About Me

Well, not quite yet. But we’re getting there.


My two great loves. The guitar and the St. Lawrence River.


I’m Kate, I’m twenty-four, and I was raised in a small riverside town that no one has ever heard of — though I live in Toronto these days. I have this really neat degree in environmental management but I work in the financial industry, which is something my conscience struggles with a lot of the time. I also take public transit to work during rush hour. Now that I think about it, my conscience probably struggles with that far more intensely. A combination of all of these things have brought me to the realization that I’m not okay with living this life. It’s time to flip my world directly upside down.

I think what it all eventually boils down to is: I don’t know who the hell I am. And it’s hard to know what you want when you’re not even sure who that person in the mirror is or what they’re capable of. Call it twenty-somethingitis. Call it fear of sitting around the table in sixty years with no good stories to tell. Call it a refusal to lay down for the last time and wonder what if?

So I’m going to head out on a journey that I have always dreamed of taking, and I am going to see what I’m really made of. I’m going to learn, I’m going to laugh, and I’m going to love. More than all of that together, I’m going to live. Should I stop beating around the bush and tell you what my goals are? I’m going to travel.

I’d be stoked if you decided to join me for the ride, but please don’t keep your hands and feet inside the vehicle at all times. If you’re mere seconds from clicking away in utter disinterest, I hope you have a beautiful day.
