About Me

My Background

 I’ve worked behind a desk for nearly all my adult life, squeezing in travel whenever possible. I’ve been lucky to get to see a lot of places across four continents, but it never seems like enough. Call it a mid-life crisis, or a mid-live revelation, but at 40-something I’m ready to hit the road. I want to see everything I can and take advantage of every day I’m given. With wife Kress, our dogs Pilot & Sailor, and our bunny Memphis, we’re ready to get going! It can get lonely out there on the road, so I hope you’ll join us for this adventure! 

How I Got Started

When I was 24 years old I went through a rough break up. My first real heart break. To get a fresh start I strapped on a back pack and went to Europe for 3 months with nothing more than a EuroPass and something to prove. It was the most liberating and confidence building experience I had ever had. The travel bug had gotten a hold of me and I committed to someday taking a work break to see the world! When I returned home I began “adulting” hard-core. One job led to another, that led to another, that led to a comfortably stagnant life. The travel bug was still in me, but I could only satisfy it for a week or two at a time. Now, 20+ years later, I’m ready to let go. Before my knees get too old to hike, or I settle too deeply into this adulting lifestyle, I need to see the world! 


Top Destinations

I’ve travelled to nearly every country in Europe, through Argentina and Chile, and across Thailand, but I haven’t seen much of my home country of America. That’s where this story begins.
