my name is chandra hope Mossine

I’m a writer, artist and travel enthusiast with a nose for adventure and stinky cheese.  When I was in second grade, I decided I wanted to learn French, and followed that desire all the way through my University education. A stint at Université Jean Moulin in Lyon allowed me the opportunity to travel extensively in France and particularly Rhone-Alpes, where I ate my way through character-shaping experiences and learned first-hand why the regional motto is "Tout est bon dans le cochon". My early passion for culinary and cultural exploration was the foundation for what has since grown into an insatiable need to travel the world and encourage others to do the same.  

I have worked as a writer and editor for PR Magazine, Eloquence Magazine and the Tourism Authority of Thailand publication “Thailand 50 Great Green Escapes”, promoting sustainable tourism. "50 great Green Escapes" took me all over Central and Northern Thailand, where I immersed myself in Thai history and culture and realized that this is what I wanted to spend my life doing: spreading the word about all the spectacular and important things that are out there for us to see, hear, taste, smell and touch. I'm passionate about sustainable travel, education, the arts and the human experience. I’m currently working as content strategist and chief copywriter at Veterans United Home Loans, where we help US Military Veterans achieve the dream of homeownership.

I want to see the world and live to write about it.
