ANGELO VALKENBORGH – AMBASSADOR
Bushcrafter | Wild Man | Slovenia
Angelo currently lives in the bush in Slovenia. He shares his stories and projects while on his wild adventures with his faithful adventure dog, Lana. After working in the corporate world for years, Angelo started pursuing his long time love of bushcraft,  enjoyed being one with himself in the wilderness. He realized that spending time outdoors was an essential part of who he was and was what he truly enjoyed doing. This realization lead Angelo to eventually quit his job, sell his house and belongings and give away most of his clothing; just keeping the essentials and outdoor gear, to live the wild life full time.

Bushcraft became his passion, and now his full-time job.

His project: BecomingWildman is about a journey into self-reliance.

“I’m traveling to learn and practice the skills of the common past. By using the knowledge of bushcraft, I roam and live in nature. Looking for a more simple, meaningful and adventurous lifestyle.”
