Welcome to Novatourist

Novaturient | Seeking powerful change in one’s life, behavior, or situation. The feeling that pushes you to travel.


My name is Steven, and I am the Novatourist. The name is a nod to the word – Novaturient – that not only puts more emphasis on adventure, but gives a new title to those seeking it. Whether it’s wanting a change in your day, or in your life, this website will help you find motivation, inspiration, and creativity for it. From moving verses for the soul, to thoughtful pieces for the mind, and (of course) intrepid trouvailles that encourage you to pursue your own adventures with meraki. Because we all have goals and dreams, as we seek them out on our respective journeys. And while we are chasing the feeling that pushes us, just know you have a friend here who can relate with you. Thank you for taking the time to venture through this site, and that the things you find help you with what you’re seeking. So come along for the adventure!

So what are the things offered here?


Originally created to document my experience in grad school, so others can learn from it, Novatourist has grown to incorporate other topics; with the focus going towards travel. From road trips on weekends, to weeks of travel out of the state & country, you’ll be there with me for the ride as we seek to uncover the world’s hidden gems! It is the goal that one day this can turn into it’s own travel show, but we have much catching up to do filling up the passport before we get to that point. While voyages are discussed here, this site also explores and offers other areas including:

  • Dating & relationship tips
  • Poetry & short stories
  • Food for thought topics
  • Life updates. . .

Has there been a project or a situation that has really held you back? Don’t worry, we’ve all been there and I would like to help you if I can. I mostly focus on creative projects, with my words and my voice, as well as interpersonal dynamics. To learn more about it, check out the Freelance page!

Let’s create something together.
