About

n2354216_699I am a 38 year old professional and former politician who decided to pull the trigger on a life-long dream to explore the world. I believe that life is a book that is filled with different chapters that a person needs to open and close throughout their lives.

This website and blog will document my next chapter – a journey of exploration, reflection and service. This personally funded sabbatical takes my love of travel and the intrigue of learning about other cultures and combines them with opportunities to volunteer with nonprofits around the world.  The journey will have me travel to over 25 countries on all seven continents.  Whether it is hiking the Inca Trail, exploring the Serengeti, celebrating Bastille Day or volunteering with Habitat for Humanity, I know that the next sixteen months will be a challenge and a life changing experience.  

I hope to see you on the road.

Sam
