Memory in Nature: When I was a young kid, spending time in my grandmother's garden picking beetles off the flowers. I remember thinking how big surrounding nature felt, whether I was roaming a new part of the forest or down by the lake. Growing up in Ohio, I was always fascinated by the geography of the west, so I was naturally pulled into nature and inspired to see all it had to offer.
I joined Fenix Outdoor: I've always admired Scandinavian design and spending time outside, working for Fjallraven was a way to merry the two together. At the time I started, there was opportunity to grow and help establish the brand in North America. It was an easy choice as a leader in sustainability in the outdoor industry.
Part of my Job: Meeting people from diverse backgrounds with a variety of skills. Helping drive sustainable change in the outdoor + apparel industries. Traveling across North America + Sweden.
Outdoor Activity: Hiking in the desert + swimming in the Pacific Ocean
Mountain I'm Climbing: Learning how to mountain bike + perfecting my kitchen skills
I am most proud of in my work: Having a positive impact on people, product + culture
