About Me

Originally from Richmond, Virginia, I came to Cancun to study tourism in 2005. After four tough but exciting years of university, I’m now starting out on my independent life in this vibrant destination. I currently work as a freelance writer, a translator and a copywriter for a travel agency. Right now, I’m 26 years old and I’ve been married to my husband Jorge for 2 years!

This blog is all about my day-to-day life in Cancun. You’ll find some pretty cool stuff like my excursions around the Yucatan Peninsula, my favorite places in Cancun, my experience renting in Cancun, tips on how to speak more like a Mexican and my own cultural observations.

I’m also proud to be a Community Manager for the Mexico Today program, which focuses on bringing positive news about Mexico to the forefront. Although I’m being compensated for my role in this program, all of the information shared here is my own opinion. Follow Mexico Today on Twitter at @MexicoToday or #MexicoToday, and on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/#!/MexicoToday
