About Me


To travel the world making travel videos for


I make travel videos where ever I visit.

The philosophy of what I do is that I believe, wherever I go, I will find good people willing to show me their town. I hope to film the whole world.

I'm independent, self funded, make some pocket money off youtube adsense.

Yes it is a crazy dream but I want to try it.

Looking for passionate people to feature in a video tour of their town. See for more detailsI have been known to feature couchsurfers in my videos :)San Francisco - - - - - - - - - - - a great way to get passionate locals to promote their home towns :)


The more I see
The less I know
About all the things I thought were wrong or right
& carved in stone
So, don't ask me about
War, Religion, or God
Love, Sex, or Death
Everybody knows what's going wrong with the world
But I don't even know what's going on in myself.
(Song - Slow Emotion Replay - The The)
