MEET KIRK HORSTED – OUR HOST IN MINNEAPOLIS!
When he’s not out rambling and roaming, he wears these 5.5 hats…
1. Marketing Man: Kirk is ½ of 2 Heads, a Minneapolis-based copywriting & creative consultancy.
3. Avid Dad: Kirk takes (and follows) his two perfect children most anywhere.
4. Humble Volunteer: Kirk consistently shows up for field trips, class parties & association meetings—and coaches (one of) the best dang traveling baseball teams around.
5. Present-Minded Professor: Kirk teaches Advertising at the College of Visual Arts in St. Paul.
5.5 Half-time Hedonist: Kirk “breaks” for wining, dining, traveling, music-making, kayaking, cooking, gardening, chilling, & screen-free socializing.
His past sabbaticals include:
The Great Escape: 69 days in the West Indies & Caribbean in 2009
Mission: to show his children another way of learning and being, escape winter and launch his website.
The RTW Tour: 18 weeks in Italy, Malaysia, New Zealand & more in 2000/01
Mission: to explore unseen corners of the planet (with his wife & young son), chronicle it online and write a book.
The Fantasy Trip: 1 year in the Virgin Islands & Europe in 1994
Mission: to take a year off to find roots and bliss, and to test the portability of his business.
The Sanity Break: 7 months at Midwestern Lakes & Europe in 1990
Mission: to commemorate a convergence of endings and beginnings (jobs, houses, relationships, all the big stuff)
