"As an avid traveler who has spent a lot of time on the road solo, I found that meeting other people with similar interests was not always so easy. And sometimes, the information and recommendations that I relied on were out of date quickly. I wanted to figure out a way to connect with travelers who were geographically desirable who shared common interests and wanted to provide tips and recommendations that were up to date. As WiFi is no longer a rarity in the world, travelers increasingly depend on their phones for directions, connections and information; so the opportunity for an app like WorldWize came to life.

Right now, I'm based in New York City but I can't wait to get back on the road and meet up with other like-minded travelers!"
