It’s crazy, I didn’t even know that heli-camping existed, let alone think that I would ever have the opportunity to do it!
Insane adventure with @christianschaffer thanks to @iflyheli where we flew over Monument Valley for sunset, camped near super-remote Native American ruins in the desert, and then flew down the grand canyon at 100+ mph waving to river rafters below. —————
Where would you heli-camp if you could take off tonight? 🚁🌌⛺️

What will you do to push yourself this year?
This video shows my first attempt at standing up and trying to stay calm and relaxed enough to take even a few steps.
I had never been out on a line anywhere near this length or looseness.
Fall after fall, I didn't get very far, but In the end, it’s the struggles that make me stronger and the continued pursuit of growth that leads to success. This year my goal is to continue to face the big challenges (mental and physical) and stand up to take steps forward, even after I fall.

Huge thanks to @balancecommunity, @hippytree & @forsakeco for continually supporting myself and the sport of highlining. 🙏🏼🙌🏼

With everything going on with the government shutdown, it’s been a huge reminder of how special these places are and how important it is to continually protect them.
This shot is from a recent solo trip through the park as the last light hit El Capitan. I hope the Valley will continually be a place for us to slow down and appreciate how grand and magnificent earth really is.
Huge thanks to @smartwool for making this special trip to Yosemite possible.

Have you ever wondered what a colorful sunset looks like from beneath the surface?
I can't believe what I've been missing all of these years!
Peaceful moments in Indonesia with @brinkleydavies.

Spent the last few days surfing, chasing rainbows, hiking to remote waterfalls and camping on the beach in Kauai.
My friends at @kauaioverlander have put together the perfect 4x4 vehicles to rent and explore this island paradise in such a unique way. I’d been wanting to take one of their trucks out for a few years so I was stoked to finally make it happen! 🙏🏼🙌🏼
Kauai, Hawaii.
I hope you all had a happy holiday and are looking forward to what’s ahead in the new year!

There is something special about standing among waterfalls, towering granite cliffs, deep valleys, and the ancient sequoia trees. Yosemite was the first place I took a camera and ultimately the reason I fell in love with photography.
Huge thanks to @smartwool for making this trip out to Yosemite possible. It was great to explore some of my favorite areas of the park with @whitneyljames a few weeks back before the first snow storm!
It’s also always extremely humbling to get out on a highline a couple thousand feet above the valley floor in the birthplace of slacklining itself! #gofarfeelgood

I’m 33ft (10m) below the surface, backed into a tight corner with a wall of spiny sea urchins inches from my body, my mind bouncing between fear, camera settings, and the elegance of @jillyfish831 - all while trying to ignore my body’s signs that my one breath of air is running out.

I’ve always been attracted to things that push me mentally and physically. When I was a child, water would pour into my ears as a result of an ear surgery. It took me years to overcome my fear of water, even trying to touch the bottom of the pool didn’t seem possible.
Freediving became a goal of mine over the last few years and after a ton of research, training, and help from friends, I am stoked to be able to explore parts of the world that very few people get to see and share some of those experiences with all of you!
QUESTION- Should I post more black and white images? I love shooting in B&W but always hesitate to share them here.
Thank you again for all of your continued support!

I woke up at 4:30am yesterday to catch the first snowfall in Yosemite Valley.
It was 10°F (-12°C) but absolutely beautiful to witness El Capitan and the Merced River under the light of the small crescent moon.
A lot of you were asking for my camera setting on my Stories today, so here they are-
Shutter Speed- 25 seconds.
Aperture- f/4.
ISO- 6400.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Drove up to Yosemite last night to catch the first snowfall with my good friend Quin- @everchanginghorizon.
I love how he always has a different approach to places, like taking his paddle board out in below freezing conditions (he was out there cruising around for almost an hour). Check out his feed for the video and all kinds of other epic content!
