About the Founder

I’m Genna. I’m into travel, photography, food, and social justice. I’m from Chicago, Illinois, and then moved to Washington, DC, from west to east. (I lived and worked in Honolulu, rural Japan, London, and New York City along the way.) When I’m not blogging, biking, or traveling, I’m most often taking photos or at my day job promoting social impact. I’m currently living in northwest Washington, DC.
