I was born in Mexico, moved to Israel and then to the United States. Since my family moved a lot I was curious to travel after leaving home.

Once I graduated high school at 17 years old I joined the Marine Corps. Through my military experience as a correspondent, I discovered my passion for storytelling.

I’ve traveled multiple countries across the Pacific telling stories of service members and taking some time to share my personal experiences as well.
