I spent ten years of my life pursuing an ambitious (or perhaps pretentious) career in business and law. I studied for my MBA in Switzerland and after returning took a position at a bank in New York City. Not satisfied with modest masochism, I started to study law at night. It was long and hard, really hard. Still, I stuck with it and in the end found myself in a position at a well known international law firm. I’d made it, or so I thought.
The truth of the matter is I had climbed to the wrong mountaintop. I enjoyed my studies, but life as a keyboard monkey in a cubicle prison left me unfulfilled. I wanted adventure and excitement. I wanted a life that inspired people.
So here it is! Here you will find writings documenting my travels around the globe as I seek adventure and inspiration, for myself and others. It is a sometimes humorous and sometimes ponderous record of my successes (and failures). For a taste of my writing check out the Best Of page. As photography is another passion of mine, you’ll find the writing accompanied by photos, almost always taken by me. For a highlight of some of my favorite photos check out the Photography page and be sure to stop by the Etsy shop to pick up your prints: https://www.etsy.com/shop/AnOutOfTheWayPlace/.
