In The Midst Of It All



When I graduated college, I instantly knew that what I wanted to do was to create travel-heavy content regardless of where I was going to work. I knew that I wanted to be somewhere that would allow me to go places, see people and experience so much more than I'd had in the years I was backpacking solo across the beautiful lands of the Philippines.

I got lucky when I scored my first official job. I got an opportunity to do much more than a fraction of what I dreamed to do in a job - to host, take photos, make videos, discover music, and most importantly, I got to see extraordinary people and places and learn about their stories.

Now that I have quit that job (more on this later), I am placed in an incredibly challenging position to build and grow my brand from the ground up, and am very well aware that doing this as an independent unit is nothing compared to when I was working under a bigger one. At this stage, and in the simplest of terms, I am just figuring out how to this on my own. 

Lately, and I'm sure you have noticed, I have been heavily involved in a lot of local events. It is a slow, relentless, almost-impossible process to work as a freelancer/entrepreneur/whatever-you-wanna-call it-er, but being the stubborn noob that I am, I'm trying to make it work. I may have mentioned it a million times on this space, but I don't think I've said it enough. However confused, hurt, distressed, or however noisy the path on which I am is, I am comforted knowing that, in the midst of it all, there is always the beach.
