Author Bio: Jonathan Look

Jonathan Look on a Beach in CambodiaIn 2011 Jonathan Look decided change his life, retire early and pursue adventures instead of comfort and possessions. To accomplish this he sold all of his possessions and headed out. His goal is to spend ten years discovering new places, meeting new people and taking the time to learn about them, their values and their place on this tiny planet.

Jonathan believes that says a person is the sum of their experiences and rejects the fraud of modern consumerism that makes people into slaves of their consumption. He doesn’t intend to be modern day ascetic, just more mindful of his place in the world and to make decisions according to that new standard. His motto is, “Why sip life from a straw when you can drink it from a fire hose?” After leaving the United State he has so far based in Mexico, Cambodia and Thailand with plans to move again soon.
