I created Tall Girl Big World to encourage women to travel the world and dream big — both in life and in business.

A bit about me…
After college, I landed an editorial job in NYC at an incredible startup. For two and a half years, I learned the ins and outs of being a food journalist and worked alongside some of the coolest, most dedicated writers I’ve ever known.
After almost two years in the Big Apple, the company I worked for went under and I was laid off. Once the initial shock of losing my job wore off, I realized this was my golden opportunity to make my dream of living abroad a reality. I did some research and found out that Germany has a freelancer’s visa — I decided right then and there that I’d become a freelancer!
My path to becoming a full-time freelancer hasn’t been easy (more on that here) but it’s been an unforgettable journey, to say the least. I moved to Berlin, Germany in May 2019 and secured a visa shortly thereafter. I haven’t looked back since!
