“I believe life is all about the journey, searching for those special moments of reflection, where you are one with your environment, and the people who are close to you. Action sports are a means to achieve these moments.”

What are you looking for in a Network?

I am looking for a network that shares the same vision and perspective on why we do what we do. I want to be able to communicate that action sports are a reflection of life, and show the passion that is required to grow and excel at what we do. I want to work with a network that understands the process, and is interested in more than just an action reel.

What events do you attend?

I love to watch live music and attend the good ol’ hockey game.

Who do you look up to in your profession and why?

I look up to people that bring something unique to their sport and have a passion that is contagious. Shane McConkey was the ultimate embodiment of this. Suz Graham has been a big influence on my BASE jumping. She is very calculated in her approach and it’s awesome to jump with someone with the experience and skill that she has. I like watching Gigi Ruf and Nicolas Muller ride a snowboard, they see the mountain with a unique set of eyes and they make it look good!

Do you create/co-produce your own video content?

I do! Follow me on instagram (@bradendean) to see what I’m working on now.

Do you play video games?

NHL!

Do you belong to any charities or non-profits, do volunteer work?

I am a member of the Troutsmen Club of Leisure in Whistler, BC. We organize fundraising events to benefit the community in the Sea to Sky corridor between Squamish and Pemberton BC.
