“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
— Mark Twain

Hi, I’m Nathan.


I’m a traveler, adventurer, and entrepreneur, a raw-vegan chef and technologist. Thanks for visiting my personal site. I write mostly about travel, personal development, and languages and culture. My current themes are entrepreneurship and building an anti-fragile lifestyle.

My biggest passions are travel, languages and culture. Traveling to new lands, speaking the native tongues of people and really communicating with them on a deep, heartfelt level — that’s what sets my soul on fire. I’ve traveled to several countries and continents, and am always yearning to visit even more of the world during this short time we have on earth. My greatest passions are travel, culture and language. Food would be a close second.

My highest value is freedom and I try and live by the Kekich Credo and Principles by Ray Dalio.

I’m a huge believer in adding value to other’s lives and producing more than I consume.

Some things I like are:

Travel, languages, culture, gardening, vegan food, permaculture, natural living, zen, mindfulness, natural building, decentralization, crypto-currency, technology, history, strategy, Gummi Bears (Disney show), Zelda, Pai-Sho, elves, hobbits, ents and tea.

Total INTJ and have a growth mindset.

I’m always interested in connecting with people with similar interests and values, so if you’d like to discuss any or all of the above, please drop me a note. (Contact page). I’d love to hear from you.
