After working as an engineer for 5 years, an ayahuasca experience in Peru changed the trajectory of my life. I quit my job and left the US on an open-ended trip with no itinerary. I spent the next 15 months backpacking and living in India and Southeast Asia while hosting Walking the Earth Podcast (wtepodcast.com), which documents my personal experiences on the road as well as conversations with a diverse array of fellow travelers.
Since settling back in the US, I have been producing events and online content focused on honest conversations about psychedelics, drugs, and their broader social context. I founded Psychedelic Seminars (psychsems.com), a Baltimore-based speaker series and discussion group. Our guest speakers have experience ranging from therapeutic research at Johns Hopkins University to harm reduction work with DanceSafe. I am also project manager for Psymposia (psymposia.com), a production company, online magazine, and growing network of fun and innovative people working to create a positive change in how we learn, perceive, and interact with plants, psychedelics, and psychoactives.
