One of Stio's values that resonates with me is their commitment to sustainability. As an athlete, I have seen firsthand the impact our actions have on the environment, and I believe that it's our responsibility to do everything we can to minimize our footprint.
Finding balance in daily life requires effort and intentionality, but being outside in the outdoors can be an excellent way to recharge and prioritize your well-being. Balance is the only way my body and mind can both thrive. Depending on the season, the sports differ, but the commonality for me is always the mountains. If my body is happy and healthy, then my creativity and productivity go up exponentially.
I dream BIG. Too many to list.
I like to listen to the birds and trees around me. Nature has so much to say if you are willing to listen.
If someone wants to pursue a life of mountain sports and adventures, my advice would be to start by building a strong foundation of skills and knowledge. This means taking the time to learn the fundamentals and safety protocols to feel confident in any situation you find yourself in. The mountains and outdoor environments are always changing, and there is always more to learn and explore.
