Backstory and Beyond

In the summer of 1989, I did the classic “Go West, young man” cross-country drive, moving to California. My life was transformed.

In 2019, living back East and long overdue for an adventure, I took off with my South African son on a road trip through America. Two months. 10,000 miles. East to west and back again. When it was over, I knew that life, for me, would never be the same.

The mantra for my life going forward is…

Explore. Discover. Share. Enlighten. Empower. Inspire. 

My vision to manifest that life is on my Beck’s Next Act website.
