Who inspires you: my grandmother. She moved her 5 children from Malibu to Ketchum, Idaho after divorcing my grandpa. She started a new life there and taught her children to embrace the outdoors (ride horses bareback, raft rivers, climb mountains). I have her to thank for my love of wilderness, adventure, and fierce independence
