Me smiling at the helm.

I’m a curious cat, so I’m taking my eight remaining lives on the high seas. I’ve farmed organic vegetables in North and South America, investigated for activist groups in D.C., and ate my weight in fried sardines in Istanbul for a spell. My family raised me on a sailboat in San Diego, California and now I’m halfway to my goal of sailing from California to Japan.

Right now, I’m based in magical Aotearoa New Zealand and am building up a cruising fund via my writing business. Please send me a message if you’d like me to translate your creative dreams into written reality!

If you enjoyed my adventures and want to contribute to the second half of my quest (wow!) my venmo is @Roxanne-Darrow.
