About Us

We are two partners in crime who realized something in our lives was missing when we were sitting at our desk jobs. Complacent was not enough.

So, we saved up, quit, had a farewell pre-Thanksgiving dinner, packed what we could fit along with our traveling “gnomes” Hati + Ernesto, and set sail for the other side of the globe: Asia.

Our hope is to experience new cultures, help others along the way, and ultimately help ourselves by exploring what else exists within us. So far, we’ve found peace in rice paddies of Bali, cat cafe’d in Thailand, and eaten panda heads in Taiwan (it’s way cuter than it sounds, promise).

My wanderlust was instilled in me long ago by my parents. They gave my siblings and me the greatest gift: travel. They kindly took us along on their worldly adventures. Together, we’ve road tripped to South Dakota for an archaeological dig, eaten pain au chocolats on the French Rivera, ridden a gondola in the Alps, surfed in Mexico, backpacked across western Europe, sailed the Greek waters, and spotted the Sacre Coeur from the top of the Eiffel Tower, among other incredible trips. In turn, they’ve not only opened my eyes to beauty, but also taught me how to be culturally accepting and kind. This is where my love for travel stems from.

My passion for styling comes from a similar place. Up until now, I’ve been the style blogger of Boyish Chic and the founder of my Remedy, designing encouraging messages on tees because I think we all  use some positive vibes.  I believe that fashion is an incredibly powerful (and fun!) tool and that it can be used to change the world for the better. While I’ve had to take a step back from my Remedy for financial reasons, I still fully believe in its ideals and strive to create that unity here on the Road To Here Blog.

So you want to know more about me, huh? I’m flattered. No seriously, I’m honored. However, there is a small problem. An about me implies that I have a solid understanding of myself. I know my habits and my beliefs fairly well but I’m still working on the understanding part. I suppose habits and beliefs is a good place to start. I believe in questions my habits and interrogating my beliefs. I believe in going against the grain and going with the flow. I believe it’s better to not know than pretend to know. I believe nothing is for certain and it’s probably meant to be that way. I also believe in Will Ferrell’s impression of Harry Caray.
