I grew up watching Indiana Jones and listening to Jimmy Buffett, so I have my father to thank for poisoning my mind towards travel and adventure from a young age. I knew growing up I wanted to travel and do good, but I never was sure how that was going to come about.

Eventually life took me in an unexpected direction and I converted to Christianity. As an outsider walking into the faith, I was able to dodge most of the bigotry and politics and just got to focus on the core of who Jesus was--a guy who traveled around with his friends, teaching them to serve and love people while serving and loving God.

Following that model, I moved to Tijuana to work with a mission whose focus was on providing humanitarian efforts while teaching about the need for us to work in the world. I lived there for a little under two years. Since then, I've lived in San Diego, the Maldives, and have spent a little time in Dubai and Colombo, Sri Lanka.

Ideally, I'd love to join a team working against human trafficking in an area that would allow me to both produce travel and educational media while serving a righteous cause. We'll see what happens.
