OCTOBER 1, 2013
After four years of incredible experiences, the time has come to bring the Racing Winds adventure to an end.
I founded RWM when I was 14 years old, just an eighth-grader with a vision, a dream, and unbounded aspirations. I certainly never expected to have the experiences that I have had, nor did I expect the success that I enjoyed. I knew that, eventually, things would stop somewhere, but that doesn’t make this any easier.
In August, I started my college career at Fordham University in New York City, so it feels like a natural time to transition to the next chapter. The next chapter has already begun, though, as I join the team at SmartFlyer, a luxury travel agency in Manhattan. I am continuing to contribute to the aviation community over at Airchive.com, and am always pursuing freelance work.
All of our travel and sailing coverage, news, and blogs are currently archived at The Racing Winds Blog, and will remain there for the foreseeable future. I feel incredibly lucky to have reached thousands of readers from 140 countries and territories through this blog. So, readers, thank you.
I am so grateful to have had the support of the people and companies that I’ve worked with over the past four years, both in the travel and sailing industries. But I would not be where I am today without the support of the Volvo Ocean Race, for they provided the first opportunity for me to prove myself in the media world in 2009.
In the coming weeks, this website will be replaced by my personal portfolio, a comprehensive collection of all my past, present, and upcoming work. You can find me at @racingwinds on Twitter and Instagram, or send me an email.
