I am a simple guy from East Tennessee. I am a twenty-something seeking to live life to the fullest and I want to inspire others to awaken their adventure.
I am currently an undergrad at East Tennessee State University earning a bachelors degree in international affairs and a minor in marketing. After I graduate in December of 2017, I am looking to pursue adventures full-time whether that is working behind a computer or leading trips around the world.
I like many things, but love a few. I am passionate about photography and telling stories. I love walking in the woods, floating down a river, brewing coffee, having deep conversations, reading inspiring people's work, and traveling to places I have never been.
My photography and creative work focuses on telling stories. My photography style is a mix between lifestyle, travel, landscape, and documentary. I don't want the fake non-sense that portrays one-side of my subjects or the heavily edited photos. I want to capture the story of my subjects and share it with others. For me, every photo is a chapter of a story.
My writing focuses on inspiring others to awaken their adventure. I only try to share what I know or what I learn. Therefore many of my blogs include themes like outdoors, minimalism, recent inspirations to me, and traveling. I started blogging in August of 2014, however most of those posts don't seem to capture what I have learned in recent years. In order to get better at writing and to overcome some creative insecurity, I revamped and have become more intentional about inspiring in the above themes.
Through what I learn and discover, I want to inspire my readers to become passionate about what they do and awaken the adventure that is in all of us.
Thanks for checking out what I have to share.
