My name is Justin Marshall. Not the Kiwi rugby player, and not the British artist. I am Justin D. Marshall. I currently live in Santa Barbara, California, grew up and went to high school in Santa Cruz, California, and graduated with a degree in English Literature from UCSB. This site is dedicated to sharing my passion for writing, travel, the outdoors, cycling, some lucky point and shoot photography, and my desire to do some cool stuff before I croak.


I'm currently working in an office by day, cycling and enjoying California in my time off, attempting to find a publisher for my book, and working on other writing projects when I can. After I get my book published I'll be moving on to my next adventure, whether professional, creative, educational or otherwise. Ideally it will be a combination of all of these.

The road constantly beckons, along with dreams of another long-term adventure and the incomparable sense of freedom and adventure associated with it. In the mean time I love life in California and am blessed to live in a state so rich and diverse in both natural and cultural wonders. California has enough world class destinations to keep most people happy, with the likes of San Francisco, Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, Mammoth Lakes, Santa Barbara, Santa Cruz, and Sequoia National Park to name a few of my favorites. By any measure my life in California is great, but that doesn't mean I can't try to make it more interesting, more challenging and more rewarding.
