Pursuing new experiences and exploration can lead to personal growth, expanded perspectives, and a deeper appreciation for life. Thinking outside the box is a core attribute to achieving greater fulfillment and success. Such is the story of Michael Motamedi. From his success in entrepreneurship to choosing his passion for adventure and cuisine, his life is not short of sensational stories to share, which are all showcased in his Original Web Series, No Fixed Address.
Having inspiration from the likes of Anthony Bourdain, Motamedi has embarked on a journey to experience the best of the world’s cuisine. “Food has always been a passion of mine. I never set out to emulate his style. I’m just being me, but it’s a huge compliment. I can only hope to experience as many cultures as he did.” he said in an interview with Wander Eater.
Throughout his journey, his unwavering pursuit of success has been evident. A few years ago, he redirected his focus towards the spirits industry, where he was brought on as the first hire at Rabbit Hole Spirits, a bourbon distillery located in Louisville, Kentucky. Rabbit Hole quickly became one of the fastest growing bourbon companies in the world. Prior to that, his culinary prowess caught the attention of renowned chef Michael Bonacini, who was thoroughly impressed by his Masterchef Canada audition, during which he prepared a delightful Seared Scallops and Yellowfin Tuna Sashimi dish. He went on to become a finalist of Masterchef Canada Season 2.
His passion for cuisine and his constant hunger for adventure pushed him to pursue the taste of the world. He started uploading his journeys on TikTok, amassing a substantial following. As he continued his adventure, from eating snails with an eccentric Dutchman in the Algarve to fileting a freshly-caught tuna off the coast of Italy, he gained the attention of Eric Damier, the founder of the widely-known travelers’ network EarthPix. From there, they created the fully-unscripted and travel-oriented Original Web Series No Fixed Address.
In the Web Series, Michael and his family embark on cultural and culinary journeys in different parts of the world. They visited Guatemala and Barbados and have shot upcoming episodes in Nicaragua and Mexico City. All episodes are shot and edited on an iphone to ensure there is a sense of rawness captured. No Fixed Address allows the viewer to see what it truly means to leave your comfort zone and explore the world. “I’ve always been the type of guy who wants to live his life to the fullest and enjoy every moment. I also want to be the best father to my daughter and the best husband to my wife. I want to make meaningful moments with them. I get to do all these by traveling.” he said.
Every No Fixed Address episode is viewed by more than a million people. Michael’s main goal is to inspire his followers to think outside the box and pursue their passion, the same way he did.
