You’ve gotten the chance to see the world over the past few years through your career on YouTube. What are some of your favourite places and why?

Favourite places my career has taken me so far - I’ve been very luck to travel to several different continents over the last couple of years, but my top destinations are Canada and Costa Rica. Canada has everything you’d need to live a lifetime of adventures, the Rocky mountains are incredible and Canadians are the most friendly people! Costa Rica offers incredible beaches, mountains, volcanos, rain forests, surfing and so much Pura Vida from the locals, an adventurers paradise.

Who are some of the photographers that have inspired you to do more?

I follow over 500 photographers on Instagram, which is where I consume the most images, there are heaps of up and coming artists like emitoms, aaronbhall, andrewtkearns and joelthorpe who inspire me everyday, and then there are the legends who never disappoint; alexstrohl​, thiswildidea, jimmy_chin, ForrestMankins, trashhand, fursty, check out the people I follow for more!

What travel destinations can we look forward to from your photos next?

I’ll mainly be in South Africa & California for the rest of the year, but I’ve got a lot of big road trips planned for 2016 including New Zealand, Thailand, (all of) Southern Africa, Canada but I’d also love to explore the U.S way more.

November is gonna be amazing, feeling v blessed ⚡️ I rented a tiny cabin right on a pond in Maine (stocked with this canoe!), I’m heading to NYC for a quick hello this week and the following week good friends are flying in for a little photo shoot. The time we are given surely is better spent with folks who love us for us. by thiswildidea
