Project Reconnect is designed to reconnect to the primal, tribal, purpose-driven and nature-connected life that many of our ancestors exceptionally lived.
Most of us have a thirst to live a life of purpose and meaning, and to understand what we are capable of. There’s only one way to honestly explore potential; To run to the edges of one’s capacities; to explore.
Paddling from Catalina Island to Redondo Beach, is my attempt to reconnect.
For 30 years, I’ve had a front-seat view of Catalina Island (about 25-30 miles off the California Coast), and often thought about the Native Americans who crossed that stretch of the Pacific Ocean. They did so without any modern technology, to gather survival based resources to bring back to their family members on the island.
Their vehicle, hand-made canoes. And in the most beautifully primal and ancient way, relied on nothing more than their head, feet and hands to navigate the multi-hour channel crossing.
Quite literally, a personal sacrifice, to do something for the greater good of others.
During that time, the ocean was in harmony with humans – and humans in harmony with the ocean. Fast forward hundreds of years, and our ocean is in peril.
Over 5 trillion pieces of plastic currently litter the ocean.
I am incredibly passionate about helping The Ocean Cleanup tackle this problem. From now until the end of 2018, I'll be raising money for The Ocean Cleanup.

I’ll be partaking in the paddle on Thursday, September 27 but this is just the beginning of raising awareness for an amazing cause and I would really appreciate your support!
For every dollar raised Compete to Create will match the donation up to $25,000.
