This is Me: Why I go to Burning Man

It’s my third year going to Burning Man. I’m not a veteran but obviously there is a reason I keep going back. It’s not the cheapest of experiences, it takes a good chunk of time to organize and be offline and away, and the conditions are why?

I’ve been thinking a lot about this lately since we are just a few days away from landing on the playa. There has been many conversation about what it’s like and of course why I go so I thought I would share in today’s video.

If I were to answer with one word I would say FREEDOM. Freedom from what and why? Well, for that you’ll have to watch the video, but before I go there are many reasons that make Burning Man a special place. Many of which I don’t mention in the video. If you’re curious then definitely check out the 10 Principles of Burning Man to understand why.
