I Got Featured in Philadelphia Magazine! Check it out:

So for those of you who don’t know, I’m actually from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the US. It’s one of the bigger cities in the country and only a couple hours south of New York if you’ve never heard of it. This past month, I had the opportunity and honor to get interviewed by Philadelphia Magazine for a piece they were doing about digital nomadism. My friend Jason and I had a bit of our stories told from how we went from a couple of kids from Philly to living wherever we want and financial freedom. Check out the article here!  

The Most Endangered Animals on Earth

From climate change to Pacific garbage patch, there is a myriad of problems which threaten our continued existence on Earth. However, framing issues this way is rather shortsighted, as it leaves out a key fact – we aren’t the only beings who call this place home. Many species have been killed off by choices we have made over the ages. Remember the Dodo? Found on Mauritius, it was a flightless bird which had no predators until we arrived on the scene. From 1598, it took less than 100 years for them to be completely wiped out. Turns out a bird…

Best Neighborhoods in Mexico City – San Angel!

best neighborhoods in Mexico City - San Angel

Like Coyoacán, the San Angel (or Ángel in Spanish) neighborhood was an independent and mostly rural village until the mid-20th century, and even today you could easily imagine that you are in a colonial town far from the bustle of Mexico City as you stroll down the cobblestone streets that wind between centuries-old monasteries and grand homes. In fact, both Mexico City and the national government have issued declarations to preserve the unique heritage of San Ángel.  In 1987 the president of Mexico declared the area to be a “Historical Monument Zone;” later, in 2008, it was designated as part…

Best Neighborhoods in Mexico City – Centro Historico!

The historic center of Mexico City, Centro Historico, or just “Centro,” is an area of Mexico City that must be seen to be believed. There is a reason it was the New York Times #1 place to visit in the entire world in 2016. In some ways and in some parts, it has the feel of Europe’s famous capital cities and you could easily imagine that you are in the historic sections of Paris or London as you enjoy a coffee in front of 16th century buildings on a quaint, tucked-away street.  But at the same time, there is no…

Best Neighborhoods in Mexico City – Coyoacán!

Like the other Mexico City neighborhoods I’ve profiled like Roma Norte, Condesa, Polanco and Juarez, Villa Coyoacán (often referred to as the historic center) has a definite personality which makes it stand apart from the rest.  In this case, the vibe is similar to that of Colonia Roma Norte in terms of its quirky and intellectual tendencies blended with the independent character that comes from the area’s history as a village separate from the larger city that now surrounds it. Coyoacán dates back to the early 16th century when it was established as the first capital of New Spain, and…

The Best Neighborhoods in Mexico City – Juarez!

beautiful historic architecture in Mexico City

Like other neighborhoods in transition, Colonia (or neighborhood) Juarez (not to be confused with Ciudad Juarez) has a very diverse personality that is hard to characterize. Juarez is home to the Zona Rosa – the business and cultural hub of Mexico City’s LGBTTI community, and also to “Little Seoul,” the heart of the city’s growing Korean population. The people who live, work and play here represent the broadest cross-section of Mexico City’s population – wealthy and poor, hip and traditional, local and foreigner. Sex shops and high-end hotels can be found within steps of each other, as can pizza joints…

Best Neighborhoods in Mexico City – Condesa!

best neighborhood in Mexico City

The Condesa neighborhood combines some of the best features of Roma Norte and Polanco.   Like Polanco, Condesa is beautiful to look at with its tree-lined streets and parks, art-deco architecture, high-end bars, designer stores and boutique hotels. But, Condesa definitely shares a cool vibe with Roma Norte – its cafes, bookstores, galleries and shops attract the young professionals, students and artists who live and play in Condesa. This split personality can be linked to the fact that after decades of decline the area has been gentrified since the late 90s. There is a lot to see and do in this…
