Following Bruce (And My Dreams)

I'm following Bruce Springsteen around the South this Spring. It's not just a fun time. It's also about:

1. following my dreams
2. creating photos and writing pieces
3. making a beautiful website
4. inspiring others to follow their dreams, too

I've started my website ( (and also This site goes well beyond the 3 week Bruce Adventure. But it's all starting with that. Following Bruce is the kickoff for the rest of my life.

My plans include getting a GoPro camera and video blogging, as well as regular written blog posts and photo galleries. I'm going to interview people I meet on the road and at/around shows. I'm finding places to stay through airbnb and word of mouth (know anyone with space for me in Nashville, Charlotte, Raleigh, Atlanta, New Orleans or Houston?). I'm buying tickets as I go. Hoping to get on the floor/GA for every show.

I am planning to work as much as I can for my job while on the road. I've saved a fair amount of money to pay for the trip, but tickets and the GoPro are pretty expensive! I thought I'd open up a GoFundMe and let others help support me if inspired. I'm excited to offer all kinds of special perks, like postcards from every city and print photos from my trip.

Please take a look at the "rewards levels" and help out if you can. Yay for everyone who donates. You will ALL get postcards from the road and my unending ginormous gratitude.
