…My directions were, “Do you hear the waterfall? Follow the sound, hop a fence, look for a foot bridge and a trail. If you find the trail you are set. If not… well…. just remember how to get back. It should take 20-40 min of walking.”…Read More

…The size and power is greater than Niagara falls, and is one of two Icelandic waterfalls that are rated in the top ten waterfalls worldwide. It was truly amazing, and for a while, at least, I had it all to myself!Read More
... I should not have been allowed in public. My hair was shooting out in all directions, my clothes beyond dirty, and mud still flinging from my boots with every step. As I had done so many times before, I walked up to people that appeared to be around my age and produced my map...Read More
Alone in an aging cosmos, a traveller’s pilgrimage comes to an end.
"I am here" by Eoin DuffyRead More
"I am Dominica" by Riot HouseRead More
I thought this video by Max Cooper and Tom Hodge is inspiring. "Remnants" is about the self-contained nature of mind and matter.Read More
Camille Seaman is an American photographer who applies portraiture strategies to capture the changing natural environment. I find her work inspiring. Not just on an environmental conservation level, but a creative one as well.Read More
This is one of my two all-time favorite travel oriented videos:
"a story for tomorrow" by gnarly bay
This is a continuation of the blog post Iceland 3...
Almost an hour passed before I had made it back to the main land. A metaphorical change of pants was needed as I slowly walked back to the car. This was my newest top spot. A hidden gem. As I walked down the canyon, I met a woman from Sweden who told me, “when you leave, you may no longer be physical here, by a piece of your heart will always stay. Trust me.

I recently saw this short animation and liked how it transitions from one object to another - staying with the same basic shapes and themes.

This is a short film that explores different emotions, different moods, and their expressions through a hand.
Why Iceland? I have been asked this so many times and I still don't have a good answer. It was a trip more about fate than anything else. A dart decided my destination, and being in the right places at the right times wrote this story.
Max Rive is a great travel photographer. I stumbled on his work while I was debating which career path I should take - law school or media production. I personally find photos inspiring and a helpful reminder of all the places in the world want to go...
Even though I have seen this video more times than I am willing to admit, it is still one of my go-tos for inspiration. I think the visuals are inspiring and the audio design in extremely well crafted.

As I built this website, I decided to publish various stories from the road, and provide some tips and tricks I have learned while backpacking through various different countries.
This first one is a 10 part-series on my Icelandic adventure. Check back each Thursday for another installment.
One of my all time favorite photographers is Benjamin Von Wong - at first glance, his images seem to be composites, but everything you see is real.
