Adventure & nature have been a big part of my life since childhood. It was an escape from city lights & the concrete jungle, which quite plainly never felt like home.

I assumed this was a temporary phase that I would eventually grow out of.

The years went on as I grew older in pursuit of a meaningful career & the subsequent conformist lifestyles of modern-suburbia.
