Connor Callanan and Conor Mallon, both 24 and the founders of UHSE (pronounced us) have been friends since high school. Following college graduation, the two found themselves at a crossroads and were faced with the age old question, “what do I want to do with my life?”  

It’s a question many of us have asked ourselves, but few have the courage to pursue the life we really want to live. For Callanan and Mallon it’s about doing what you love to do, chasing your dreams and finding out what you’re passionate about and what gets you excited, to feel alive.  

They both had a desire for adventure and new experiences and together, they decided to take the road less traveled. Setting out to explore the U.S. and Canada, Callanan and Mallon wanted to share their experiences and stay connected with family and friends. Hoping to inspire others to get out and explore the world they founded UHSE and share the stories of their travels, daily challenges and victories with friends and followers.

We take people with us along on our journey,” said Callanan. “We share our story and the stories of the people we meet along the way.

The two recently returned from a trip to the Grand Canyon and are already planning their next adventure through the southeastern part of the United States and Mexico.

We’ve had to make certain sacrifices in order to do what we want to do, but it’s worth it,” continued Mallon. “We’re making connections along the way, we’ve found something we’re passionate about and others feel it too and in return, they show us life in their perspective.
