With several trips under our belts, the future is very bright for the continued work of ISLA in Central America. This year we were able to bring down an AED to assist with saving lives in the area, and we were able to increase our aid of lifeguarding with the Nicaraguan Red Cross volunteers to more beaches.

I traveled down to south america and made my home in Buenos Aires for a few short months. During that time I attended the University of Buenos Aires while doing freelance web management and development. It afforded me the opportunity to study Spanish and see much of the country. The experience proved valuable, inspiring and unforgettable.
In the fall of 2008 I embarked with three of my close friends on a bicycle ride from Virginia Beach to Huntington Beach. The ride was organized as a nation wide fundraiser and was successful at getting us the funding necessary to start ISLA. The ride took 61 days total and 3700 miles across the broad spanning continent.
My work with Road Trip Nation took myself and four colleagues in a green RV through two continental passages across 34 states. The experience proved to be life changing as we met incredibly inpsiring people and saw the immensity of culture the US has to offer.
A very dear friend and myself had the unique opportunity of exploring, studying and touring through parts of the middle east. The experience was life changing for me in defining myself, my politics and how I view the world.
I have had the privilege to get to Europe a couple times and really explore the continent in depth. I was able to write, meet people and photograph my experiences.

I have great friends who I have accompanied to places all across the globe. Their spirit of adventure is contagious and I am forever thankful for those people in my life. Miscellaneous travels have brought us to countries in nearly every continent on wild adventures.
