About

My life hasn’t been the same since I left Texas to explore.

As a travel writer and photographer, I have an insatiable appetite for world cuisine, architecture, and visually stunning locales. 

Over the past eight years, I’ve called six countries home, visiting a total of 28 countries and counting. Gorgeous Globe was born out of my insatiable curiosity for travel and experiencing new cultures. What started as a visual diary of sorts became a community and curation of the interesting people and places in the world. My travel journey is documented here on GG through personal stories and street photography, showcasing the people and places that strike me in a deep and inspiring way.

A flavor, photography, & architecture addict

I work with hotels and restaurants to showcase their design, cuisine, and style through blog articles and hi-quality interior and food photography. My passion is to draw in curious travelers with an eye for style and gourmet taste. So far, I’ve worked with companies throughout Asia and Europe. Countries such as Malaysia, France, Belgium, Spain, Italy, Germany, Indonesia, and Thailand.

I grew up in the restaurant business with food permeating every facet of my adolescence and early adulthood. I got my start in food writing and now I explore every country the only way I know how: taste buds first with a strong preference for sweets. Oh, and don’t even get me started on coffee.

My travel writing, photos, and video have been featured by Elle Belgium, Matador Network, Discoverer, Secret Food Tours, ExpatGo Belgium, ExpatGo Malaysia, The Bulletin, Flanders Today, Ten Days in Paris, Visit Croatia, Visit Porto, Visit Bordeaux, and Budapest Tourism Centre. To collaborate for travel content for your hotel, or restaurant, or tour experience please reach out!

      Hi Franziska! I’ve since moved to Belgium, but am going to start blogging full-force again. If you move to Malaysia and need any tips, feel free to contact me on my email!
