Born in St. Thomas in the United States Virgin Islands, but raised on the Hawaiian island of Maui, I have been strangely fascinated by the rest of the world since a very early age. I was one of those weird kids who knew every capital of every country at the age of 5. To this day I can still remember the name of every place I have ever been.
Nearly visiting every US state before graduating from high school, it wasn’t until moving to study in Spain that I really ventured off of the North American continent for the first time. That was all it took to inspire the insatiable wanderlust that now drives me to new destinations across the globe. Among many other activities while on the road, I have worked as a bartender in Greece, a sea kayak guide in Alaska, on a winery in New Zealand, as an oyster chef in Florida, and as a nightclub DJ in Spain. Currently, I spend as much time out of the country as financially possible, and in the interim period I spend my time working on a catamaran doing sailing and snorkeling charters throughout Maui, Hawaii. While constantly searching for new locations to explore, during the month of May I can usually be found somewhere in Baja, Mexico.
I stress that I am nobody special. There are many people who, like myself, share a love of travel, and spend a large portion of their life on the road, with their own respective set of stories to tell. Honestly, I still consider myself a novice traveler. There are plenty of people out there who are true vagabonds, and are more deserving of the title than I. My hope for this site is not to lavish about my own adventures, but rather, to inspire the reader to go and create their own. I thank you for visiting my site, and I hope you enjoy the stories inside.
