WAYFARING WILD: NORTH + NOMAD IS BORN ON THE ROAD
When I asked the tarot reader about selling all our stuff, leaving New York, and traveling for an undetermined length of time, she drew the Star card. “Not only will this journey be spiritually blessed and eye-opening, it will open up your world, expand your understanding of things, and bring out more centeredness and joy,” she told me. “The cards are asking you to take a moment to trust your creativity and your intuition about what it is you want to do this next year.”
“We have spent a lot of time agonizing and really digging deep to find what it is that we wanted to do. That process can be very painful...It’s challenging, but we believe in our creative vision and we know we are on the right path. We are following our intuition and it’s leading to places that are unexpected."
“Karen Nagy and her fiancé Simon have been traveling in their Honda Element since September 2014. They added a bed platform and stocked it full of camera equipment, because along the way they are producing videos and creating content through their company North + Nomad. Karen has found the road and constant change creatively invigorating."
“There is no one way to find the perfect story. When it came to figuring out a way to create a life as a filmmaker, Simon Biswas chose the sell all of his belongings, hop in a car with his fiancée and fellow producer, Karen Nagy, and hit the road out of Brooklyn with all of their camera and camping gear. They've been exploring new places and making films for clients ever since."
"In September 2014 we left New York City to travel, see new places, and get inspired to make our own work. In the last five months on the road, we’ve slept in a Cobb dome in 9-degree weather at a medicinal herb farm, untangled a buck from a barbed wire fence in West Texas on Christmas Day and explored secret caves in The Land of Enchantment."
