In 2013, I left NYC and the world of corporate media behind. With the support of readers like you, I traveled to over 35 countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. I am currently living in Berlin, where I am researching the path forward for a healthy online media and writing a sci-fi memoir based on my journeys. Please continue to fund my creative exploration.
