The 'Crew' of the Good Vibe Collective is made up of founders, supporters, and other volunteers. Are you interested in getting more involved? We are always looking for new, diverse perspectives from within the nomadic community.
Please reach out!
Chris has been living a nomadic life for more than a decade and is a cofounder of the Collective. He's also a photographer, creative director, and producer, and he handles most of the Collective's communications and helps produce events.
When he's not crafting language or taking photographs, you'll find him hidden away on Forest Service roads, jumping in wild hot springs, and spending time with his furry co-pilot, Tulsi.
He is also the creator of 'In Here, Out There: Stories from the Road', a podcast filled with stories and sounds from his travels.
Matt has been living, working, and playing full time in his custom home on wheels since August of 2017 and is a cofounder of the Collective. He also works as a videographer and aerial drone operator.
It is Matt's passion to develop opportunities for connection and growth within the nomadic community while also telling our story to the outside world. He's known in the Collective as 'Captain Good Vibes' because it was his vision of leading nomads on caravans that started the Collective.
Matt supports the Collective as MC and host for many of our events as well and is the creator of Good Vibe LiVE, a live talk show for the nomadic community.

Laurén began traveling in her van full-time back in October of 2018 and has been coast to coast and back again with her lil pup, Penny.
With a background in managing international exchange programs for the U.S. State Department, Laurén uses her experiences and skills to support the Collective with logistics and organizational operations and helps produce events.
She now spends some of her time on the road and some of her time at her tiny house and flower farm.

Sam is an outdoor enthusiast and mental health advocate who has been living and traveling full time in her self-converted Sprinter van since 2018. Sam is native to Portland, Oregon and still can’t be made to choose between the ocean or the mountains!
Sam supports the Collective by hosting and producing Mental Health events for nomads. When she's not advocating, she spends her days traveling North America with her feline companion, Cashew, seeking out secluded hot springs, volunteer opportunities, and community on the road.
You can find Sam on instagram @SamVanZam
