Love of Adventure

I love hiking, camping, fishing, hunting and pretty much any other outdoor activity that allows me to journey through scenic mountains, trek across windswept valleys, or sit beside beautiful rivers.  In these adventures and moments that seem all too short, I like to wear and use nice, fun, comfortable gear.  As someone who has always been drawn to architecture and design, I’ve always had a yearning to build and create things.  I know what I like in regards to good-looking gear, and want to share it with you, if indeed, that’s your thing too.

Hope to Encourage

My true passion is to inspire, encourage, and add value to others.  The older I get, the more that defines who I want to become.  Life isn’t always unicorns and rainbows – my hope, besides crafting great gear, is to encourage others in chasing their dreams!  New things can be learned, great things can be accomplished, and dreams can be pursued!  With Otter Mountain, I’m in the process of pursuing one myself.

We are not defined by what we do, where we grew up, who our parents are or aren’t, or our past regrets.  We were all born with a purpose to do truly special things. We are so much more capable than the limits we place on ourselves or let others place on us!

Unfortunately, sometimes we are taught, coached, told and made to believe that we have to follow a certain path in life.  It might be a distinct educational path, or it could be a specific job or career – that “this” is what life is supposed to look like.

Your life and my life (what we do) are not defined by “where we work”.  There is so much more than that!

I wanted our “tag line” to be  make your own trail, because it doesn’t matter whether we’re hiking in the wilderness, stuck in a career we don’t enjoy, or facing a different crossroads in our lives; we can in fact create our own path and chase our dreams!

Today is the day you can start to make YOUR own trail,
