I’ve spent my life working, and dreaming of grand adventures.  At this point in my life I’m not afraid to fail, or look like an idiot, or get lost.  I have too much to lose if I don’t try.  The site is all about those adventures; outdoors, indoors, and inside my head:) Alone, and accompanied by my many friends and family.  You’ll get to know them, and me. And maybe you’ll be inspired – to Grow Bolder.

“I think it’s going to be about having and curating adventures, about stretching ourselves beyond what we ever imagined we could do, about celebrating our True Selves and outwitting our egos.  Because the people who mean the most to me will still be there if I fail.  And if I poop my pants my friend Laura will laugh, but she’ll get me a clean pair of underwear and we’ll have a glass of wine at the finish.  I’d like to show our children that adventure and courage are not only for the young.   Sometimes the adventure is amazingly beautiful, sometimes it isn’t pretty.  I have a wonderful tribe of friends and family. We’re having a hell of a good time, and when we’re not, we’re in good company.  We’ll be traveling, cooking, creating, drinking wine, exploring, and probably laughing at each other.  These are our real life adventures; one wine cellar, stellar hike, and accidental laxative ingestion at a time.”  (from my first blog post)
