About

Hi. I'm Nate. I'm a Midwest-suburban-white kid who is trying to figure things out. Life is hard, and it doesn't make it any easier now that the world is so complicated. I'm a millennial. You know, the generation that drinks craft beer, vapes, eats avocado toast, and knows tech things. I was a good kid that got good grades, eventually a degree, and a good job. I did what was expected of me and it granted me a golden ticket to the ultimate goal of modern society: a well-paying job in the real world. One problem though: that was all I had planned. Now what? The adult-sized paycheck was incredible, but with the increase in cash came many ways to spend. All of a sudden I had to dress better, upgrade the apartment, grab a new car, drink better booze, take fancier vacations, and show my friends and family how successful I'd become. I lived that life for a while until I realized that these life "upgrades" were not truly upgrades. The paycheck coming in was going out just as fast, and since I had nothing planned for this stage of my life, the cycle continued paycheck after paycheck. I'm sure this sounds familiar.


It was a frustrating time for me as it is for most. I felt stuck, but it was in one of those moments of stuck that I asked myself a question: why do I need to live this way? I didn't have a good answer. I took a good hard look around me and realized that something had to change. It was time to get to work. I was a product design engineer by trade and began tackling the problem piece by piece. The results? After two and a half years of developing, designing, stashing money, and implementing new tactics into my lifestyle, I had set into motion a plan to follow my dreams of long term travel. In the end, I traveled for 2 years, to 5 continents, 44 countries, 150+ cities, with my now wife, and lived out of a small backpack for the majority of the trip. I was the happiest I had ever been in my whole life. It opened my world to countless people, cultures, and ways to live.


It made me realize something. There are so many different ways to live the one life we all have. What we see and do here in America is far from the only option available. After returning home, my image of our culture expanded. I began to see things I never noticed before. I began to see the inter-workings of our culture, especially millennial culture, now that I had experienced many cultures. The way I describe it is that it felt like changing from a regular photo to a 360° photo. To be honest, it made me laugh. We do some pretty ridiculous things here in America that deserve to be laughed at. That's when the Millennial Moose™ comic was born.



Why a moose? Well, I always felt a bit out of place. I'm tall, and while growing up, I tripped over my own feet constantly. That is also exactly how I mentally felt once I left school. It seemed as if my entire life was a continuous scene of tripping and stumbling while barely catching myself before the next trip. My wife, who had similar symptoms, had a wonderful saying for people like us, "You look like a moose on roller skates." I reflected on that for a long time. Moose seem like big clumsy creatures that meander around bumping into every rock and tree with those giant antlers. That also made me laugh, and Milli the moose was born.



Enter Milli the moose. A reincarnation of my younger, stumblin', bumblin' self who's still trying to figure out this crazy world we live in. In short, the Millennial Moose™ cartoon is a collection of my thoughts on the world from a post-travel, millennial perspective. It is a reflection of my past as well as a dissection of millennial life as we head into and interact with the real world. It's a portfolio of the strengths, weaknesses, problems, and potential of the millennial generation with the hope that an idea might spark your own revolution. That is the main point of the comic after all. The real world is brutal, and in many ways, it's stacked against us, but that doesn't mean we can't laugh while we talk about hard topics.
