Hey My Friends

I am Christopher Rudder, a videographer, editor, podcaster, freelance writer, and owner of Rudderless Media in Toronto, Canada.

About Us

Together with my partner Gordana Grubor, we are day trip and road trip experts who, with our team, write high-quality, search-engine-optimized travel articles, itineraries and reviews for our websites, Road Trip Ontario and Rudderless Travel, and other online publications. 

In addition, with everyone turning to video platforms like YouTube and TikTok, I am a skilled videographer and editor who can bring destinations to life.

Plus, as an audio editor (with a sexy voice), you can find me co-hosting the Road Trip Ready Podcast with my co-host and long-time friend Danille Desir Corbett. As well as pulling the engaging interviews and stories out of our Road Trip Ontario and Rudderless Travel videos and shining a light on them with the Highway Highlights Podcast.

Life is a highway. But if you don’t get off it now and then, you’ll miss all the hidden gems—the best parts of the journey.

We can talk about travel all day, every day...

Why Multi-stop Road Trips?

Sure, all the action, history and culture (in terms of Art Galleries and Museums), nightlife, top restaurants, and more can be found in the cities. Still, all the country’s traditions, stunning nature, customs, gems, origin stories and off-the-beaten-path stories are outside the city limits.

Why Day Trips?

Planning trips can be overwhelming, and whether we’re talking travel over beer and coffee or writing actionable itineraries, taking amazing pictures or producing/editing video/podcast episodes, We’re passionate about helping our friends, family, readers, viewers, and listers discover off the beaten paths, culture, customs, traditions, food and of course beer.
