Meet the Gypsies

Eric Bach

Growing up in between Maine and Florida, I was a mountain man at heart, but perfectly fine with being a beach bum.

My dad was from South Africa and my mom spoke French to us at the dinner table. This combination, along with moving around quite a bit as a kid, instilled the gypsy spirit within.

I met John as a student at Florida State University, where I graduated with a BS in Communication Studies. I had absolutely no idea what I wanted to “be” in life, so I embarked on an adventure that both shaped and defined the man I am today.

Through three and a half years of traveling the world, I felt that I finally had received my real education. I made my way from bartending on the beaches of Greece, hitch hiking my way through Europe, shredding the slopes of British Columbia, livingin a derelict apartment in New Zealand, lifeguarded in Bondi Beach, Australia, and eventually surfed and volunteered my way around Southeast Asia, Nepal and India.

Through these experiences I developed a knack for compassionate adventure. My life had finally developed meaning and I saw the world through the eyes of the people I met. I want to give back to these communities that have affected me, as well as inspire a whole new generation of soon to be, Modern Gypsies.

Compassion is the basis of all morality.
