I am currently on the road, hitchhiking around the world shooting a documentary, or twelve. I am hoping to inspire those around me through unorthodox, and sometimes extreme methods of living. I have decided that in order to accurately measure and also to enable the best possible footage I will not spend a single dollar on food, shelter, transportation or anything personal for the next full year, and only sustain on what has been generously and spontaneously provided for me.
After witnessing enough negative behaviour in complete strangers to complete strangers to last a lifetime, I have decided to set out to accomplish many things. Prove the world is not such a nasty place full of untrustworthy people, open the minds of society that anything is possible, and that a new friend or opportunity is just a conversation away. When common courtesy seems to have evaded us in 2010, I am setting out in search of the good in the human race. Where have all the good people gone?
I will use my social skills, resourceful thinking and life experiences to accomplish a highly controversial move; travel the globe on less than $500 and breakdown every sterotype and false perception. Its going to be tough sometimes, but I know that what is waiting for me will rock the socks off of everyone reading this. Just wait 'til you see the videos.....

Into the Wild.

It doesn't bother me when people say I'm like this guy.
They usually say it as their initial reaction when Ive just told them I'm hitching the world. Well Chris McCandless-who I have read extensively on- was slightly different. Like I said, it doesn't bother me, and I usually correct them, and let them know the slight difference between the young man who ditched everything to live simply in the Alaskan wilderness to find himself, and separate from society. I am also an adventurous minded young man, however completing several projects while trying to propel myself into a career path using this as an initial platform.
In fact, I'm being very realistic, and you will see in a few posts what I'm referring to....
It differs between the people who say it, some are being interested, some curious, some believe I am just like the kid, some think I'm crazy, some are just ignorant.
Ive had a spring breaker yell "Yo, into the wild!!" from a passing car while his Kanye West CD blared over the speakers of his Mother's Nissan Altima. Fuck. You.
Way handsomer too, oui?
Actually, don't answer that.
