These days I've been writing about the intersection of psychology and travel. It's often only when we're abroad that we can really gain insight into our own identity, personality, and culture. I explore how travel unlocks those otherwise hidden sides of our psychology—as well as what psychological research can tell us how to have more meaningful travel experiences.

The best way to keep up with my latest pieces is through my Substack.
