Hi there, I'm Leila!

The first thing you should know about me is: I love reading bios but I cringe at the thought of writing my own, so I'll keep this short and sweet!

After spending a few years in marketing roles, I decided to quit my job and travel the world. I loved sharing my travel finds with others and started writing about my experiences for Thrillist. I was checking off bucket list experiences and traveling to countries I had dreamed of.


Since then, my work has been featured in publications including Thrillist, NBC News, USA Today, Fodor's, Eater, and Business Insider. I've also been documenting my memories on the 'gram and sharing the beauty of this world with other curious travelers. Being able to tell a story of a person or place in front of or behind the camera is my greatest passion and I’ve been lucky enough to do what I love and share it with others. 

I hope my articles will inspire you in some way to get out and explore the world.
