I’m an author, journalist and entrepreneur originally from Syracuse, New York.
I started writing under my real name in April of 2012 to chronicle a hitchhiking trip I took from Syracuse to Portland, Oregon, in order to see America, shock myself out of my comfort zone, and change my life. The trip lasted six months and took me more than 3,500 miles across sixteen states and through several of America’s major cities, including Chicago, Minneapolis and Seattle. Since then, I've become an author, publishing self-help guides, essay collections, memoirs and more.
