This summer I’m hiking the Pacific Northwest Trail! While I’ve done countless backpacking trips this will be my first thru hike. I’ve done a lot of random stuff on my spins around the sun: Worked in the mountains of New Zealand, the construction yards of Australia, made & screened films at 20+ festivals in 7 countries, lived in a van, been an organic farmer, roller derby announcer, the list goes on. My main profession is videography & photography, which I’m happy to report (much to the surprise of my parents) I’ve been gainfully employed in for the last 15 years.
