Howdy!  I'm David - the guy behind ORD to Anywhere!


I'm just a gay dude living in Chicago (airport code - ORD!) where I juggle my career, family, and social life with my absolute passion for exploring the amazing world around us!

With almost two decades of jetsetting under my belt, I decided to launch this website as a way to share the things that make me most passionate about travel - storytelling, the aviation industry, food culture, LGBT issues, and destination photography.  ORD to Anywhere is committed to sharing stories and photos of the people, places, and things that make traveling exciting, noteworthy, delicious, and most of all - possible! 

I should say this now - this is a hobby passion project for me.  I have no illusions that this will be any type of noteworthy endevour.  It will likely be updated infrequently and with little rhyme or reason.  It is what is is.

If you're seeking inspiration, a destination, salivation, or even just a little less perspiration when it comes to planning a trip - I hope you've come to the right place!  I aim to provide all of those things and more.  Please explore the site and find something that gives you that urge to jump on a plane, train, or automobile and see, taste, or feel something entirely brand new. 

Have any questions comments, or feedback?  Feel free to use the button below to email me or use the buttons to the right to connect with me through social media.

Happy travels, bon appetite, and may your flight always have an empty seat next to you!
