G’day and welcome!
I was born in the Pacific Northwest where I grew up developing a taste for the outdoors and adventure. When I left the U.S. for the first time in 2007 I was immediately hooked on the idea that there was a whole world to explore, experience and ‘conquer’. I spent the next few years planning my escape and in 2011 I studied abroad in Sevilla, Spain. I then spent two months backpacking around Europe. The next semester I graduated summa cum laude from Boise State University’s business program, and I haven’t even considered slowing down to use my degree.
Since graduating, I have lead four nationwide marketing tours for the Idaho Potato Commission where I was the face and voice for the brand. I created videos, executed the social media campaign, and really just had a kick ass time traveling the country. In between and after the tours, I have been burning my travel fuel by backpacking around Latin America, Europe and Asia. Somewhere along the way I developed a love for shooting and editing video. So now I am sharing my experiences here with you.
I live light and free and am always looking for my next opportunity. I try not to get too bogged down in this game called life. I would love to hear from you and where you are at in life. Never hesitate to reach out with any questions, suggestions or anything else that may suit your fancy.
