Hi, I’m Garrett Kincaid.
On May 25, 2022, I graduated from college with a degree in quantitative finance. A week later, I landed in Reykjavik to start a 3-month backpacking in Iceland. There, I connected with Nature and myself.
That adventure affirmed how I already saw life: Every moment bursts with beauty and opportunity.
Now, I’m just trying to not forget that. I returned from Iceland to start my career — not as a banker, trader, or consultant but as a writer.
When I write, I remember. I write so that I don’t lose sight of what matters. I write to explore my inner world and connect with others — to connect with you. So, thank you for being here.
Speak your latent conviction . . . Else tomorrow a stranger will say with masterly good sense precisely what we have thought and felt all the time, and we shall be forced to take with shame our own opinion from another.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Self-Reliance”
