It's a little scary to think this picture includes all my worldly possessions.

Who I Am

I’m a 27 year-old from Philadelphia, PA, who for the past five years worked as a management consultant helping companies take products to market and improve their operations and strategies.  I did what many young professionals do: worked hard during the week, caught up with friends and relaxed on the weekends, and took an occasional vacation.  

What I've Done

Over the past year and for reasons discussed in this blog, I decided to change my life.  In April 2016 I:

  1. left my job;
  2. donated or sold nearly all of my belongings, except for what fits in my new backpack; and
  3. set off on a journey around the world, starting with an extended stay in San Pancho, a small Mexican fishing village.

Where I'm Going

I've mapped out my planned route around the world below.  It's intentionally unspecific and all subject to change (you'll see I already veered off-track).  We'll see how far I get!  You can read more about my current location here.
