White Water Rafting: My Dad’s Bucket List

Two years ago, I was at a family party where we were playing a game. The premise was that everyone had to write something down on a piece of paper, mix it up in a hat, and one person had to guess who it  belonged to. One of the topics during the game was that you had to write down one of your bucket list items. One by one, we went around the room revealing which bucket list item was ours, and that was the moment I found out about my dad’s desire to go white water rafting. I was …

Feiyu Tech 3-Axis Wearable Gimbal Stabilizer | Mountain Bike Review & Unboxing

After getting a few rides in with this Gimbal, I sat down to review the pros & cons of the Feiyu Tech FY-WG 3-Axis Wearable Gimbal Stabilizer for Gopro HERO 4, 3+ and 3. It is an absolutely incredible & necessary piece of filming equipment for those looking to get solid footy from their rides out on the trails and beyond. First off, the gimbal does exactly what is expected of it. It keeps all the footy buttery smooth no matter if you are turning hard into berms, flying off jumps, crushing rock gardens, or what ever the trail could …

The Foster 100 | Sponsoring Service Dogs for Veterans

Each September, for the past 3 years now, a group of cyclists have come together to ride their bicycles 100 miles from Philadelphia, PA to Cape May, NJ for the annual Foster 100. Grinding out 100 miles on a bike is very very tough, but it is far from the difficulties our veterans face in combat when serving our country. These struggles can even become even more difficult when they return home. Which is why Team Foster is sponsoring service dogs to partner veterans suffering from combat-related disabilities including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI). My brother-in-law, Nick Liermann and …

Screw New Years Resolutions.. Make Goals for 2017

Forget about them! Resolutions are absolutely pointless. We all (myself included) make these unobtainable requests of ourselves to become the perfect version of ourselves… overnight. That is simply not how it should work, yet we do this every single year and are left disappointed by the end of February. Of course, the time of year never helps since most of us wish to be healthier and more active, in the coldest and shortest days of the year. This is my case to rebrand the whole New Years Resolution letdown into simply, “Goals for the year.” What’s the difference? Resolutions are more …

Visit Achensee Lake in Tirol, Austria

Simply beautiful. This is one of those places I’ve been, where the words to describe my first view of this place are difficult to formalize. Sounds cliché, and it totally is, but I still stand by my statement. Our taxi driver picked the four of us up from the train station and headed north, towards the mountains. The small towns we passed through were so tight, I barely thought one car could pass through, let alone us and the ones he kept passing. The road began upward from the valley, along these winding mountain roads that

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 …
