"I merely wanted to start to living my life once again." Sober Voyager


Some beautiful
paths can't be discovered without getting lost.

Hey friends, I'm Jesse, the Sober Voyager, founder of A.D.R & The Mocktail Project.  At the young age of 25, I received my second chance at my life. Today, you may see me cruising down the highway, in the voyager van, if you do, roll down your window and give me a wave! 
It's now my life's mission to inspire other individuals that recovery is possible, in all forms. I believe I do this best through my company, A.D.R, and a grass routes movement I started, called THE MOCKTAIL PROJECT, benefiting the S.V. Foundation.



Life of the Sober Voyager is my perfectly imperfect recovery story. On April 16th, 2017 coinciding with three years of recovery, I decided to hit the road, to live my life in recovery, sharing my journey along the way. I made a personal goal to travel to each state, trying a different bucket-list item in each state that I never thought was possible without a drink in my hand, hence the "SOBER VOYAGER."  


What a year 2017 was, updating my 2018 journey soon!
