As of April 15, 2015, I decided to take time off from the working world to explore the *actual* world.  I quit my job, rented my house, and began to live as a modern day nomad.  

Having visited over 40 countries in my lifetime, I am an experienced traveler.   I have traveled by 4-wheel-drive truck across Bolivia, by motorcycle in Vietnam, by cargo ship in Chile, by 6-passenger plane in Nicaragua, by boots and crampons in Patagonia, and by roller-blades in Buenos Aires.  

I am certified with U.S. Sailing as a Bareboat and Coastal Skipper, as well as Keelboat Instructor.  Sailing is my passion, and I try to incorporate sailing as unique way to explore this amazing planet.  Most recently, I crewed on a 50-foot sailboat from New Zealand to Fiji and back again, and I skippered a 42-foot sailboat on a two-week charter in Croatia.

I've set up this website to record my journey.  I have incorporated a map to track my course, a journal to report my activities, and a gallery to share photos and videos.  I'm also building out a "resources" section where I will share information about my recommended gear, useful websites, etc.   You can also find my CV / Resume in the "About Me" section.  Please leave comments, suggestions, and/or travel tips.  I'd love to hear from you!

Hope you enjoy exploring with me!
