I am sort of a travel writer.

For speaking inquiries, collaborations, or projects, shoot me an email:

I am a story teller. From the cartels of Mexico, to the mega-churches of the US, to the Amazon in Bolivia, I have seen some crazy things.

I speak about choosing your life. I made the frightening decision to leave a job I loved to pursue an untested dream: bicycling to Patagonia and writing a book about it. What an idiot. But here I am, doing it, and I have quite a few things to say.  I've come to believe that living life with intention, curiosity, and wonder are foundational in the pursuit of joy.

At Invisible Children, I was often in front of thousands of high school and college kids, synthesizing inspiration, advocacy, and activism for their hungry minds. It was an incredible privilege. If you want to see me speaking at UCLA to a few thousand folks, check it out here

There are only so many hours in the day, but if I believe I can contribute in a meaningful way to what you're doing, I will try. If I'm spread too thin or it isn't in our best interests for me to participate, I'll be honest with you. Don't hesitate to reach out. I'm just a human, sitting at my laptop, trembling from my fifth cup of coffee.
