🤘 Rockstar • General director, Global Convoy

Through seasonal work and good friends I have had the pleasure to work around the world. Born and raised in California, I have had the pleasure of working in some amazing places from Yosemite National Park, to sailing around St. John in the Caribbean.

Living in Bansko Bulgaria, I am a co-founder of the Global Convoy, an alternative travel group that encourages sustainable group travel. Our first trip was a circumnavigation of the world and since then we have focused on smaller trips that include everyone. In 2018 we released a documentary about the adventure on Amazon Prime simply called Global Convoy. I since then I have focused on Audio engineering and Voice acting as well and public speaking. I produce, edit and voice both The Travel Massive weekly updates podcast and Global Conversation podcast. As a motivational speaker, I hope to continue to share our story and inspire others.
