Leaving the U.S to live abroad and pursue a fulfilling life has been nothing short of the biggest step I've taken in my life. To leave the comfort of San Diego, my friends & family, and a secure everyday life was not an easy decision; it was a necessary one. Among all of the risk and uncertainty, I wouldn't change it for the world. Moving to Vietnam and diving headfirst into another culture, and part of the globe without a concrete plan, has been the most exciting and gratifying experience one could ask for.
And I can't wait to share this through MESIC Curators & Collectors.
Putting MESIC Curators & Collectors on pause for the entirety of the past 12 months, was also something that didn't come easy. I launched the brand in September 2016 with the help of many creative collaborators, and enjoyed a warmer reception than we could have expected. Even after all of this time I still can't thank these initial supporters and collaborators enough for getting the brand launched in such a positive direction. Without their belief in the brand vision, MESIC Curators & Collectors wouldn't have gotten off the starting blocks as successfully as it did. Keeping this in mind when I pulled the trigger to move across the globe to Southeast Asia, I knew deep down that it would only be a matter of time before things settled and I found an awesome new direction for the brand.
This is where the brand is today: refocused with clarity and inspiration from my travels and adventures, and a complete new outlook on life...I couldn't be happier about this.
While MESIC will still be collaborating with fellow creatives and travelers from time to time, the Brand will now be centered more directly around my experiences abroad, and have a more personal feel behind the vision and content.
I'm looking forward to your feedback and response to this new chapter in the Brand's life! Be sure to keep up with the adventure on instagram, and take a look at the new prints and apparel and let me know what you think!
Thanks again for all the interest and continued support!
