About

Over the last five years I've been lucky enough to travel to over 30 countries. I went for all the usual reasons: to find out who I am, what I want to be, and to have a bit of an adventure. I sought a way to live my life to fullest. As I encountered people, I asked them the same question: "What do you know now that you wish you knew when you were 20?" 

This is a pre-sale for a book full of photos from some of the places I've been, as well as snapshot quotes from the conversations I've had with strangers. It has a few pages which explain what I experienced and what I learned during my time abroad, but for the most part its photos and quotes displaying the wisdom of a stranger and discussing how people from all over the world wish they would have lived their lives. 

I hope to use this as a way to help people who feel a little lost find some courage when facing the unknown and chasing down their dreams. 

Risks and challenges

Risks include me printing too many and never selling them, putting me out of money and killing trees for no reason. It may also take a hot minute for me to mail them out if things get frantic.
