Kim Havell and I have traveled together on ski trips to Bolivia and Antarctica. Working for Sweetgrass Productions, our trip to Bolivia was the first time I’d been hired to shoot a big trip rather than guide it.

The interview was inspiring enough that I made a time-lapse “thank you” that afternoon.
