Hey Everyone!

As many of you know I'll be embarking on the 3000km Te araoroa trail across New Zealand beginning this October, what many of you don't know is why I'm doing this.

What can I say? I love adventure, I love gathering experiences and living my life to it's fullest. I've had to battle a few demons along the way, but finally a year ago I decided to sell pretty much everything I own ( Tv, furniture, decorations, kitchen appliances etc..) and instead invest in a good backpack and fill it with the most durable and lightweight survival gear I could get my hands on so I could live minimal. Happiness is found within! Not the possesions you surround yourself with.

As many of you know I work my summers in remote fishing lodges in northern canada. I love the experience and the work, but mainly it's because I've always had a deep rooted connection to nature. I've always been intrigued by bushcraft and survival techniques, but more recently I've become extremely passionate about it.

I've been learning more about carpentry, fishing, old methods of firecraft, distiguishing plants and foods to forage in the wild, sheltering techniques, fishing, smoking food and cooking foods.

I'll be doing a minimalistic approach in New Zealand, this will be a way for me to truly live off of the land, fish for trout, make fire, gather food and good drinking water and making shelter in diffrent environmental factors. In this I want to give back into the world the experiences I learn and will be documenting the entire adventure through Gopro and writting.

This journey does come at an expense,  and I've been working my butt off making funds. This is where you come in- 

I'm looking to raise some extra funds for my travels for emergency funds. This will include food, housing, travel and shipping costs that may incur during my travels.

What's in it for you? Any donation is appreciated, but if you donate $25 or more I can offer you a Large Print of one of my landscapes from my travels that would originally cost upwards of $100+
This print would be either picked up or sent to you in May next year.

ANYONE who donates will be set up on an email list and will be notified of updates.
