Welcome! It’s great to have you here. Whether pulled by the travels, eats, or reflections, I hope this site speaks to you in some way or another. Unexpected Landing is a project that kicked-off while studying in Belgium during university. My roots are in Chicago, but graduation marked the started of life abroad.

Indeed, I’m an expat.

The eclectic, off-beat charm of Europe stole me. Though Brussels is where it all began, two years ago Amsterdam swooped in too. That’s where I am now.

Writing is my outlet, which *fingers crossed* means entertainment for you. Stay tuned for my first book! I like wine, John Steinbeck, and running extreme distances in beautiful settings. My former, US-based life calls me often. For now, we’ll celebrate the unexpected landings.
