He's making a living exploring everything, including his limits. 

"New Zealand, Australia, Thailand, Taiwan, China, Russia, Spain, Italy, France, Greece, Turkey, Qatar, Chili, … uh, Panama, did I say that one?" he said.

Corey has been to 37 countries. Along the way, he's gotten help from some big corporate names. Microsoft and Skype are the latest companies that have hired him to promote travel and global connectivity.

He's headed to Germany today to do a series of videos for their government's board of tourism.

Corey says he wishes more people would have the courage to chase after their goals. 

"So don't be discouraged when the world doesn't hand you your dreams. You gotta take 'em! And move from there," he said.

Corey says the purpose of his exploits is to share and inspire people to "kick the grind" and see the world.
