In 2008, I began taking long road trips throughout the United States. I first fallowed my heart to New Mexico. I had been called to the enchanted lands for years, but I never really knew why. Needless to say, every visit has been a fulfilling sip from the fountain of life. This only grew my curiosity for what beauty was out there. My wanderlust for the open road led me to many life changing experiences and connections with some really beautiful kindred spirits. I usually chose to travel by myself and for segments of around three months. I began taking trips from Georgia to Maine and later New Orleans to Nova Scotia. I cherish time alone in the car and feel it offers a chance for reflection and observation to simultaneously collaborate in ways productive for the soul. Eventually I decided to convert a white Chevy cargo van in to a incognito camper van. Hidden behind the flakey white paint and plumber motif is a magical mobil cabin constructed from lumber milled from my Appalachian hideaway and recycled pallets. This allowed for me to really dive deeper in to the rambling life style which I had become addicted to. I sought out to learn from new places and even more so with the intentions of "finding myself." As my travels continued I found myself lost in all the right ways. Eventually, I had slithered through forty two states. Every place reveals its unique charm and woven songs. I have come to believe that truly connecting with yourself stems down to the roots of soul and the ability to love yourself. Here you learn to be quiet and listen. Here you build your character and respect for life. These photographs where taken during my travels.
