Story

Location Independence Evangelist and Practicing Slow Traveler
Introduction
I publish the UnwireMe blog and travel the world in search of purpose and a fulfilling lifestyle.

Currently in a quest to travel overland from Canada to Patagonia.

I love exploring and can't say no to a good cup of coffee.  If given half the chance, will try to convince you to become a digital nomad, live your dreams and travel the world.

You can reach me anytime through my website, or drop by and SAY HI.
