hi, I'm

After spending two months traveling around Europe with my husband and our baby boy – who was just four months old when we embarked – on an unconventional paternity leave, I decided to create this space to share about our adventures. Whether you're interested in what it's like traveling with a baby, how to pack in just a carry on, or globally-inspired home decor and fashion, Dérive is the place for you.

I (re)started this space in 2020 because I believe in the transformative experience of travel, both locally and globally.

My style is free of bright colors, trends, or fast fashion. I love the details, like rich fabrics and striking silhouettes.

Obviously! I've visited 40+ countries and every continent except Antarctica (top of my bucket list!).
