  • After graduating from college, Sky spent six months traveling around six countries in Asia by herself, even though she'd never left America before in her life.
  • Sky has explored abandoned destinations all over the world, including an abandoned waterpark in Vietnam, the ruins of a theme park in Bali, and the bones of a famous island mansion in Colombia.
  • Accompanied by her dog named Bear, Sky lived in Mexico City for almost a year and even took her little Pomeranian on a road trip through the country to a mountain village in Oaxaca.


Sky was planning on heading to law school after exploring the world for a bit, but once she got a taste for travel, she knew she wasn't meant to spend her whole life confined by walls of classrooms and offices. That was in 2019. Ever since then, she's been developing her career as a professional writer in the travel, career, and lifestyle niches. Her articles have garnered millions of readers on sites like Zippia, Travel Lemming, FashioCast, Booking, and Explore. Sky also writes scripts for a major YouTube channel and has her own thriving blog on Medium.


Sky graduated cum laude from Hunter College in 2018. She earned a bachelor's degree in Psychology with minors in Philosophy and English, all of which have been of great use throughout her writing career.
