In 2013, I gave up my home, sold most of my belongings and embraced a nomadic life. I speak about my unique life and travel philosophy at corporate events, travel meetups, conferences and workshops, on topics ranging from what it’s like to travel solo to making a living from a passion like travel blogging. My aim is to inspire and entertain with stories from the road, and encourage the audience to think different.
