This is what I love
The people I meet, the places I see, the mistakes I make, and the things I learn. I love it, and I’m always looking for ways to have more of it.
Saving the planet. Saving money. Saving my health. Saving after each game (just kidding).
Blogging, poetry, photography, making cool things, and always living a creative life. Always.
My triumphs, my struggles, my insight. I like to help people by sharing way too much information.

If there is one thing I’ve learned during my last 2 months travelling the south island of New Zealand it’s the art of letting go.

As a traveller, there comes a point where you need to feel at home.

Cape Reinga was one of those places that once I was there, I knew that everything that I’ve done in my life, all that has happened so far, and all of the decisions that I had made was to lead me to this exact moment in my life.

You know when you’re in the middle of a great day, and you think to yourself “yep, I think this might be the best day ever”?

I was sitting in a pub with my new friends, bantering like I would with my closest friends back home. I introduced myself to a Dutch guy who was sitting beside me, and his English friend sitting across from him.

I am and always will be a daydreamer. It is the reason I took art and creative writing in high school and why I studied film. I enjoyed drawing but never seemed to care for colouring or shading, and especially disliked doing any sort of background. I doubt this is really indicative of most artists out there, but Read more about Travel: A Daydreamers Canvas[…]
It was Canadian Thanksgiving back home, and I woke up in my hostel racking my brain for reasons to be grateful. It wasn’t hard. Here I am, in one of the most beautiful places on Earth, meeting new people, going on adventures, and following my dreams. Shwing.

If you know me, you’ll know that I cry. A lot. Grief, happiness, surprise, you name it; it’s 95% certain that I’ll be moved to tears.
