Elle & Pear is the inspiration, exploration, adventuring guide to making the most of life’s little moments. Whether off on an international adventure or wandering around town on a lazy Sunday morning, some of the most memorable moments are the small ones. These are the ones that tug at your ankle while you are in mid stride. They make you pause for just a split second to see and feel the beauty around you. We hope to help you capture and create these moments, making the most of every day life.

Founder, Editor, & Photographer
Elle & Pear is my creative venture, a combination of my love for photography, writing, and exploration, all elements which became too enticing to resist. I knew that creativity and imagination were two things that I could not leave behind in my next step forward. After considering various possibilities and options, slowly but surely the idea of Elle & Pear began to take shape.
Previously, after spending five years working in financial services in New York and Colorado, I decided to switch things up and attend graduate school. I had my sights set on Spain for quite some time, and when my soon to be husband was offered a position in Barcelona, we didn’t hesitate to jump at the opportunity. We set our wedding date for early September, which coincidentally was the day before we needed to move to Spain. So we said our I Do’s and hopped on a plane the very next day to start our European adventures.
I am currently studying as a second year MBA student in Spain, where I live with my (dashing) husband, Sebastian. I spend my time as a full time student, running Elle & Pear, and traveling and exploring every chance that I get.
