Our Story

Before we met, we pursued the world of adventure in our own ways. We espoused the virtues of journeying; celebrated human potential; and gave thanks for being privileged, as we all are, to be on this planet with so much modern opportunity.


But we were only a fraction of the way there. 


Under the desert stars we found each other and the impossible became natural. Starship Friendship was born and we launched our mission to explore existence, seek adventure, and build community while sailing the globe for as long as we could. 


There are many ways to pursue self actualization; for us, it is side-by-side, on the seas, dancing with the winds, discovering what we can, and spreading the principles that inspired us to embark on this journey in the first place.


Inspired by the Burning Man ethos that brought us together, we are guided by the following principles:

  1. Radical Inclusion: Anyone may be a part of the Starship Friendship community. We welcome and respect you.

  2. Gifting: We give unconditionally; without expectation of a return or exchange.

  3. Self-reliance: We discover, exercise and rely on our inner resources.

  4. Self-expression: We celebrate unleashing, expression and the sharing of unique gifts.

  5. Leave No Trace:  We clean up whenever possible and endeavor to leave places better than we found them.

  6. Communal Effort: We value creativity and collaboration, and strive to produce art that supports human understanding and interaction.

  7. Participation: We open our hearts through deeply personal participation.  

  8. Immediacy: We seek to overcome barriers that stand between us and our inner selves, others, society, and the natural world through immediate experience.

If you believe in these principles and would like to be part our journey, we invite you to follow our video series on YouTube and join our Patreon crew. Friends like you keep us motivated and are the tribe that travels with us wherever we go. 


Live, love & sail 


With gratitude, Kellie & David
