  1. What kinds of adventures do you seek? 

Always something new. I rarely go back to the same place. There are so many places to explore. Right now I’m most stoked on wildlife experiences like swimming with Whale Sharks in Ningaloo and hiking to the Gorillas in Uganda. But anything snow or ocean related I’m up for.

In Winter I love snowboarding, exploring the backcountry and overnight hikes. In Summer I love anything ocean related. At the moment I’m enjoying freediving.
