Hello! I’m Olivia 🌸
I've always had a love for people; a deep compassion for others and curiosity to why people are the way they are. (I was absolutely the "but why?" child)
I was born, raised, and spent most of my life in a small town near Napa, California. When I was 18 I knew I wanted to travel somewhere new and live near the ocean; I moved a few hours down the road to Monterey, CA for business school.
Leaving my comfort zone and moving to a new city was the most meaningful experience for me. I was going through a very challenging time back home and was grateful I could be away to learn about the things I needed in my life to be happy. I found love in storytelling.
In 2015 I graduated college and moved back home to be near family. At my first real marketing job, managing marketing and social media accounts for a California private college, my career in storytelling began.
I loved (and still love) connecting with people and every aspect of the process – getting to know the person, interviewing them, seeing where he or she feels joy, passion, maybe struggle, and capturing all of that on video. Figuring out a way to create content that fits their personal story, to make others feel something special, is so powerful to me.
After acquiring basic video skills, I knew I wanted to travel and story-tell for people and businesses abroad. I set a date and decided to go for it. In November 2016, I moved to Australia.
Today, I'm fortunate to travel Australia, New Zealand, and SE Asia helping other people share their story. Most days I work from cafes in Bondi editing. And play beach volleyball on my time off.

(an occasional hobby)
After moving to Australia in November 2016, I decided to make a travel vlog channel to help inspire other young Americans to travel and move abroad. Now that I've become busy with creating videos for clients, I don't spend as much time creating for my youtube channel (oh my gosh is it is so much work producing a legit vlog!) But it's still something I enjoy during free time, especially when I travel :)
Moving to a foreign country, I quit my 9-5pm, left all comfort zones behind, and chased my entrepreneurial dream – the absolute best decision I’ve ever made in my life. I want to share my truths of traveling & show you, you can do it too.
Traveling is enhancing my personal development through acquiring new skills, learning about new cultures, and making new friends from all over the world.
