The Coloradoan: Leaving the American dream to photograph the country

From the writers at The Coloradoan.

The traditional American Dream is to get married, buy a home, raise two kids and work until retirement age, right?

Well, my life never seemed to take the traditional path, even if it was what I envisioned for myself.

And when multiple tragedies struck my world in late 2012 and early 2013, I questioned a lot about what really made me happy.

Readers of the Coloradoan who have followed my articles since 2010 know that I love to travel and photograph wildlife in our beautiful state. When life taught me the hard lesson that life is short and unpredictable, I decided to put a new path in place for my life.

In March of 2013, I left my corporate marketing job to build a business traveling, writing and photographing full time.

But as I traveled more and discovered more beautiful places near and far to Colorado, I found the joys of home ownership didn’t outweigh the responsibilities of managing a home. I no longer wanted to deal with mowing a lawn, mending a roof or keeping a three-bedroom house clean for my pets and I.

And as I traveled more and met more people on the road, I found I started to build a list of places I wanted to visit. I called the list A Year in an RV.
