In 2015, I left my job behind for a life of exploring. In just a matter of a few months I had visited over 12 countries, 45 cities, 35 states, countless national parks, taken thousands of photographs and did tons of soul-searching.
My search not only uncovered a deep passion for exploration; which I now believe to be the essence of the human spirit, but it also led to the birth of The Modern Day Explorer and allowed me to reconnect with my love for art and creation.
I am a first-generation American, born to Nicaraguan immigrants and raised in California, where I’ve spent my entire life. And although you can almost always find me traveling (both near and far), Yucca Valley is where I’m currently based out of.
