I'm Christa, a freelance writer and graphic designer from the US based in Barcelona. I have a Bachelors in Mass Communication and I've studied journalism and visual communication for many years. I have a passion for words, photography, and seeing all of this magical world.
- My Story -
From my early years of making my own magazines and pretending to be a news reporter to high school where I inevitably joined the newspaper staff and first submerged myself into the world of AP Style and Adobe Indesign, journalism has always been in my life.
This led to my university studies at Middle Tennessee State University where I studied journalism and advertising. I joined the university publication Sidelines right away and immediately began writing articles.
Heading into my junior year I was faced with a decision: apply for an editor position or follow my other dream of studying and living abroad.
Months later the decision was made, and I boarded a flight to Scotland where I furthered my journalism studies with a new global perspective. I quickly began writing for a country-wide publication called Scotcampus, where my primary focus was a column about my life as an American expat in Scotland. This began to fuel my passion for travel writing as I then started publishing my own blog posts and creating my own brand.
Now I run my own travel blog, am an avid and passionate traveler, and am still an expat to this day living in Barcelona, Spain where I spend my free time doing photography and graphic design.
