I am passionate about helping people, community, and most important... happiness. I am interested in living and being well, I have a curiosity for culture and for the world and I want to explore all of it. I am passionate about helping people find their happiness in life and in the work place. This is my blog and in it moments captured from adventures, my community, living remotely, and my entrepreneurial and passion projects. I started this for my friends and family who were asking so many questions about my adventure of traveling the world and working. I find myself having amazing moments and wanting to share my experiences. I want everyone to be able to live powerfully in a life they love, one that they designed, and free from anything that would constrain happiness.
