I quit the rat race to redesign my life.

I am Thomas Smallwood; entrepreneur, mountain enthusiast and, now, blogger!

In late 2016 I quit the rat race and decided that 2017 would be the year in which I redesigned my life. I wanted to ensure it was more satisfying, interesting and adventurous, from both a personal and a professional perspective. I didn’t really know what I was doing or how I would accomplish this large and rather vague goal but I knew that one thing I certainly wanted was to spend more time in the outdoors, a passion that I had neglected in the last few years. My blog follows my journey in redesigning my life and reconnecting with mountains and wild places.
