Hello!

The Swell is a space for the experiences, sounds, and ideas that lift my spirit, refresh my mojo, and bring forth the best in me. I hope you'll find inspiration and delight here.

A throwback post because the feature shot is stunning and reminds me of last summer’s adventure in Baja, Mexico, delivering water filters with Pure Drift to the small community of Nativos, on the way to a surf break. Shoutout to epic photographer Charlie Beck.

For details of the trip, the water filters, and the npo, visit Pure Drift’s site and the blog post specific to this visit. Suffice to say: We camped on a clifftop with an awesome ocean view, enjoyed the outdoors and the lack of plumbing and electricity, surfed, made fire, and slept under the stars. We returned to California tired and dirty, but feeling grateful to the locals the opportunity to be a part of something bigger than ourselves.
