His Story

Nathan Fluellen is from Chicago but currently resides in Los Angeles. He is the creator, executive producer and host of World Wide Nate: African Adventures.

Nathan’s interest in travel began in high school, when his mother would travel on

missionary trips abroad. Her stories and experiences helped him realize that traveling

the world was not only an option, but also a duty, to better understand and respect people

around the world.

He owns a swimwear company, Kavata, a brand name that was inspired by and is in honor of Fluellen’s sister, Laini

Kavata Fluellen, who passed away from Triple Negative Breast Cancer in 2009. Ten

percent of each Kavata sale will be donated to Laini Fluellen Charities, a 501C-3

organization dedicated to providing funding for continued research for TNBC, as well as

educational resources for newly diagnosed patients.

Nathan also has a podcast - Escape with Nate which is an international travel show. He is also a brand ambassador for Breitling watches and his adventures have been sponsored by TheGrio.com, Chase Marriott, Time, Fortune, Travel + Leisure, Ford & lincoln Motors, Essence.com, Ebony.com, Mensfitness.com. He is a 3-time winner of

LAWebfest’s - Most Outstanding Series and Series Host.

 

Giving back is also one of Nathan’s chief priorities. He joined Rak Life, on a trip to Paje,

Zanzibar where they helped feed 300 of their elderly population. He has partnered with

Patagonia and South African Airways to donate wetsuits and surfboards to the Durban,

South Africa based non-profit Surfers Not Street Children.
