If you’ve stumbled upon this page, you were probably lost intrigued or hopefully, inspired. Since online introductions are ever so cheesy, I’ll start us off.

Hi, I’m Paul.

Or if you prefer: Bonjour, je m’appelle Paul. hallo, ich bin Paul. Hola, me llamo Pablo. Здравствуйте, Меня зовут павел.

A little about myself? Well, I was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. Growing up, I developed a passionate love for travel. The older I became, the more I yearned to experience places BEYOND UTAH.

Starting in 8th grade, I began taking trips (sans my family) across the continental US. In September of 2014, I left everything I knew and moved to Moscow, Russia to teach English for 4 months. During those 100 days in Moscow, living abroad went from yearned day dream to my everyday experiences. In August of 2015, I set off for Paris, France where I am working as an “au pair” (nanny) for a year. I’d describe myself as adventurous, clever, brave, optimistic, compassionate and I honestly do try my best to stay humble. Beyond Utah is the virtual chronicles of my travels from country #1 to country #21 (country count below). Tag along on any of my platforms and feel free to say hello! I’m not your typical traveler, and in sharing my tips and tricks, I hope to inspire a little more wanderlust in each of you.
