My Blog Passport


Why I Blog:

About two years ago I tried a vegan muffin at a cafe in New Jersey. This muffin was so bad that I felt the world needed to know. That’s when I decided to put my picky palate and wonderfully wacky writing to work and start writing Sweet Tooth Travels’ blog posts!

On this site, I review vegan restaurants and recipes and talk about my adventures traveling abroad. Hopefully, amid all of this, I can even make you laugh! It sounds ambitious, but I believe in myself!

A little about me:

I am a native New Yorker who currently lives in Jersey City, New Jersey. I live with my adorable and yappy rescue dog named Lolita (aka Lolly.)


I am recently completed my Master’s in Psychoanalysis at The Center for Modern Psychoanalytic Studies in NYC. My BA is in liberal arts, and I also received a certificate in creative arts therapy at The New School during that time. While going to school I also received my TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certificate and went to a year of comedy school – yes, that’s a real thing. It was amazing!

I enjoy playing guitar, writing poetry and songs, and urban biking.


Much of my time is also spent at the gym. While I do enjoy jogging while I watch Food Network, I definitely prefer weight training. I’m by no means a fitness expert, but I am there nearly everyday with my group of gym rats; pumping iron and sweating my buns off. After all, I do love to bake…. With all good things must come balance.


Traveling is another important aspect of my life. I’ve been to over 30 countries throughout the years. My ultimate dream is to travel the world, volunteer, and share what I learn with others. Aside from the beauty, adventure, and fun of travel, I also love meeting new people along the way!

Writing is my chosen method of expressing myself, my experiences, and sharing the things I love!

Since everyone asks, I have been a vegetarian since I was 11 years old. I became vegan on my 18th birthday. I’ve always loved animals tremendously, and try to do everything I can to help and protect them.

My goal is not to save the world or be the perfect human being, I just want to do my best and offer what I can to make the world a more pleasant place to exist and coexist. I hope you’ll join me on my journey.
