I’m Jay: the flat foot adventurer.
My goal in life is simple: I want to travel, have adventures, and write about them.
I jokingly refer to myself as the flat foot adventurer: with flat feet, bow legs and no sense of direction I’m the person least likely to be an adventurer.
But that’s also part of what drives me: the desire for adventure and overcoming adversity. I hiked the Inca Trail and drove a pack of huskies across the Arctic Circle. I moved my life to Australia where I continue to seek out new adventures.
I go places and do things on my own, seeking adventure. Not everything is a big, dramatic adventure — sometimes adventure comes in smaller places or unexpected ways.
Through my writing, I aim to inspire, entertain and educate an audience.
I want to inspire adventurous people to travel and have adventures of their own. I want to provide entertainment and escapism to people who prefer that to travel. And I want them all to learn something new from my travels.
Since I was a child, I have loved to write and tell stories. I had a head full of crazy ideas and a burning desire to write them all down. Not much has changed, I’m still that little boy, writing down his stories for anyone that will read them.
I dream of travelling the length of North & South America in one trip, of finding and writing about Australia’s coolest small towns, of the pyramids and volcanoes of Balinese jungles.
