Vancouver, BC

Seven years ago, AJ Leon was an unremarkably average financial executive in New York City, living the life he thought he was supposed to live. College degrees. Swanky apartment. A secure career.

And then something changed. Seeing the trajectory of his life unfold as a maddening race in which there are no winners, AJ quit his lucrative banking job in a brief moment of audacity. Just walked away… four days before his wedding. With only $2K in the bank and a backpack full of determination, he set out on a new adventure with his wife Melissa, traveling the world as a nomad, philanthropist, writer and entrepreneur.

THE LIFE AND TIMES OF A REMARKABLE MISFIT is an independent book project, a collection of personal essays written by AJ Leon about lessons learned along his winding path. Thoughtfully crafted and penned with heartfelt sincerity, each essay inspires readers to make their dent in the Universe and live a purposeful life.

If you’ve never quite fit in and you feel there is more to life than a job you hate, this book is for you.

If you’re a troublemaker, rabblerouser or benevolent disruptor, this book is for you.

If you are a thorn in the side of the status quo… or think you could be… this book is for you.
