be curious ● seek adventure ● tread lightly
A little bit about Me
Welcome to my website! If you’re enthralled with wild places and exploring the wonders of the natural world then you’ve found a kindred spirit! Some of my stories will hopefully inspire you to keep up this healthy addiction and to search for experiences that enrich both yourself and the planet.
For some background, I was born and raised in the Luangwa Valley, one of the most remote wilderness areas in Africa. This instilled in me a passion for the outdoors and nature and I thrive on outdoor adventures and physical challenges. I try to stay curious and am always seeking solutions to the sustainability problems our current human lifestyle imposes on the planet. Ultimately, I hope to be able to live in a way that allows me to benefit from the wonders of this planet while simultaneously giving back and without taking more than I should.
I hope others out there value and want to protect these open spaces as much as I do.
If all this strikes a chord in you, read on and follow the blog posts. Some of my anecdotes may just provide a little inspiration for your next outdoor adventure or inspire you to be more curious about the world around you.
” Blessed are the curious for they shall have adventures.”
“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.”
~ Helen Keller ~
“The world is too much with us; late and soon,
Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers;—
Little we see in Nature that is ours;
We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!
This Sea that bares her bosom to the moon;
The winds that will be howling at all hours,
And are up-gathered now like sleeping flowers;
For this, for everything, we are out of tune;
It moves us not. Great God! I’d rather be
A Pagan suckled in a creed outworn;
So might I, standing on this pleasant lea,
Have glimpses that would make me less forlorn;
Have sight of Proteus rising from the sea;
Or hear old Triton blow his wreathèd horn. “
