What are you looking for in a Network?

I am looking to expand the arena in which I share my work and get inspires through cinema. I’m often shooting for/with multi-sport athletes and exploring back country areas and feel Edge is an ideal platform to share with millennials.

What events do you attend?

As I am based in the Canadian Rockies, there is no shortage of festivals and sporting events. I typically attend mountain film festivals across Alberta and British Columbia, as well as sporting events such as ski/snowboard cross, climbing events, mountain/outdoor conferences, and biathlon/triathlon events. I also attend many social media/community related events, TEDx and instameets when I am near cities.

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

Jimmy Chin. Conrad Anker. Mike Horn. Alex Honnold. Renan Ozturk. Chris Burkard. I look up to all these people because I find myself deeply inspired by their work, and after I interact with their films and photography I find more of my own inner grit & resiliency, which helps me take on whatever is next.

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

Yes. My roots have been in photography but I have grown into video over the last 3 years. A friend of mine and I have recently started our own collaborative media house called Flinthawk. Flinthawk is the merging of our work and will be our front for everything digital cinema & film related.

Do you play video games?

I’m old school. I used to play Tony Hawk and Max Payne religiously.

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

I’ve worked with several nonprofits/social good organizations in the past. Most recently and notable would be the Nature Conservancy of Canada.

What are the top 5 brands you’d like to work with?

MEC, Osprey, Outside Magazine, Black Diamond and k2 Skis.
