Living in many countries and learning languages makes me feel like a citizen of the world. My mission is to be a bridge and connect individuals to transformational experiences and impactful places around the globe. I want to share the importance of connecting with nature and preserving and regenerating the Earth.
Most Transformational Experience
A month roaming the Kyrgyz steppe on a sidecar with only a backpack was life changing. I was in awe of the majestic mountains, pristine rivers and ever-changing horizons. I shared countless cups of tea in yurts with nomadic pastoralists, sometimes striking conversations that lasted hours, while other times only exchanging a shy smile. There is something extraordinary about a culture that can live off their land, follow the flow of the seasons, and provide their own food and shelter. As Chris McCandless said, “The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”
