A native of Chile with deep Chicago roots, Pilar and geekdom have been mutually exclusive since tight-rolled jeans and slap bracelets were in fashion, making it fitting she married a Star Wars nerd and made two nerdlets. An award-winning writer, multimedia storyteller, and brand strategist, her work has appeared on a number of prominent parenting and pop culture sites; and she's been featured in some cool places like the AP, CNN, GMA and Huffington Post among others. An avid photographer and travel hound, Pilar was recently inspired to build a travel community that brings world-curious families together, resulting in explorewanderland.com.
