MEET UNSETTLER RYAN NICHOLS
What do you do for work?
I own a sustainably focused building and design company
What are you most passionate about?
Simply being alive. When I am my best self I love getting out of bed every day to discover something new. Traveling makes that easy, so when I'm not able to travel the goal is to always be searching for something new and interesting. I love the feeling of having all my senses firing and feeling engaged.
Reason for joining Unsettled?
I wanted to be surrounded by unfamiliar people in an unfamiliar place to see what may be learned from that experience. I'm enjoying learning from open conversations with people from significantly different cultural, educational and professional backgrounds. I chose Marrakech, Morocco because I have not spent any significant time in an area with old Islamic architecture and am soaking up new design inspiration. Outside of strictly professional motives, I need some time to relax, assess where I am, and set new goals.
What does living Unsettled mean to you?
It means taking advantage of an opportunity to learn from new people and new places. New environments help spark disruptive and creative thinking, and being in the presence of confident and motivated individuals all sharing their energy is empowering.
