Recently I had an incredible honor when I got a call from a new adventure magazine called Adventure Monkey. They wanted to feature a cover story from me for their second issue. Now typically when I get these requests, its to do a story on someone else, or just shoot the photos; but they wanted this to be written and shot by, and about me!
I was totally floored and excited, but nervous to. "How am I going to write a story about myself and make it interesting without sounding narcissistic" I thought to myself. Originally they asked me to just write "My Story", but that seemed too similar to the last article that came about me in Rangefinder.
So I thought I would try to get creative and actually write a more narrative style story from one of my favorite adventures, and then use that to try and tie in aspects of how and why I live my life the way I do. It was a tremendous challenge for me, but I´m really stoked how it all turned out. And to now see it printed in a full 14 page article is beyond exciting. You can download the PDF of the magazine or order hard copies here (its issue 2). Hope you enjoy!!
