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?

An avid traveller since I have memory of myself, I’ve been working as a travel designer for high-demanding clients since the age of 25,travelling around the globe to deliver the finest tailored experiences – a luxury traveller by profession, and a backpacker by vocation. I called home places like China and Israel before my wandering soul fell in love with Peru. I then quit my previous job and decided to start a new path with a main focus on sustainability – a beautiful journey that’s taking me closer to inspiring pioneers in the industry, like-minded travellers, local communities, and Nature

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
