I was born in New Hampshire in 1987 and I have lived in many different states, as well as overseas for 5 years when I was a child because of my father's career. I grew up with traveling in my blood and I have always loved going to new places and meeting new people. After high school I attended college for one year in North Carolina before deciding I wanted to travel and see more of the world, and I ended up in Florida where I lived for the better part of a decade. While in Florida I was employed by a company that rented out boats, jet skis, and other watercraft and this included their sister company that rented out beach accessories and equipment. I became focused on the beach operations and moved up into management and was in charge of several rental locations on the beach. During this time I enjoyed helping people with their various beach accoutrement, and I always loved hearing the stories of the tourists and learning about their homeland.
