Hi, I’m Will. I’m a writer, photographer, and itinerant mystic on a globe-circling adventure.

I launched The Lost Pilgrim after my friends encouraged me to take my philosophical, political, and spiritual writings off social media and into a more open format.

After I left the USA in March 2016, the site has since evolved to document my journey and personal growth while traveling. I illustrate these experiences with my own photography.

Through pictures and words I hope to share with you how I see the world, and why I see it the way I do. For those who can’t travel, I want to bring home my sense of the planet’s extraordinary bigness and smallness, balancing the novelty and universality that constitute an important aspect of an adventure like this.

I anticipate this site will continue to develop with me. I’d like it to flow in unexpected directions with the currents of my life, and catch winds of inspiration. Between these I intend to sail a creative course.

Welcome aboard for the ride.
