One Man, One Van, Countless Stories

"My rock bottom was the solid foundation on which I have rebuilt my life" - J.K.R


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

I'm Jesse, and my story is perfectly imperfect. Since I have become sober I strive to live a life true to myself, not the life others expect of me. Steve Jobs once said "our time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life."  On April 16th, 2014, I chose to have my last drink of alcohol. It was in that very moment that fate would have it, I was already becoming the Sober Voyager. "And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years" A.L.


Follow my Journey, the Sober Voyager's Journey.

From music festivals, to art shows, yoga retreats, and sporting events, my goal is to inspire others to choose to live the life that you want to live.
