About Us

Good to meet you

Hello! My name is Monica Schwartz, and I currently live in the California wine country, and yes, we just survived some horrible wildfires.

Besides being the driving force behind Life Out Of Bounds, I am also a photographer, artist, writer, chef, forest therapy guide, and dabble a bit in design. I am also a world explorer, time traveler and aspiring teleporter. If I were turning eleven next week, my choice of school would be Hogwarts!

Born and raised in Italy, I moved to Hawai'i in 2002, where I lived for eleven years, until I came down with island fever. That is when I moved to California with my two Tibbies in order to have more territory to explore in my Mini.
Hawai'i remains the home of my heart, and it will likely be the place I will return to once I am done exploring.

Keep scrolling and you can find out about some of the things I love.

There is no Present like the Time…
