Recent Adventures

Tranquebar

Anyone who has ‘vacationed’ with me knows that I’m not very good at the whole rest and relaxation thing, but in Tranquebar on a holiday weekend, that was all we could do.. and it was awesome! I’ve never enjoyed doing nothing so much in my life....

Pondicherry

I had originally planned for my first trip in India to be to the northwest region of Rajasthan, but I made a last-minute change in schedule because I found an awesome travel partner: Stacey. We arrived in Pondicherry on the southeast coast of India after flying to...

Colombia Is The New Germany

I recently made a 12-day trip to Colombia to reunite with a few friends from my year as a Rotary Youth Exchange Student in Germany. We visited several fantastic places around the country and had the best local insight available thanks to Alejandro Borda who organized...

Dubai

Dubai: the playground of billionaires, royalty and me (for a day)! Thank you to my dear friend Laura and her family for hosting me while I was in Dubai. Laura and I worked together on my cornerstone project while in the Peace Corps. She was a key player at UNESCO, who...

Abu Dhabi

What an unexpected treat! I’ve dreamed of visiting the United Arab Emirates for such a long time but even with all of my travel experience, this has always felt like a place too distant, too exotic and so far out of reach that I might not ever get here. However,...

Andrés Carne de Res

We celebrated our final evening in Colombia in grand fashion with incredible food, drinks and dancing. The most famous place to eat in all of Colombia is Andrés Carne de Res. There are 2 locations in Bogotá. One is in the city center (fashion district) and is new and...

Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá

Near Bogotá is the Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá. If you go to Colombia and don’t go here, you should truly feel like you’ve missed out on something grand. Dubbed, “a wonder of the world, the first wonder of Colombia,” photos can’t do this...

Villa de Leyva

Our next destination is the preserved town of Villa de Leyva. Located a 4-hour drive north from Bogotá nestled in rolling hills and a landscape that was, to me, what I expected Colombia to look and feel like. The architecture is uniform: white stucco with red tile...

Isla Palma

The destination that we considered to be, at lest during the planning phase, the main event, was the 3-day all-inclusive visit to Isla Palma, an island resort which used to be the summer home of famed drug cartel boss, Pablo Escobar. The island is located a 3-hour bus...

I’ve been to 20 out of 215 countries so far! That’s 9.30% of the world!

After a career in the music and live events industry where I traveled the United States with the biggest names in music entertainment, I decided to get back to my roots and dedicate myself to serving humanity.

As a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Kyrgyz Republic, I spent two years working with media outlets and journalists. My main project was the deployment of mobile technology into rural areas so that journalists in those areas could have a wider voice and better access to information.

Now living in Austin TX, I continue to support the next generation of journalists as the Executive Director of the Kloop Media Foundation, which supports the Kyrgyz NGO, Kloop Media and their journalism school in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. I am also a part of the Operations Team at Mutual Mobile.
