#67: Drew Butler | T1D Circus Acrobat, Snack Mom & World Traveler

Traveling through multiple time zones with diabetes while being sedentary on the plane can be a lot to handle, but it didn’t keep Drew from his 12 month adventure across the globe. In this episode, he shares his mis-diagnosis, transitioning into life with T1D as a young adult, his love of circus acrobatics and lessons learned while traveling abroad. He is truly an inspiration to all people living with this disease and his laid back personality is warm and welcoming.


Drew lives in Denver, CO, where he is a marketer, gamer, traveler, and recreational acrobat. Diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at the age of nineteen, he never wanted to let diabetes control his life or stop him from doing anything. He has been practicing circus acrobatics since 2012, and recently spent 12 months traveling around the world, working as a digital nomad. You can usually find him doing a handstand, playing Dungeons & Dragons, or planning his next international adventure.
