I am a nomad. I slept in my tent for forty straight nights in New Zealand. I captained a boat up the Orinoco Delta in Venezuela. I came face to face with a bushmaster a day’s walk from civilization on the north coast of Trinidad. I climbed a mountain in the Himalayas. I looked south towards Antarctica from the southernmost tip of South America. I stuck my hand in the Arctic Ocean. I lived on a glacier in Alaska for a month. I panned for gold in French Guiana. I ran down a mountain in a hailstorm in the Black Hills of South Dakota. I kayaked a tributary of the Amazon that was so wide I couldn’t see the far shore. I slept under the Milky Way in the Utah desert. I played bamboo flute on the banks of the Ganges. I played drums in the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul. I went scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef. I had an island in Fiji to myself one night. I walked four days to the border of Guyana. I watched the sun set over the Guatemalan rainforest from the top of a 1,200 year old Mayan ruin. I walked hours off trail into the Australian rainforest in the middle of the night and found my way back by following a string I had laid on the way in. I had a snowball fight on top of Hawaii’s highest mountain on the summer solstice. I navigated out of the Kau Desert in the middle of the night using the North Star to guide me. I opened a coconut with my bare hands on a beach in Papua New Guinea (Kin the Caveman taught me how). I woke at dawn every other day for a month to feed baby peregrine falcons above a cliff 700 feet above the ocean in California. I bushwacked through devil’s club in the North Cascades. I learned Spanish slang in the cab of an 18-wheeler rolling through the Patagonian night. I hitchhiked in Colombia. I rode in a hot air balloon over the Serengeti at sunrise. I watched an opera in a park in Rome. I hiked to a frozen waterfall in Croatia. I skied the Olympic ski slopes above Sarajevo. I climbed 4,000 ft to see an endangered bird on top of Mt. Gower, and then I descended and snorkeled the world’s most southerly coral reef. I walked into a Panamanian swamp in the middle of the night to photograph red-webbed gladiator frogs. I got lost in a whiteout in the Andes and survived the night by starting a cow-dung fire to stay warm. I broke camp in two minutes when I saw hundreds of thousands of ants coming towards my tent in Brazil. I learned the Tibetan alphabet and held a conversation in Mandarin. I rappelled into a crevasse. I caught a piranha and ate it. I tracked howler monkeys through the rainforest in Mexico. I stared into a crater of boiling lava atop a volcano in Chile. I soaked in a hot spring underneath Bolivia’s highest mountain. I watched a condor soar above Colca Canyon in Peru. I got healed by a shaman in Thailand. I canoed past bull sharks in Costa Rica. I radio tracked burrowing toads in South Korea. I woke up in Ghana, walked across the river to Ivory Coast, then came back and had a nice Nigerian-style breakfast.

"Had the immense pleasure of listening to you live on a languid Saturday morning a couple of weeks back at Rangoli restaurant in South Riding, VA. Your soulful and melodious notes still reverberate deep within me even today. Your CD too lifts my spirits and enchants me into sheer oblivion! Wish to repeat the whole experience some day soon." -- Vijay Sampat
