Stepping Out : An Alaskan Expedition
Three women set out to ski in the Alaska range for their first time. Serving as their own guides they were excited to arrive on the glacier and were quickly humbled by the complex structure of the terrain. In a new setting, they reimagine what success looks like beyond the familiar expectations of adventure athletes. The mission? Thrive in new roles and progress as a team to test their limits as skiers and leaders. No trip is perfect but the most memorable ones evolve beyond sport.

Marmot: Stoke Your Fire Commercial
We were hired to work on a commercial to honor the legacy and humble beginnings of Marmot and celebrate its future. Due to the pandemic, we couldn't shoot new footage to capture our vision but thankfully we were able to pivot. We utilized some of our own footage and sourced footage from epic creative talent. We named the edit "Stoke Your Fire" as the narrator is the “Wild”, reminiscing on the good times and reminding us that although the world has changed, the "Wild" hasn’t, and neither have we. So stoke the fire burning inside you and get outside and explore.
