Alicia grew up as a third culture kid, a lifestyle that influenced her immensely. She is currently a digital nomad based between Seattle, East and Southern Africa, and India, where she follows her curiosity everywhere from the deep depths of the ocean, to local wine farms, to remote Maasai villages.
Through her love of indigenous design, she seeks to build relationships between ethical online businesses and artisans in vulnerable communities. She also plays the roles of political analyst, yoga teacher, and writer.
Her insatiable thirst for travel inspires her writing and drives her to seek out off-the beaten path destinations, sustainable travel, food culture, and stories of places that have yet to be told. She’s as addicted to the stirrings of the mountains as she is to the expanse of the savannah and can almost always be found with a glass of wine in hand.
