14,411 feet of beauty. This mountain always finds a way to take my breathe away.

If you haven't already, I hope someday you get the chance to stand under a sky full of stars... to look up, contemplate the size of the universe, and be humbled by it.
I know, at least for me, being under a night sky like this has a funny way of making the individual problems and frustrations of my life look just a little less important... of shifting my perspective to see the bigger picture... realizing life is so much more than just a single obstacle I may be facing.

Summer in Washington 😊

I’ve been traveling pretty consistently for the past few years. In fact, I looked at my calendar, and the last time I was home for more than 2 consecutive months was June/July of 2016. It has certainly been a blast traveling all over and I plan to keep traveling but I’ve made it a priority to stick around Seattle this summer and reconnect with the place where I first really fell in love with the wilderness and mountains. So expect to see lots more Washington photos in the coming weeks 😊🌲🏔️

Spending the night in this lookout felt more like a dream than reality. -

I’ve made it a tradition to hike up a mountain for my birthday each year and take a photo with the Indonesian flag (I was born in Indonesia). So this year, I headed up a mountain in the Cascades with @calebsprong (thanks for grabbing this photo of me). It was such a perfect spot to ring in year 28 of this crazy human experience we call life.
As I sat up there among the mountain peaks I couldn’t help but think about the past year of life and be thankful for the experiences I’ve had and the people I’ve shared them with. Life is so much about who you choose to spend it with… that decision makes all the difference.
Here’s to deeper relationships, crazier adventures, and making this year the best year yet! 😊


I was looking through waterfall photos, like I obviously do every day 😄 and came across this one from Plitvice Lakes in 2014. I haven’t been back since that trip but I think of returning to this boardwalk often. Anyone else want to visit this spot? 🙋‍♂️

One of my favorite lakes in Washington 😊

To the place that’s been home to some of my favorite adventures, turned strangers into some of my best friends, and inspired us all to be a little more adventurous. #HappyCanadaDay 🇨🇦

When other plans fell through that day, we made a last minute decision to summit this peak. It turned out to be one of my favorite hikes I’ve done in Washington and reminded me to make the most of things even when they don’t go according to plan.
