Currently I'm co-founder of We Love Motogeo, a company developed to document and share my unassisted Trans-world Motorcycle Adventure which, at this time, has covered 5 continents and 32 countries. Aside from my duties as writer, story-teller, expedition-lead, technology (cord) wrangler and fixer of all things broken, my role continues to grow toward partnerships, inspiration and consulting services for others looking to experience the dream of overland travel in foreign countries.
I'm also co-founder of The Lost for Good Project - a non-profit organization that utilizes my motorcycle travels around the globe as a source for fundraising and sponsorship, supporting the people, communities and grass-roots organizations that are creating lasting, responsible and sustainable change within their regions. The projects purpose is to help bring attention to these lesser-known endeavours, highlight their work and support them in their goals.
Formerly, I was a founding partner and the guiding hand behind community platforms, feature development (commerce), and user experience (web platforms) at Veer and have accrued nearly 20 years experience in the stock-imagery and typography fields. For most of those years, I've been passionately pre-occupied with understanding how people interact with technology at a variety of companies including Adobe Systems, Verity, and Image Club Graphics. During my career, I've been fortunate enough to win a number of awards for my work, including top-honors from SXSWi (2003), Communication Arts (2006), a Webby Award (2008) and Applied Arts (2003, 2004, 2008).
During this time, I've spent much of my time working with fully-integrated creative+technical teams, evangelizing simplicity in application design, presenting & sharing ideas, and working to get those ideas off of paper and into the real world.
