A Freedom and a Purpose Found Through Tragedy

My journey began October 18th, 2008 when I was in a head on collision with a drunk driver. It cost me my left arm, my left leg, and nearly my life.

I celebrate this day every year.

My gratitude for this life and those of you have been with me on this journey since day one is never ending. There are more adventures to be had and I’d like to continue to show you spectacular parts of the world. Additionally, I’d like to bring to light some of the more devastating parts.

My circumnavigation is complete, but the journey is not.
