The Mission

It's really pretty simple. Travel the world, living my best damn life, and find the best F@%&ING doughnuts along the way.  PERIOD!

As the name implies, PBD is all about the dough! The whole concept of Powered By Doughnuts was to captivate the not just the food but the culture that’s been created by the massive wave of food enthusiasts. Kinda like the saying goes, “it’s not about where you’re going but how you get there”. It’s all about the adventure!  As crazy as it sounds, doughnuts really helped me get a better grasp on life. Traveling from city to city, and meeting people from all different backgrounds and experiencing the different cultures has been the biggest eye opener. This whole adventure’s created an unrelenting craving inside me to seek out so much more from life through people, places, and well…doughnuts! I’ve realized through my travels and interactions with people that everyone is on the same exact mission in their own unique way.  Powered by Doughnuts was started to document not only all the amazing food but to tell the story of all the incredible people and places that the adventure led me to.  It's about sharing experiences and finding a way to connect with people.  I've found that doughnuts are one of the most universal languages that everyone speaks.  It's amazing what happens when you get a couple of strangers sitting around a box of doughnuts.


If I’m an advocate for anything, it’s to move. As far as you can, as much as you can. Across the ocean, or simply across the river. Walk in someone else’s shoes or at least eat their food. It’s a plus for everybody.”
