Thank you for your interest in supporting or partnering with me.

In addition to pursuing a career in mechanical engineering, sharing stories about human-powered adventure and self-discovery is also important to me. My mission in writing articles, taking high-resolution landscape and lifestyle photos, and filming videos, is inspire others to question what drives them and share personal examples of the fulfillment and balance that can ensue from leading a self-directed life.

Although I enjoy sharing my stories and thoughts with you through the forums I mentioned above, there are significant financial and time investments involved with doing so. Your support helps cover my expenses and inspires me to continue creating.

Here are the ways you can support me:
