Carey is a bit of a roamer, but as Tolkien said, "Not all who wander are lost."

He has traveled in 47 countries, much of that well off the beaten path.

He spends about half of each year overseas.

He loves cycling, backpacking, kayaking, skating, and anything outdoors.

His wide-ranging life experience has given him a unique perspective that is sometimes beautiful, sometimes gritty, sometimes insightful . . . always a little moonstruck.
