/ wanderlove story /
A very lucky, unplanned last minute detour via South America led me to narrowly miss the harrowing tragedy and aftermath of the 2011 Great Touhoku earthquake. Helpless and useless to my country from afar, I was forced to re-evaluate my life plans. What I discovered is I truly craved for a more meaningful existence. With this gradual awakening, I finally combined my two passions of creativity + travel and The Wanderlove Collective was formed in 2014.
As a hopeless dreamer with luck on my side, I've been blessed with so many serendipitous experiences. I truly believe this world needs more art and less war – now more than ever. If we all give a little back with peaceful intentions and positive vibes, then I believe it has the potential to grow into something much bigger than we could every imagine. So let's wander the earth and share the love together.
Safe travels + see you somewhere out there,
