Randiah Green

Staff Writer

Randiah discovered the freedom of solo travel when she dropped everything and moved to Japan. Traveling across Asia, she trained as a Buddhist monk and ate copious amounts of okonomiyaki. When she’s not meditating, she’s going on day hikes and writing introspective poetry—probably at the same time.

Rebecca spent 14 months traveling around Asia where she truly learned the meaning of packing light. She kicked off her vlogging & blogging career after moving to Japan without knowing a word of Japanese (don’t worry, she speaks english fluently & writes plenty of great articles for us).

Roberto Thais


Roberto comes to us from Lima, Peru. After obtaining his BA in Philosophy from Yale, it was only natural for him to transition to computer programming and move to New York City. He’s since lived his life like he’s used his degree, constantly changing and adapting, living in different countries and experiencing new things.


Jude Miguel De Leon

Staff Content Writer

Miguel loves road trips and actively takes the scenic route to make things interesting. When he's not behind the wheel with a trunk full of gear, you'll find him tinkering with a computer; a hobby he picked up while watching tech reviews starting at age 12. You'll never see him consider a product without being armed with plenty of product research & testing first.


Lauren Maternowski

Staff Writer

Lauren never lets distance stop her from having fun, whether that means driving across state lines for a concert or flying overseas in search of the best local eats and patio views. Whatever time is left, she spends at home with family, friends, and her collection of books that consists of more unread titles than not. And no, before you ask, that will not stop her from buying more.

Kelly Becker (she/her)

Partnerships Manager

Kelly has found her niche in public relations and partnerships—and in working remotely. An equal lover of road trips and flights, she’s traveled domestically and internationally to view two eclipses in the past 3 years. Living in the mountains of Northern New Mexico, she’s often outdoors hiking, skiing, or camping with her dog, Stella.
