The World Before Me is a modern-day round the world trip, set to the words of a 19th century poet.
“Afoot and light-hearted I take to the open road, healthy, free, the world before me.” 160 years have passed since Walt Whitman penned this text, but feelings about travel remain the same. We’re still inspired by the open road and still excited by discovering the unknown.
In the fall of 2015, while preparing for a trip that would take me literally around the world, I couldn’t shake the desire to share the experience of travel, which for me is a very personal one. This film is the culmination of that desire. I carried my camera for 5 months through 15 countries. The endless metropolis of Tokyo, tiny islands of The Philippines, busy streets of India, the Swiss Alps and the Scottish Highlands. They’re all right here, for you, in 6 minutes.

From the souks and craftsmen of Marrakesh and Fes to the dunes of Merzouga and continuing on high into the Atlas mountains, see Morocco like you’ve never seen it before.
‘MOROCCO’ takes you on a journey beyond the obvious and into the heart and soul of this beautiful country.
The film was shot over the course of a month.
