When we go our own way; where do we go and how do we get there?

Each individual internalizes their environments their own way and because of that, we each also react to this internalization differently. What we spit back out into the world can be just about anything.

Sometimes, it’s beautiful.



Pioneering spirits came out of necessity, but somewhere along the way too many have forgotten to test their wagon wheels and become a pioneer. Tonight you will meet a few modern day pioneers choosing to carve out their own path through the muck and mire of today’s world.
