Featured on Travel Channel | Cliff Jumping

For the life of a wannabe adventure/athlete/filmmaker, very view opportunities actually come from my YouTube videos that I spend hours making. This, however, is one of those rare moments when something usually too good to be true, actually turned out to be an epic opportunity! Back in early August of 2015, I received a message on YouTube from a “producer” from Los Angeles, telling me how she is shooting a show for The Travel Channel. She proceeded to explain that she saw my cliff jumping video and wanted to know if I would like to participate in one of their …

Adventures in OKC | Pt. 2 [Video]

All work and no play makes Zach a dull boy… or at least I try to think like that. I was sent down to Oklahoma City for two more trips since my first video, and decided to explore everything OKC has to offer. Not an hour after I landed, I was headed over to Wake Zone Cable Park for a sick session. The guys there were ridiculously good. Between the food and work, I was also able to catch some time in the gym. ClimbUp OKC is a must for any travelers passing through. It’s such a unique experience climbing …

Kayak Camping | Afterwork Adventure [Video]

After work, on a Wednesday afternoon in the summer, we packed up the kayaks for our first kayak camping experience down at Seldon Neck State Park in Connecticut. The campsite was absolutely incredible and made for a night I will never forget. Cherry on top… made it into work the following day by 7:30AM! It seems these days that activities like hiking, camping, skiing, mountain biking, and outdoor climbing are reserved for those “free” hours between 5PM on Friday to 5PM on Sunday. We pretty much only allot ourselves a 48 hour block to have fun each week, which most …

Flamenco + Endless Tapas & Sangria | Barcelona

As much as I hate falling into the trap of touristy packages that force you to stand in line for an hour to take the same exact picture as everyone else; this, was not one of those times. This was by far one of the best experiences I’ve ever had to pay for, and I would do it over again in a heartbeat. When you picture Spain, or Barcelona specifically, traditional Flamenco dancing comes to mind… along with tapas and sangria. This night captured that entire experience in the most authentic way. My one friend, Christian, had already done this …

Greatest Nap Of My Life | Iceland

Picture yourself standing on the top of a mountain, in Iceland, surrounded by massive, white-capped peaks to the east, and an endless coastline to the west. For most people this would be the pinnacle of a trip, that beautiful, scenic moment where everyone is staring out in the distance and reminiscing on how incredible the days in that mysterious country have been. However, this was not the case for the four of us. At that moment I just described, we had been traveling for nearly 16 straight hours and had only in Iceland for  about 4 hours. Normal people would …

Finishing The Appalachian Trail [Pictures]

My friend, Christian, accomplished a dream of his, which was to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail. We were lucky enough to share that moment with him at the finish of the trail, on the summit of Mount Katahdin. The Appalachian Trail begins at Springer Mountain, Georgia, travels 2,198 miles to the summit of Mount Katahdin, Maine. It passes through 14 states: Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine.

Nónhamar Guesthouse Review | Iceland

Solitude, coziness, and untouched beauty. These are just a few of the ways I could try to describe the Nónhamar Guesthouse. Here sit three of the most picturesque cabins that lye at the foot of Vatnajökull glacier mountains and boast a view of the vast coastline that seems to be endless. This guesthouse is tucked away in the southeastern coast of Iceland, in a town called Hof. Sure, this place is nearly perfect in itself, but it’s true appeal is it’s proximity to everything and nothing at the same time. The isolation is purely bliss, due to the fact it’s a 4 hour drive …

Oktoberfest | An Unreal Experience

If you’re anything like me, you’ve dreamt one day  of traveling to Oktoberfest, standing on a table with a full liter of beer in your hand, while singing your heart out to a traditional Oktoberfest song arm-in-arm with a local German. Quite an imagination, no? For the most part of my life I thought this would be a stretch to ever get to Oktoberfest, let alone have that quintessential moment that I’ve always pictured. One by one, a plan came together, and I ended up being able to share this exact experience with six of my friends… Lederhosens and all. …

Epic Drone Footage [Video]

Drone shot compilation from the past year, ranging from the mountains of Maine to the beaches on the coast of New Jersey. Drones have really changed my perspective of the possibilities for filming. 99% of these shots would not have been able to be captured without spending thousands of dollars on helicopter rides for a few seconds of footage each. Now, we are able to view the world as if we had wings of our own.
