Meet the Writers


Brett: The Sunshine Traveller
City: Washington, D.C.

Sunshine Traveller is a globetrotting travel writer. She got her start at the University of North Carolina Wilmington graduating with a B.A. in English and a B.A. in Communication Studies. She then went on to pursue a Master of Arts in Teaching at North Carolina State University. She taught Grammar and Composition at Wake Technical Community College in Raleigh, NC, but decided that her desire to explore and love of travelling outweighed her need for stability, so she became an international flight attendant and has been globetrotting and travel writing ever since. She is the acting Editor-in-Chief of The Wayfarer and is loving every minute of it.


Victoria: The “Pho Queen”
City: San Francisco, CA

Victoria (the Pho Queen) enjoys a wide variety of food and a limited variety of exercise. She first started celebrating her Vietnamese heritage with the Vietnamese Student Union at UCLA, where she earned her B.A. in Global Studies and minored in Japanese. After graduation she looked for a “fun” job and became a flight attendant for a major airline. She continued to wave the Vietnamese flag by starting Phở Across America in 2013 and became engaged in trying to eat phở in all 50 United States, with a passion for exploring new cities and sneaking in different countries along the way. Her dream date involves a stay at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore or a nice soak in a Japanese bath. To apply, visit her in San Francisco.

Kendra: The Escapologist
City: New York, New York

Kendra (the Escapologist) is an executive assistant by day and a Broadway usher by night. She is pinching all of her pennies to escape her everyday life and travel the world. She moved to New York City shortly after graduating from the University of North Carolina Wilmington with a B.F.A in Creative Writing three years ago. She is sustained by hearty diet of red wine and scrambled eggs. Currently, she lives in Astoria, Queens where she spends her free time searching for the best wine bars within walking distance of her apartment.



City: Salt Lake City

Allan, also known as Stumpe, is a dreamer. If you catch him daydreaming he is very likely dreaming of faraway places, outdoor adventures, or beer. Otherwise he is off exploring some new place, visiting a local craft brewery, or finding local adventures in Salt Lake City or San Francisco. As a Utah native he still loves exploring the vast playground in his own state. Allan is a graduate of University of Utah where he received a degree in Parks, Recreation, and Tourism with an emphasis in Sustainable Tourism Management. He wishes he could write like Mark Twain (whom he shares a birthday with), travel like Anthony Bourdain, and embrace the wild like Bear Grylls.
