About Me

Hi and welcome to The Poetic Passport! I’m Kimia, and I’m excited to welcome you to my little corner of the Internet, where the creative female traveler can find my tips to live and adventure more authentically.

A little about me: I’m a published poet, freelance writer, and grad student based in San Francisco, CA. (If you like poetry, do me a solid and order a copy of my poetry book on Amazon — I’ll love you forever!)

When I’m not writing, traveling, or planning my next adventure, you can usually find me trekking up and down the crooked and colorful hills of San Francisco in a pair of my fave Doc Martens or chunky platform shoes. Not unlike the ones pictured above. 🖤

I’m a big believer in travel as a means of expanding horizons, growing, and ultimately, coming home to ourselves.

After working as a beauty, fashion, and lifestyle editor for nearly 4 years, I recently went freelance, as well as deciding to dip my toe into the travel and lifestyle blogging world. Friends and family have been telling me I should try it for years!

These days, whether it’s working on personal projects or on content marketing and curation for brands, apps, and publications, I pretty much eat, sleep, and breathe content in some form or another. (Feel free to head to my contact page and reach out if you’d like to work together; I’m always looking for new partnerships and professional opportunities.)

Just like I’ve always known I wanted to be a writer, I will find myself forever inspired by the power of art, poetry, and literature to transport and transform us as human beings. And the truth is, I’m never more inspired than when I’m traveling somewhere new.

If you’re like me, you’re always looking to make even the mundane things in life magical — with words, travel, music, and just about anything that brings your soul to life. Thank you for being here, and embarking on this new journey with me. Hope you enjoy the ride!
