Travel and Adventure | The Freedom Fighter

Go. Grow.

For the past 4-years, I have been living as a “Digital Nomad”. Earning a living on the internet, and living in new and different countries every few months. Despite the temporary nature of this lifestyle, I focus on slow, meaningful travel.

I choose the country or city that I want to live in based on a personal project or bucket list item that I plan to accomplish. I feel that the experience of a new city, meeting new people, and experiencing new cultures continually force me to learn, grow and see the world differently.

My aim is to capture and share these experiences, as a way to inspire The Freedom Fighter community to take action and find the magic that exists in all of our lives.


Sharing my photography journey through pictures from the road.
