My name is Johnelle, I’m 28-years-old and was raised in a small town in southern California.  From there, I moved to Los Angeles and then to NYC where I live currently with my fiancé Max and my dog Angus.

I have a hard time sitting in one place.  I may work in an office still for now but it doesn’t mean I’m not taking sweet advantage of the available time I do have.

Ever since I was a kid, I had a passion for seeing the way that others lived.  I am half Filipino and half white so I grew up going to the Philippines often.  It was amazing for me to see the way that one part of the world differed so greatly than the other and it only took an airplane ride to get there.

I love expanding my horizons and my knowledge of things.  This universe and this world are so endless and full of possibilities, I want to take in as much as I possibly can and write it all down.  I love to travel with my husband-to-be but I’m also game for a solo trip now and again to clear my mind.

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms…” – Henry David Thoreau
