Hello my dear friends!
Thanks for stopping by.
In my life, I've had the great fortune of being surrounded by beautiful souls who've empowered me to become the person I am, and to have had the chance to live unforgettable experiences, through my work, and in my travels, both alone and in the great company.
For many years, I've had the desire to share my favorite stories, cherished memories & hard earned lessons I've gathered throughout the first 29.6 years of my life. This blog will be a vehicle for this very purpose.
Some of it will have to do with music; behind the scenes of the creative process of my first EP, Concepts, and all the projects that came before and since. Some of it will be about the adventures I've had while having the good fortune to travel the world. (I've got a number of old journal entries written while traveling that I'll share. These entries contain some of my favorite reflections/expressions/optimistic outlooks and challenging, vulnerable moments). I'll also take the time to share video content that is directly related to this blog, both new content as well as historical adventure vlogs from my archive of footage not shared over the years.
Ultimately, the entirety of this project will be infused with my intention of sharing what I've received, what I have been kindly given, with the hope it will inspire and offer some perspective. I hope that the development of this project will also greatly help me by giving me a sense of purpose & contribution. I've felt very human as of late, and this is an opportunity for me to be honest with myself as well as trust in a project I dreamt of starting more than 6 years ago, and finally begin today :)
It is great to see you here, I look forward to meeting you in the future. Thank you for your time :)

PS: The title of this project comes from a mantra I often repeat to myself on adventures/upon reaching the aim of my objective, a hard won destination, a challenging summit, a once in a lifetime experience. It's an expression of joy and reverence, a reminder to enjoy the present moment and the beauty that is precisely where we find ourselves, here and now.
