About Me

Hi, My name is Jonathan!

The thought of giving everything up, walking away from society and living in a van has been at the forefront of my mind since before I could drive. I've been avidly traveling since I graduated high school, working long hours in the summer to fund trips in the off season and accepting performance contracts that take me all over the world. Traveling has opened my eyes to cultural and systemic differences prompting me to realize I can be happier with less. 

After a 50 day road trip, a brief stint of dabbling in LA and a lot of back and forth; I took the dive. I flew home to NYC, donated everything I owned and downsized into a 1998 GMC Safari...a van. I now travel the country spreading positivity and advocating for people experiencing housing insecurity and those alike. This is my blog and these are my stories.
