My name is Aron and I run sun and sage ethical vegan clothing. It links to supporting animals here, especially the street animals in Bali making sure that I can give them medication and save them from a poor life. My idea is to bring everything full circle. When somebody buys a product to know firstly how the products made and that they are made in an ethical way and second it also helps to rescue animal in Bali.

I am not all about veganism. I try to live so that everything I do leaves a positive impact on the planet. From my day job to what I do in my spare time. In my day job working with charities to give a little bit back to Bali. Making sure that children have access to education, especially children from poor background. I don’t want them to get stuck on that cycle.

Coming to Bali was the big eye-opener for me where I was able to change how I live a little bit with my work and my spare time to try to become a better person for the animals and the planet.

I visited Bali a year ago just for about a week to travel. When I first come here, it was really nice. Everyone say it’s a paradise and it is a paradise. It’s really nice with lots of nature. I can’t feel this kind of thing in Tokyo or even Seoul. So, after I lost my work due to pandemic I moved to Bali to switch my life environments. Also because Bali is known for its friendliness towards foreigners and the nomads.

Beside enjoying my time and the nature here, I’m also currently writing essay. I want to publish story in book to let people know more about Bali. Through my stories I want to inspire the youth to enjoy more of life. I want to tell them there are lots of different ways to live and there are lots of different places to enjoy. There are plenty of times to learn different cultures. We’re much worth to live and enjoy different things, because it’s only once in a life time.

My name is Tyler Farnham. I grew up in Cocoa beach, Florida. My dad started pushing me into the waves when I was three years old. That’s when I started to have this feeling of adrenaline and endorphins of doing something that was fun and active as a little child. I grew up surfing and of course skateboarding followed after that. When I got a bit older I started to do skydiving and it also became another big passion in my life.

My life was really nice back then. I had this really cool active lifestyle. I began lifeguarding and had a really nice girlfriend but it turned around so quick. I experienced a fatal accident during skydiving. I had five days in a medical induced coma. While I was in the middle of recovering from this horrible accident, the girl that I loved left me. During that time I became dependent on the medication and I found myself very depressed. That’s when I decided to leave the US to feel better about myself again. I have been outside for a while now and I wrote books based on my story.

My name is Jamie, 42 years old and most of my background is in hospitality. I worked in the coffee industry for about 20 years. I was kung fu teacher for a little while. I moved form Australia in 2013 to Dubai. I had been living in Dubai on and off till it just got to the point where I want me and my family to not get trapped inside air conditioning all the time. It was the time for us to move to Bali to have fresh water, a bit of greenery, and some nature.

Me and my wife always thought about setting up a retreat somewhere where people could come like a reset button on their life. We always wanted a place where someone like that could go and just focus on getting healthy and better again. Turns out that Bali is the capital of the world for that, especially in Ubud. That is why we have a business providing for facility to do some retreat in Ubud, Naya Ubud.
