Hi! I'm Andi.
Growing up as the oldest child born into a family of travelers I don’t remember a time in which the idea of living a nomadic life wasn’t in my plan. I loved that childhood game where you spin the globe, eyes closed, and wherever the globe stops that’s your future destination.
I moved to New Orleans working as a senior level executive in the beauty business. However there’s no city that encourages it’s residents to chase the muse like New Orleans - my muses: artists (those that play on the streets for dimes and those that fill concert halls), the stars, mountain tops, beaches and desert highways. 10 years later my life has taken a different path. I've worked as a fashion designer, event planner, stylist and creative director. Presently I'm traveling America exploring artistic hideaways and famous locales too, writing book number two, to be published with Abrams in Spring of 2017 titled "A Wanderful Life." It's my favorite "job" yet.
Why Oui We and what's the book about?
Well, two summers ago I took off to spend four months traveling overseas. It occurred to me: every time I’ve taken a trip I’ve sought out a guide. As a girl with a love of the ‘off the beaten path’ I look to the bohemians and flower children. I comb through their writings and stories to find their local haunts - what’s their favorite lunch counter dive and vintage shop in their own neighborhoods? The dreamer in me wants more than the usual tourist stops. I love slow traveling searching for a deep connection to a place.
My travel diaries and the book are a reflection of that. I'm glad you're here to join me on these journeys. Sign up for travel tips, occasional style stories and unique destination ideas. And, if you've got a place I should visit or an artist to check out, drop me a line anytime.
