My desk isn’t a permanent space in a nine-to-five office which my parents generation would understand. Instead, it is a constantly changing (& challenging) environment which ranges from a recce...

I applied to Remote Year twice. The first time was after I had just completed a year and a half living in London and Thailand, and I was having a mild panic attack about moving to one place, having one job and staying put for a while. So I applied before I even graduated with my MBA and never heard back. Womp. Fast forward to...

It just so happens that I'm spending my last week in the states in NYC for work. How incredibly apt. It's been nearly two years since I moved away from this city but it still feels like "home" and last night couldn't have cemented it more.My worlds collided when friends and family came together so I could see them one more time before the life-changing...

Sunday we said a final farewell to my father. Maybe you never stop saying goodbye. I don’t think I will. Dad passed away eight months ago from acute pancreatitis. (Some like to know these details and I don’t mind sharing them. Our minds are quirky and some hang on details like sopping sweaters on hooks.). . .  Entrance to Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge.
