I have spent my career helping people see the wonder in the world around them. From my start as a small ship cruise director, to marketing international internships, to crafting expeditions throughout Alaska, British Columbia and Central America for Lindblad Expeditions and National Geographic, I've been very fortunate. And I’ve learned a lot from these travels.
I want to inspire you to set out on your next adventure. I’ll do it the best way I know how: sharing insight from writings of great explorers, and introducing you to the Modern Explorers who inspire me. You’ll see that so much of their motivation, journeys and observations is THE SAME. A shared spirit to explore.
You’ll also find photography, stories, and more, that I hope will help you take the first step towards seeing the world with the traveler’s mindset.
32 gorgeous images from Alaska, British Columbia and Haida Gwaii, and a poem proven to inspire.
99% of rewarding journeys stop before they even start. This is my promise to help you to take the first step.
What does travel mean to you? What does it mean to travel bloggers, National Geographic researchers and photographers think about travel?

A person you met, a fear you overcame, finding empathy, stories of gratitude and connection. I'd love to hear them. And, most importantly, to know how the experiences have shaped the person you are today.
