Anonymous asked: What inspired you to design?
I got started in design mostly out of curiosity. I started teaching myself at a very young age and so the process naturally lead to producing photos, graphics, and videos. After working in multimedia for almost ten years now, I don’t care about design as much as I used to. To me, the product is more important and design can only come second. So I get more geeked out on building strong products these days. Pretty graphics are meaningless unless they support a great program or product.
Bike to hike!
Just got done editing a few photos from the shoot with Mazama Outdoors. Really nice company and I learned a lot on the shoot! Onward!
The RC Aerial Rig is up in the air and we’ve been getting some great footage, including this unexpected and unexplained wreck on Sunday! Enjoy!
Thanks to everyone that has been following along with the Jagat Lama film project I’ve been part of. The team has been training hard for the last 8 weeks preparing for the Himalayas. Alpine trainings starting at 3am, vaccinations, story development, rc aerial rig development, gear preparations and I’ve loving every second of it. This project wouldn’t have been possible without the tremendous support from Keen Footwear, Icebreaker, Goal Zero, The Clymb, Sterling Rope and the ton of other outdoor companies who have helped.
Bigger motor installed, Center of Gravity reinstated, and camera gimbal stabilizer added. Let’s get this thing off the ground!
