Which of Stio's values personally align to you?

I firmly believe in sustainability and Stio is a huge advocate for sustainable practices. We both believe that being outside soothes the soul.

How do you create balance in your daily life?

My life definitely revolves around the mountains. I am either working or recreating in them 9/10 of the year. To balance, I always make sure to find time with my family and friends and do activities other than mountain sports.
