In the final days of our last Momentom Collective Artist Residency in Nicaragua, I sat down with Tony Tobias to recap the season: 4 International Residencies and 2 Festival Theme Camps and Mainstage Performances across 4 countries, over 200 Residents with over 1000 workshops held...Definitely a season for the books!
I have SO MUCH LOVE to all the people, artists, teachers and healers that continue to get called to our project and community, for everyone's continuous support in this cocreation and support in each other's pe...
Malaysia: the 31st country I’ve had the privilege to travel in, has been a challenging one. On an extended visa run during our Momentom Indonesia Residency I did a decided to do a deep dive into Borneo to see some of the last orang utans in the wild, it’s pretty clear why they are being wiped out along with the majority of the rainforest and life on the World’s 3rd largest island: cheap palm oil. ⠀
Flying from Kota Kinabalu to Sandakan all you see are rows of palms trees or cleared rainforest (to plant more palm tr...

I've been home for one month and still processing the previous 10 month season with Momentom Collective leading our Artist Residencies and creative communities around the world. Still so much to process and reflect on from so many incredible people sharing skills, inspiration and ideas.
I teamed up with Tony Tobias to get a snapshot a...
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...
...And Other Adventures on a 5-Day Journey from Saskatoon to Sumbawa
...aaaand I'm in China??
During my wild journey and series of layovers from Canada to Indonesia (only a cheeky 5 day adventure with 4 flights, two trains and a ferry), I find myself with 12 hours in the Shanghai airport. So, naturally I spark up a conversation in the immigration line, find an awesome layover friend, Ali, who's also keen to escape the bland monotony of international airports and BOOM, we're experiencing the modern metropolis of ...
Two words to live, or travel by...or is that the same thing?
My Kula guru CJ Ananada (big smile on the right) once beautifully told me that above any lesson to take away from our three-week intensive yoga teacher course, if there were any two words to live by for a better, more fullfilling life it would simply state:
Everything else will follow and manifest as long as you are tapping into the moment and applying yourself to it. Like a continous life meditation waking into mindful...
A Candid Conversation with Mike Spencer Bown at Word on the Street Festival
You could say I was a little excited to converse with someone who’s considered to be more thoroughly traveled than anyone else in history. What happened was the most fascinating 50-minute conversation of my life.
Meet Mike Spencer Bown – the World’s Most Travelled Man. A Canadian who currently resides in Calgary, but he’s been everywhere else the last 26 years – literally. He’s one of about 300 people who has been to every country on the planet (abo...
A Photo Journal Revealing the Flair of the Mexican Fair:
Carnivals and fairs around the world all follow the same rulebook for cheap entertainment: greasy junk food, unsafe ways to spin in circles and games designed to rip you off via freaky carnies. In Mexico—where shenanigans are more prevalent, drinking is the national pastime and overall standards are always diminished—the carnival I experienced in Sayulita exemplifies just that. It is a night of drunken laughs, questionable safety and copious head scratching. Come...
