“As within so without. As above so below.

We live in the same energy.

When you start to realize that, and act on it.

The universe starts shoveling light into you.

And you can’t do anything but give it away.

Then you move from a space holder into a light emanator.”

-Keith Wilson

Why is ceremonial cacao different than standard cacao? 

How can the act of play transcend consciousness?

What is the ultimate gift humanity holds for the earth?

These are some of the questions I ask and discusses with Keith Wilson - also known as '...

"Loathe the coast caress
late light for the shedding

the sun's constant state of setting"

-from 'Blue Violets'

I've just launched my new second music video! My track 'Blue Violets' is a beat poetry piece I wrote and recorded with Earl Pereira of The Steadies a few summers back. It was so fun to put some psychedelic visuals to it with the help of our in-house Momentom Collective videographer Tony Tobias as we walked, danced and ripped a Tuk Tuk through San Marcos on Lake Atitlan, Guatemala!

Creating a community from scratch isn’t exactly a walk up a volcano…or, wait.

We've all seen and admired the new age community from the movie The Beach with Leonardo Dicaprio. The freedom, connection, adventure and struggle of having a tight knit collective living together in paradise - like it's all happened in a serendipitous stroke of fate.

On paper, it's perfect.

In photos, it's surreal

From word of mouth, can this exist?

The concepts always sound too good to be true.

...and no. These communities don't just pop up ma...

Guatemala X Getting Sick X Expectation = Perspective

Every traveler has one of those days.
A day where things just don’t come together as planned

            and it spirals downward

            until you start to question

                                    why you’re even traveling in the first place....

We did it! 

$1000 has been donated to the amazing intiative that is the Integral Heart Foundation and it couldn't have happened without everyone's support behind buying, sharing and supporting my book: Tales of the Modern Nomad

Muchas gracias a todos!

This money might not be a lot to some people, 
but it's a lot for a self-published traveling author
and especially a big amount that will go a long ways towards the IHF initiative to help educate, feed and give a caring home for over 80 street kids here in Guatema...

Backpacker culture has taken over the travel world. 

Today's youth are vying to break out of their routine homelife to traverse the world, explore new cultures and get a blast of new experiences. The end result has been a surge of backpackers looking to get the best bang for their buck - and hostels around the world have stepped up their game to deliver the experience. 

These are my favourite hostels I've stayed at during my 10 years of backpacking, taken from my upcoming book Tales Of The Modern Nomad - Monks, Mushroom...

Tourist Anomalies When Adjusting To Life In Central America


What constitutes regular life for the locals between Mexico and Panama does not always come across as normal to visiting tourists and expats. Sometimes you have to read between the cultural lines to realize that the oddity you are experiencing might not be so strange to the other people around you. If you find yourself immersed in the culture of Latin American life, don’t forget to embrace the many ridiculous and trivial ‘problems’ you might encounter.

Here are...
