Hello. My name is Matthew A. Hausman.  I spent a year and a half travelling around the world, trying to work on different volunteer and service projects.  I am using this website to share stories of my experiences, as well as other thoughts about different aspects of life if anyone is so inclined to read….

Current Update

Wow.  I had not updated this section in a long time.  Sorry.  Well the journey has been over for a while now, and I’ve back in Illinois.  But I have a feeling some future adventures await.  I will be updating this website with new content accordingly. Stay tuned!

About Me

I grew up on a farm outside of the small village of Pesotum, Illinois, USA.  I have been fortunate to live in a few different places (Boulder, Colorado; Cork, Ireland; Los Angeles, California; and Bogotá, Colombia) and have a few different careers (Aerospace Engineer; Teacher; Coach; Farming; Nonprofit Management).  But I’ve always been curious as to what more there is out in the world.

Two years ago, I left my job and spent the next year and a half crossing the globe, working on a variety of volunteer projects and gaining new perspective on the world.

This website is the compilation of that journey as well as future endeavors.
