North America

beyond the beaten path

The heart of North America beats through towering forests, undulating fields, high-plain deserts, pulsating metropolises and offbeat oases.

I was born with a passion for the map's blank spaces. Exploring them is where I feel most alive and am filled with the greatest sense of wonder and intrigue for the world around.As Nabokov once said..."nostalgia in reverse, the longing for yet another strange land, grew especially strong in spring.” Shall we go forth?

I was raised camping and exploring the South west and US national parks. From this and spending 10 years as a cub and Boy Scout,I have developed a major appreciation for the natural world. For the past 12 years I have organized a rock climbing trip to the magical desert of Joshua Tree NP for 15-150 friends and friends of friends. From this spawned my love of guiding people through nature and up cliffs. I would love to join your team to support facilitating people connecting with nature and adventure. Thank so much! Cheers, Bryan

I’ve been traveling to connect further with myself and nature for the past 2-3 years as a film maker and photographer.It has opened doors for me and expanded my horizons beyond measures. Travel has been a source of inspiration of ephemeral beauty I can capture and share with others. I have never done a group trip but have always desired to drive so. This sounds like an interesting opportunity to make it happen and share some experiences with my audience.
