After hiking the Appalachian Trail I was looking for ways to minimize my life, my possessions, and my expenses, and #VanLife seemed like the ideal solution.

In 2014 I moved into a self converted Honda Element and lived on the streets of Santa Barbara, CA while holding down a regular job, as well as serving as the youngest Club President of the Rotary Club of Santa Barbara.

In 2015 I upgraded to a 1985 Volkswagen Vanagon Westfalia campervan, continued living in Santa Barbara for a few more months, secured a Digital Nomad income stream, quit my job, and hit the road to live and travel fulltime.
