I don’t really like to talk or type in third-person so I’ll tell you about myself as if we were in front of each other, sharing a cup of coffee with the Guadeloupe Mountains in the horizon.
Life is amazing. That’s usually what I’m thinking about when I meet a new person, see a beautiful sight, or experience a new thing.
I am a young sojourner of the world who travels for no other reason than for the love of it. Prior to me converting to a full time Actor by craft and Sojourner by nature I was apart of a fortune 500 company and one of the largest financial corporations in the world. Yes, I defined myself by my occupation as I had nothing else to define myself.
Just because I was apart of this major financial corporation (which I am choosing to omit because saying their name is tantamount to saying Voldemort) didn’t mean I was rich or wealthy by any means. Yes, I was on my way to becoming financially rich if I stayed on my path, but I was definitely not there.
Now I knew that there were two things that I absolutely loved: acting and traveling/exploring. The only issue was (like most people) I didn’t do enough traveling. How could I really love traveling if I never committed myself fully to it? The same goes for acting (but that’s another story in itself. If you want to know how I started acting full time or just to simply chat, you can contact me via Twitter at @anthonypaulrich). To make an extremely long and interesting story (as are all of my stories) short, I took a “leap of faith” and sold everything I owned, bought a cash car, quit my job and became what I always wanted to be: a full time actor and traveller of the world.
I have never looked back and the only regret I have was that I did not do this earlier.
To give you a brief run down of what I’ve done prior to working in the financial industry I managed restaurants, started three companies, there was a brief time in real estate, mortgages, and special forces in the Navy. If you want more details in…well, pretty much anything, you can contact me via Twitter (as this is the best way to contact me as I stay mobile) at @anthonypaulrich
