Getting There is Half the Fun.
In the 1950s, Cunard Line used that phrase to market trans-Atlantic ocean liner voyages.
I find that it captures, more than anything, my personal spirit of adventure.
These pages detail my adventures by all modes and methods.
My partial goal here is to create a site that harkens back to an earlier, simpler time on the Internet, where quality, personal, focused in-depth writing reigned supreme over flashy design and social media feeds. I’m fully vested in the technological skills of the 21st century, but I still find that I tend to get the most excited when I find a website from another time more focused on substance and content than style. The simplicity of this site is a very conscious design decision; I design websites for a living which look much flashier. I feel that something has been lost in digital storytelling of late, and I hope this “retro” platform will help regain some of it.
Please enjoy the site, and feel free to drop me a line!
