Cowboy boots, snakeskin tights, and a leather jacket… shirt optional.

Standout Memory

Experiencing my first night bike ride on the playa. Nighttime is an interactive psychedelic circus with the best soundtrack you’ve ever heard. I couldn’t stop laughing — and howling like a wolf.

Nugget of Wisdom

Burning Man renewed my faith in humanity. It showed me a sense of purpose, with humans getting back to our roots through rituals and the absence of technology. I learned that there doesn’t have to be a rhyme or reason for everything; it’s beautiful to see people just being creative for creativity’s sake.
