I’ve always enjoyed writing for personal use as medicine. When I first created this website in 2017, it was only travel stories, pictures, and videos. As my life has evolved, so has The Britterfly Effect to become what it is now.

Peruse any of what I have put out into the world thus far below & thank you for witnessing me 🙏🏼

I hope you get something out of it 🤗

  • Camping near Phoenix, Arizona – Tonto National Forest – Coon Bluff Campground & Apache Trail Boondock
    In February 2020, I started my first travels around beautiful Arizona after attending Gem & Jam Festival in Tucson, AZ (highly recommended if you’re thinking of going sometime!) I am not one that likes to pay for camping often, although I will do it if 

I also have somewhat of a video blog/passion project that I put out on YouTube called:

🌻 Be An Outsider 🌻

I’ve been taking a bit of a hiatus as I focus on other projects & dreams, but hope to revisit it at some point – hope you enjoy!
