I want to help everyday people find inspiration and confidence to get out there and try something new. We can make adventure a priority.Tweet
Thanks for dropping by! My name’s Thomas and I love a good adventure. That’s what Out and Across is all about. I’ve decided to share my stories and experiences to help you have life-changing adventures of your own.
I’m one of the lucky ones to have grown up in Nova Scotia. I’d spend hours searching for hidden treasures on the East Coast of Canada. As I grew older, the ocean nurtured my sense of wonder. That’s only deepened with time.
I’ve come to greatly appreciate Canada’s unique outdoor playground. Hiking, biking, paddling, and camping are some of my go-tos. When the snow arrives, I dabble in cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Like many others, I’m trying to spend more of my life outside.
I love Canada. But I’ve always been keen to branch out and see the world. You can imagine my excitement while boarding that first plane over a decade ago. Travelling to Kenya changed my life. Long story short: I went on to finish my master’s in international development, started a career in the global nonprofit sector, and my curiosity for the world grew. I suppose that’s called wanderlust?
Today I live in the Calgary next to the world-renowned Rocky Mountains. Out and Across was born from my desire to share stories and experiences with friends and family. As this project continues to take shape, I enjoy making new friends who share my enthusiasm for new experiences. I’m so thankful for my wide community (like… really grateful!).
I want to help everyday people find inspiration and confidence to get out there; to learn and experience more of the world and, in doing so, connect with nature, one another, and ourselves. It’s easy to become all-consumed by the busyness of life. But we find ourselves in the wilderness and the unknown.
