Land-Lubbing, Do-Gooding, & Dirt-Dabbling
It’s been a while since I wrote a personal update. It’s taken me a long time to process all my feelings surrounding this big life transition from more than a decade as a permanently nomadic sailor, to a land-lubber living on a small island in the South Pacific … It’s no surprise that after […]

Steer With Your Heart: Film Release!
