LIFE BY CAROL

“Wealth is the ability to fully experience life.” ~David Henry Thoreau

Born in Colorado. Raised in Texas. Educated in psychology, economics, and hip-hop in New York. Studied abroad in London. Played abroad in Taipei. Researched environmental sustainability in Brazil. Volunteered at a HIV orphanage in Ethiopia. Fashion designer and beauty queen in San Francisco. Workaholic and funaholic in Los Angeles. Factory owner and slave in China. Full-time daughter and dreamer in Dallas. MMA entrepreneur and student in Hong Kong. Hustler and foodie in Singapore. Hopeless romantic and carefree traveler everywhere else…

Simply put: I love Life. From fabulous 5-star hotels to cheap ghetto hostels, top Michelin restaurants to dirty taco trucks, high-society galas to underground raves, extreme sports to serene spas, private jets to chicken buses, grueling 20-hr work days to relaxing month-long vacays — I love it all. I’ve traveled millions of miles to over 30 different countries, there isn’t much I won’t try once, and I’m always living in the moment (thanks to my lack of memory). Ultimately, I’m just a girl that strives to live fully, love deeply, dream wildly, work diligently, dance freely, sing passionately, travel spontaneously, give openly, forgive easily, laugh heartily, and smile frequently — and hopes to inspire others to do the same. I hope you enjoy my adventures as much as I do and thanks for stopping by!

“It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for – and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing. It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool – for love – for your dreams – for the adventure of being alive.” ~Oriah Mountain Dreamer
