“The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”
– Christopher McCandless
Today I find myself living in Helsingborg, in the south of Sweden.
I made the jump across the pond after spending all of 2014 working for S.O.U.L. Foundation in my beautiful home base of Denver, Colorado.
I spent all of 2013 living in rural Uganda working as Project Manager for S.O.U.L. (Supporting Opportunities for Ugandans to Learn). The foundation creates sustainable work opportunities in partnership with 14 villages.
Before that, I was in Central and South American with my life in a backpack and the best adventure travel buddies by my side.
I almost settled in Australia forever after living uni life studying at Bond University on the Gold Coast in Queensland.
The first place I ever considered home and a place that will forever remain in my bones, heart and soul is Ski Town USA, Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Nature has many playgrounds and in my biased opinion, Steamboat is one of the best places on earth.
I travel to revel in the beauty of the world, find compassion for the ugly and the brutal and connect with human-kind in its freest form, stemmed from understanding and love.
I love the first breath in a new land after a long plane ride. The sleepiness of the trip dissipates and you are immediately brought to the present moment; a pleasant uncertainty emerges…a new adventure awaits.
I thrive and look forward to experiencing the sensory adventure (external). Much deeper and beyond the external is how we relate to the emotional and spiritual journey. A great choice and challenge is coming back to the present moment despite where in the world we find ourselves. It is our richest landscape and greatest adventure of all.
Understanding the world around me through written word and movement, everything on this site is meant to share the experiences, people, and places I encounter along my way.
I would love to connect with fellow wanderers, artists and humans across the globe.
