What do you do?

I help make travel awesome, and set you up to succeed while traveling.


Traveling *is* awesome. A lot of things make it less awesome (bad directions, ripoffs, concerns about safety). I'm here to help bust myths, debunk legends, understand facts, and give first-hand advice.

What should we read?

Beyond my own (I'm really proud of Becoming a Digital Nomad), I'd have to say Characteristics of Games by George Skaff Elias, Richard Garfield, and K. Robert Gutschera.
