STUDY ABROAD (2008)

I first went to Europe in 2008 for a summer study-abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark. It was my first time out of the United States. I studied at Copenhagen Business School, explored around the city, country, and continent. I wound up going to many western European countries in the process; confirming my love for multi-cultural experiences and transnational understanding.

SUMMER SOJOURN (2010) 

Minimalism and self-discovery were major themes of my 2010 sojourn throughout the United States and Canada. The adventure began with a cross-country road trip to New York City. It transformed my professional and personal philosophy- and included 30+ states, weddings, sailing, running, George Washington, and love for mankind.  Needless to say, it was one of the most important decisions I've made in life. You can read more about my self-discovery, philosophical growth, and passion for mankind with my first entry here.

BIRTHRIGHT (2011)

Immediately after my 2010 walk-about, I received a grant (Taglit Birthright) to fly to Israel for 10 days. I extended my trip in the region by 45 days and additionally visited Jordan, Turkey, and Egypt. In a world without western norms and comforts, I began to see comfort in patience, time, diversity, and love. It wasn't until after I got back to the United States that I put my career, confidence, and maturation into practice. My travels included a marathon in Luxor, the Arab Spring and Egyptian Revolution of 2011, Petra, the Pyramids, Ephesus, and more!
