Goseong Guy (Nate) first came to Goseong in March of 2018. He has mostly been living there ever since.

We even took our wedding photos here in Goseong! I have an article about Sangjogam Park in my blog where these were taken.

I play drums and guitar and enjoy metal detecting, fishing, hiking, camping, and other outdoor stuff.

Travel was a huge part of my life before starting a family and COVID, though I don’t love it any less. I previously worked in China and Mexico. Photography pairs nicely with travel, and while I don’t have any special gear, I have been getting more into it. For a time I was a journalist for the town’s official social media blog.

I love to share travel experiences and talk about things that are timeless.
