about me

Hello! I'm Amanda, a gal from Michigan who lives in the tiny surf town of Encinitas, CA. Every day I go for a walk along the ocean and am so thankful that I get to live in such a magical little place. I am both goofy and moody. I like to laugh a lot with my friends, but also spend lots of time alone thinking to myself. When I have a few days off, I love driving somewhere new and camping in the back of my Subaru Outback with my sister. I'm passionate about kombucha, Patagonia, cooking, and podcasts.
