For 4 years I lived and worked at Pyongyang University of Science and Technology in Pyongyang, North Korea. 1 week ago a ban on U.S travel to North Korea was initiated leaving around 100 humanitarians without access to the projects they've devoted their lives to. Diplomacy will start with the influence of foreign feet on the ground. Banning them will prolong this change. I think often of the people I got to know and look forward to the day when we can freely meet again. ||| #pyongyang#dprk
The trek to Twin Crater Lakes ||| What was thought to only be a quick, morning hike unknowingly turned into a 12 mile (19 km) arduous journey into the beautiful Colorado wilderness. We probably should have packed more than water, carrots, and pretzels 🤦🏼♂️🤷🏼♂️😅||| #colorado#optoutside#rooseveltnationalforest
Unplugged ||| I love Colorado because I'm so close to nature and the mountains. Having the ability to unplug and get outside makes this great state so amazing. This weekend included good beer, backcountry delicacies (like campfire hobo dinners and s'mores), and conversations around the fire while two of life's greatest pals kept watch 🐕🐺. Did you do anything special for Labor Day weekend? ||| #getoutside#colorado#rooseveltnationalforest#optoutside
Opening Day! ||| Colorado State University vs. Oregon State. Nothing like watching the home team with an ice cold, locally brewed, @newbelgium beer. Super cool that they crafted a special lager in honor of CSU! ||| #GORAMS#fortcollins#newbelgium
Path Of Totality ||| The whole family headed north to Wyoming to hunker down and watch the total eclipse on Monday. Anyone else traveling somewhere to view it?! 😎🌚||| #wyoming#totaleclipse#wyeclipse
Colorado Summer ||| Being a short drive away from the mountains is something new for me. After living abroad and growing up in Southern California, I've come to appreciate being in close proximity to nature. Few things can top being outside with the ones you love. Glad to share these moments with my wife and our two pups. ||| #colorado#loveland
21st Century Seattle ||| For the past few months, I've felt that my personal creativity has been zapped. Working a full-time job doing social media for a company has left me with little creative drive to passionately pursue the outlet I once loved while living overseas. It's a tug of war. Those who work in creative industries, how do you fuel personal projects outside of your 9 to 5? ||| #seattle#spaceneedle
