Lindsay has been writing since the age of four. As a spelling bee champion and honors English student, she's never relinquished her first passion, writing. Spending the first eighteen years of her life in Kansas City, she moved to Los Angeles to study fashion design, spent a couple of years in New York City and finally returned to LA.

Throughout her career, she has written articles for online platforms, done mystery shopping reviews for five-star hotel chains, been a proud member of ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors, & Publishers), published a poem, recorded an album with all original lyrics, completed her first memoir, written for a few different blogs. The idea for her most recent blog was spurred by her solo travels to Peru and Japan and her general love for exploration and wine. Lindsay is also doing volunteer writing work for a foundation that tells refugees' stories in effort to end human rights violations for marginalized communities. In 2005, she volunteered as an editorial assistant for the independently owned and operated Atomica Magazine, an art and music lifestyle publication.

She currently works full time as an Art Director in the fashion industry. Friends and colleagues seek Lindsay for help with their resumés, emails and other professional correspondence. She is a grammatical junky who recently completed a certificate in a linguistics for beginners course as all things language continue to fascinate her. She'll be the first to claim her life experiences and travels have greatly contributed to her innate writing skills.

Specialties

She can edit and read something for grammar and spelling best practices as well as offer constructive criticism.

Interests

As an Art Director in the fashion industry, naturally, Lindsay loves clothes and accessories. She is a self proclaimed oenophile (lover of wine), doer of yoga, lover of music and animals and she enjoys all things travel, whether it be across oceans or right in her own backyard.

Lindsay loves learning about new cultures, traditions and foods. She is currently co-building a tiny home on wheels in the form of a 1992 Bluebird International 25ft school bus - DIY style. Tiny homes and tiny home storage solutions have fascinated her for years as does the prospect of downsizing and becoming more environmentally friendly.

Travel

50 Projects Completed

Lindsay maintains a blog that is primarily about local and global travels, inspired by a solo trip she made to Peru in 2016. She dives into culture, people, landscape, food and beverage and so much more.

Lindsay is an avid travel planner, often asked by others, "How did you know about this?" or "How did you get such a great deal?!" She searches for the roads less traveled, the less tourists the better and she's often left in wonder by the smallest detail. Lindsay believes that life is about the little moments that we'll never forget: an encouraging, friendly smile from a stranger or the jumping photo on the side of an empty road, sheep and glaciers in the backdrop. She writes extensively about moments that appear troublesome at first but manages to find the deeper, impactful purpose behind them.

She has traveled solo to Peru and Japan and has traveled most of California, many places in which native Californians have never been.
