I quit my job in corporate America to experience life unleashed. My dog, Max and I are living on the road in a van and wandering the country.
I'm taking portraits of the people I come across as well as photographs of interesting things I see along the way.
Thank you for following us on our adventure.
In May, I embarked on my dream adventure. I went out on the open road to seek answers within myself. I wanted a change. I wanted to learn more about who I am, reflect on where I have been, and figure out where I am going. I saw some amazing places. I met some wonderful people. Throughout this journey, I kept reflecting on what’s really important in this lifetime.
For me, it’s the people that have crossed my path in life and who are in it today. Not only the loved ones I’ve lost, but the ones I’ve set out to meet and the ones I happen to come across by chance. I love the everyday “American Story.” Everyone has dreams, goals, disappointments, and significant moments that have changed the direction of their life. I want to know what they are. I want to know what moves you. How did you get to where you are today? What’s your life story?
The next part of my journey is finding you. One personal story for each day. There is always something to learn from others. Who has touched your life and why? Is there someone you know of that I should feature? How about yourself? What was the most significant moment in your life that brought you to where you are today?
As I continue to travel, I want to introduce you to the men and women of this country. I am looking forward to this next chapter. Stay tuned for more…
