Hi there!

I’m Chris – a web developer, entrepreneur, photographer, traveler, and aspiring film maker.

For years I’ve dreamed of being a full-time traveler, and starting September 1, 2017, I’ve made the leap. I’ve built this site to chronicle my adventures – and misadventures – as I travel, photograph, film, work, and figure out how to make this new endeavor work.

To start with, I’ve mapped out my first 6 weeks of location independence – a road trip west from my prior home in Boston, Massachusetts, out through the great national parks of the western US and Canada.

If you’d like to follow along, I’ll be posting regularly on YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook.

Thanks for reading, and happy travels!

– Chris Mavricos, September 2017
