Johnny Caito

I am currently a resident of Ocean Beach, California. After graduating from the University of Arizona, I packed my bags and headed west to the Pacific. My greatest passions include music and traveling, and then writing about the overall experience. I'm always on the hunt for the best beer bar, slice of pizza, local hot spot, and any hidden gem that a city or town has to offer.

I'm a writer, a traveler, a blogger, a real estate investor, and a freelancer. I do what it takes to live the life that I'm meant to live! I'm a believer in the idea that if you can dream it and believe it, you can achieve it. That does not mean that it will be easy, but it does mean that desires and dreams are attainable.

Check out to follow Johnny as he looks to inspire, motivate, and help others achieve their goals, while he looks to achieve his own!
