Last month, I finally made it over to India to see the Taj Mahal. Where is one place you want to visit ?!
Damn this wonder of the world got me going all Ninja! Can you guys spot anything unusual in the photo? #incredibleindia
Unlike a drop of water which loses its identity when it joins the ocean, man does not lose his being in the society in which he lives. Man's life is independent. He is born not for the development of the society alone, but for the development of his self. 📷: @evanpaterakis

Had a beautiful 10 days in Egypt. As you can see, a genuine smile has found its way back on my face. It’s been a solid 2 years of faking them to find it again. To those of you that helped support me in the process, thank you. Those that didn’t, thank you. It’s nice to feel happy again. Thanx for putting up with my sh!t. 📷: @projectwahba
What up everyone !! Hope your day is amazing !!!
Thinking outside the box my whole life has served me well. Shout out to all the people with creative ideas that others think are crazy or stupid. Be you.

I Sphinx you’re cool.
Get out there and try something new today.
The key to growth is acknowledging your fear of the unknown and jumping in anyway.
We call him Egypt, because everywhere he goes he leaves a pyramid.
Some drone clips I got last month with my @djiglobal Mavic 2 Zoom. If you watch a lot of my videos, you’ll notice keyframing slight zooms...what’s been so fun and inspiring is being able to zoom in camera while flying the drone. Anyways, let me know what you think of the shots. Run it ✌🏼
I recently sat down with Jordan Belfort @wolfofwallst and got to talk about how I push past fear. Check out the full podcast, link in bio.
I’d go to the ends of the earth for You. 😘
Water is everywhere on our planet. It's the reason we have organic life. It shapes our mountains, carves our oceans, and drives our weather. | @athina_luxury_suites thanx for the good times.
At sea, I learned how little a person needs, not how much.
A year and a half ago, I had ACL surgery and my doctor said no skiing over the summer...so I rehabbed my knee like crazy and ended up skiing but decided not to barefoot...this summer I found myself getting to barefoot again. This is one of the greatest feelings I have ever felt, getting to ski on top of the water with my bare feet. #RunIt #LakeLife
easily one of my favorite captures in quite some time #LakeLife
Stepping out of my comfort zone is something I enjoy doing, as it teaches me what I am capable of. The Air Force SERE Specialists taught me a range of skills from mental endurance to physical strength, like they do all their students. It’s a great career path for anyone who enjoys the outdoors and wants to provide vital support to Special Ops missions. Getting to learn things like building shelter, making a fire, and navigational skills brought me back to a place of center.

Air Force SERE Specialists. This opportunity allowed me to learn about some of the people who defend and serve our country. And in the process, I learned a lot about myself as I was challenged both mentally and physically with a set of challenges ranging from building shelters to sleep in while in the woods, to collecting the proper materials to build a fire, to reading a map using a compass for my navigational skills. Air Force Survival, Evasion, Resistance, Escape (SERE ) Specialists train military personnel at-risk of isolation (such as Special Ops Airmen and aircrew ) how to survive in the most hostile and remote locations if a mission doesn't go as planned and return with honor.

It’s never been about doing crazy things. It’s simply been about beating fear. Cliff jumping was one of those things my brother Ryan got me into. There’s an old tale told by him that he jumped a cliff named “cape fear” clocking in at 100ft. I never saw it but I witnessed him ramp a bike in our front yard 69.34 inches so I know it must be true. Anyways, I always viewed him as FEARless. When I got older and did my first cliff jump I understood that you can step past your fear. And those few seconds where your feet are off the ground, and everything is silenced except the rush of life filling up every inch of your body.
This is me looking across the island at a lighthouse, thinking of memories i made there, last time I came with friends. | 📷: @evanpaterakis
It’s a vibe alright. 🎥: @evanpaterakis
I just wanna stay in sun where I find...pieces of peace in the sun’s peace of mind...
I’ve always been someone who stands for facing fears and taking risks but I have learned you must know when to draw the line. We took a boat out to this little island off the coast of Lithi, Greece. I quickly found the only spot that could be a potential cliff jump. I scaled down the cliff and got into the ocean to check the depth, something one must do before any unknown cliff jump. I found that the jump was doable but I would have to thread the needle in order to make it. I got back to the top and didn’t have a path to get a running start to clear the shallow rock ledge I needed too in order to thread the needle so I said I wasn’t going to jump. I considered this a win and a big step in who I consider myself to be.
