties behind. I have almost accidentally fallen off of the Great Wall of China but have voluntarily jumped off the most Southern tip of the United States (50ft into the Pacific Ocean). I have swam in the Winter glacier waters of Iceland and melted away in the blazing Summer heat of Gobi desert. I have watched the beautiful sunsets over ancient Cambodian temples, Chilean vineyards, and atop the Yellow Mountain.
This blog is about travel, culture, food, art, photography, but more than anything else, it is about identity. By sharing some of my thoughts and discoveries here, I hope to challenge some of the ways certain cultures are viewed and provide perspectives in a different light.
Of course, I also hope that my stories will inspire others to go on adventures of their own. It's a miracle that we have an opportunity to share what excites us, and that is what I aim to do here.
I have previously lived in Vancouver, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Los Angeles, Paris, and Melbourne. Currently, I am based out of New York.
