I am Doug Akin, a socially minded and highly adventurous force of energy and love born in New York City. Some have called me an entrepenuer, a marketer, a funny dude, but I'm just being me. Each day, I become closer to myself, as I explore, evolve and remain in a constant state of learning about what life has to offer us.
Over the last two years, I have been on an adventurous ride of a lifetime, starting with a 7-week road trip living out of a van with a few new friends, and then hopping on a one way flight to embark on an 8.5 month whirlwind adventure thru India, Sri Lanka, The Maldives, South East Asia, and Africa to get an up close perspective of the world we live in.
Prior to these worldly adventures, I made my home in NYC where I was a co-creator of Mr Youth, a globally recognized Social Media Agency and the proprietor of Charles, a restaurant in New York's West Village.
I Invite you to join my journey through life; exploring new cultures, challenging traditional thinking, pushing my comfort levels to new highs and collaborating with those interested in building the pathways to a more globally minded future.
