Where are you located?
How did you get interested in the outdoors? Why do you think time outside is important?
When I was 11 years old, my family took a trip to the Grand Canyon. I immediately fell in love with the beautiful desert colors and lingering sunsets. I began spending my summers in southern Arizona, learning to rock climb and exploring the Saguaro National Park. From then on I was hooked!
The outdoors is always itself. Hot or cold, wet or dry, it is what it is - there is never any pretense. It reminds me to be myself - all of myself. Being outside is a constant reminder to embrace the different parts of what makes each of us unique.
What are your favorite outdoor activities?
My favorite outdoor activities include surfing, spearfishing, mountain biking, and camping. I love checking out new, dog-friendly patios too!
What is your favorite 12 oz beverage to keep in the stash pocket of your hammock?
Definitely a cold Lagunitas IPA ;)
What is your history with ENO gear?
I started using ENO hammocks when I lived in Puerto Rico. On the weekends, I would catch a ferry to the smaller islands Vieques or Culebra and hammock camp on the beach with a favorite book.
Favorite ENO product(s)?
I have a twin brother and we were once on the TV series Fear Factor “Twins Edition” together.
Best advice you were ever given?
Love only what you really mean.
