Alex Frick

Alex Frick's journey from Midwestern roots to globe-trotting nomad is a testament to his adventurous spirit and adaptability. Currently pursuing a Bachelor of Journalism in Sports and Media at the University of Florida, Alex has transformed his passion for exploration into a burgeoning career as a freelance writer and outdoor enthusiast.

After leaving behind a career in automotive retail management, Alex embarked on a life-changing bicycle tour from California to Washington in 2018. This three-month adventure reshaped his perspective on life and work, setting him on a path less traveled. Together with his travel nurse wife and their Instagram-famous hiking tabby, Rafiki, Alex now calls an RV home, embracing a nomadic lifestyle that allows him to experience the world on his own terms.

As a freelance writer since 2021, Alex has honed his craft in outdoor adventure writing, specializing in hiking guides, gear reviews, and captivating storytelling that brings the wilderness to life. His work extends beyond the trails, with contributions to covering a variety of sports including hockey, football, and professional wrestling.

Alex's unique blend of experiences - from RV living to slow hiking and bike touring - gives him a distinctive voice in the travel writing world. He has a knack for uncovering hidden gems and lesser-known destinations, sharing these discoveries through his vivid and engaging prose.

Currently maintaining a perfect 4.0 GPA in his journalism program, Alex is continuously expanding his expertise. He's not just writing about adventures; he's living them, pulling his RV to new locations, embarking on bike tours, and slow-hiking trails with Rafiki in tow.

With an eye towards sustainable tourism and a deep appreciation for the outdoors, Alex Frick represents a new generation of travel writers - ones who don't just pass through, but truly immerse themselves in the journey. Whether he's crafting SEO-optimized content or penning human interest pieces, Alex's writing invites readers to see the world through the eyes of a modern nomad, inspiring them to redefine their own concepts of home and adventure.
