Santa Barbara, Ca

I'm a full-time rambler and contract designer with as many skill sets in my quiver as there are plane tickets in my passbook. I've worked in ornamental iron, jigsaw puzzle design, bookmaking, glass engraving, and a variety of other mediums. I'm currently living out of a backpack as I trek my way around the world.


¡Official Launch of!

Zak Erving

My name is Zak, and I’m the tip of the spear here at Sparkpunk. I started this website out of a desire to share some of the wonderful aspects about traveling the world and all the people who fill it. In time, you’ll get a good idea of the spirit of travel that I and my friends carry into our adventures. You’ll hear about traveling close to the ground, read funny stories, learn about improvised travel gear hacks and useful practices, and hopefully learn and share a little about the greatest of travels: the journey inward.

I encourage you to stay in touch with commenting on your favorite posts, emailing me questions and suggestions, and fostering a global community through the Sparkpunk Facebook page…and don’t forget to participate in the monthly giveaways! I’ve got some sweet swag coming down the pipeline to for your next kick-ass adventure.
