my city life

I am a long-term traveler, blogger, and photographer with one goal in mind - to make you wish you were somewhere else. I've been writing about my travel lifestyle and around the world adventures on and sharing it on my social media channels since 2006. In my 11 years of living nomadically I've circled the globe multiple times visiting all 7 continents. I lived in Vietnam, hiked the Annapurna Circuit with my father, finished the 10,000 mile Mongol Rally, walked the Camino de Santiago, kayaked in Antarctica, herded reindeer in the Arctic, and drove an auto-rickshaw across India. I continue to seek out epic adventures to intriguing places to inspire people to overcome their fears and reap the benefits of travel!

I feel like I'm perfectly poised...
