For 21 years the Tri-State area has been the only place I've known... I am setting out to change that. I am in search of an adventure.
When I think about America, I realize that I know nothing about the country that I live in. There are so many different types of people and lifestyles all across the country and I want to set out and discover America before it's too late. What used to be a rite of passage, the Great American Road Trip has diminished in this generation, and before I am too old or too busy to take the time to see it all, I want to explore - and I want to film my journey and my experience for others who do not have the opportunity to take this adventure with me. I will be interviewing locals at each city, filming differences in lifestyles, and exposing a real sense of the culture of each place that I stop in. I hope that this will not only contribute to my own personal journey, but also to a shared experience for those who I meet along the way and those interested in the project, like you.
With a crew of 5 people accompanying me from New York to California - we have 16 days to travel and 11 cities to see!
