He's held standard jobs before completely swearing off money in the fall of 2000 and giving up his life savings. He has lived ever since without receiving or spending money. This choice has provided him with a sense of peace and a lifestyle that many envy. He currently lives part-time in a cave near Moab, when he is not wandering the country. Suelo has been featured in The Guardian, The Huffington Post, Details, the BBC, the Denver Post and on television shows like The Moaning of Life with Karl Pilkington.
