I'm an avid traveler and freelance writer who loves collecting new experiences and stories. I've spent my career covering lifestyle, travel and health for both print and online publications as well as my own blog DryAsToast.com. Previously, I was an assistant editor for Latina before moving on to Travel + Leisure and BET.com. Most days you'll find me and my laptop searching out WiFi-enabled NYC parks or in my colorful home office tinkering with my latest DIY project. You can find my cute hand-illustrated greeting cards at porcupinehugs.etsy.com.I know I'm Latina when... I bust a move in the middle of the street when a car playing a merenguito drives by.
