About

I’m Chelsea Greenwood, a young-ish adult from Puyallup, Washington. I currently live and work in Seattle, where I promote my new book, Leave It All: The Journal of a Maybe Missionary. I am a proud alum of Concordia Christian Academy in Tacoma, Washington, and I hold a degree in world religions (and a minor in Greek and Roman studies!) from Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York.

Following my studies, I embarked on the World Race, the subject of my first book and blog. Following that, I moved to Seattle to work as a musician in the theatre scene. My career path has also involved forays into education, music directing, and the salted black licorice and pickled herring of a Scandinavian deli. These days, you can find me co-managing a travel-themed coffee shop in Ballard, playing piano as much as is possible during these wacky times, and, of course, writing and editing.

In between larger projects, I love traveling and blogging about places near and far. Peruse my blog for essays about walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain, fly fishing in the Bahamas, and eavesdropping on bus passengers on my way home from work.

I’m also into pub trivia, literature, sewing, walking long distances across Seattle, Spanish, Hebrew, Ancient Greek, Latin, running, hiking, theatre, bad movies, natural footwear, geology, and church.
