I’ve travelled between 20 and 25 countries this year. I’ve earned this opportunity through relentless work ethic and passion for what I do. This blog post and accompanying video will show you what I’ve been up to this year, as well as what’s in my camera bag.
My life has not been an overnight success. I’ve worked very hard for everything I’ve been able to do and for everything I have. Right after I graduated from High School I was arrested essentially for being homeless. I was staying in an abandoned hospital and had lit a small fire to keep me warm. Someone walking by spotted smoke coming out of one of the windows and called the police and was arrested for trespassing. My Grandparents helped me get my first apartment, and also used to bring me food every Sunday from their butcher shop. The Government of Ontario gave me a cheque every month to help with rent. At that point I was working on my business relentlessly and could see my future success. Now finally, through all the hard work I’m able to live the life I’ve wanted to. With hard work comes great pleasure, and I’m only getting started.
