After driving cross country six years ago, I was hooked on traveling and surfing. I did everything and anything I could to travel since then; volunteered, worked on a farm, camped in a van, etc. I tried the whole “career” thing for a bit after college, but decided two weeks vacation out of the year was absurd. Just as I was about to buy a plane ticket down to Central America to take a shot at living there, my friend asked me if I wanted to work for him at his surf resort in the Mentawai’s in Indonesia. Are you kidding? Not in a million years would I refuse an offer like that. So here I am! On a little spec on a map in the middle of the Indian Ocean, surrounded by some of the most perfect waves in the world. I’m the guest relations director and resort designer, and I have to say it comes pretty damn close to a dream job.
