About Me

I’m good at getting myself lost… But sometimes, the best way to find yourself is to get lost!

My name is Molly O’Brien. I’m a freelance writer who enjoys sharing people’s stories. I enjoy taking thousands of photos, and I’ve appreciated the privilege of living on both coasts in the United States (MA & CA!), as well as the opportunity to study abroad in Barcelona, Spain (yo hablo espaƱol).

I’ve been writing ever since I could hold a pencil, and moving around as much as possible since I could walk upright. By day I’m a copywriter for Metrolink’s destination website helping people “Explore” SoCal via railway.

By night (and early morning!) I’m grateful to have the opportunity to freelance write articles for publications like Business Insider, Conde Nast Traveler, Travel + Leisure, Fodor’s Travel, and more.

This website has continued to give me the opportunity to have a voice, and keep a creative outlet to share the best California (and worldly) eats, drinks, experiences, and travel opportunities.

Even with my multiple jobs, I still find ways to try to be a “weekend warrior” and live a wanderlust lifestyle whenever I’m not working at a desk to pay those darned Los Angeles bills.
