Took this photo this weekend after way too much whiskey and way too many s’mores. Good times in Big Sur as always.

Try think of something cuter than a puppy yawn 💤 I’ll wait.

This is Dodo @lumadeline



This is Stefan, he is going to die. So am I. So are you. And that’s okay.

@stefan_hunt is an amazing person I had the pleasure of hanging out with at @yeahfieldtrip this past week. If you have a moment you should check him out, and listen to why knowing that death is approaching can be a pretty sweet thing.

Catch you on the flip side



I grew up by the ocean back in Sweden and the coastline has always represented an escape to me. The great untamed waters out there know no borders and always remind me of the connection to other countries and their diverse cultures.

Find the color, even in the dullest of days.


There is light and beauty up there that no shadow can touch.

Guess what movie that quote is from?

Excited to announce that @theartrangers officially is live. I've gotten so much inspiration and joy from the national parks and we've created this platform for artists to give back to the parks using their art. Feel free to donate a print, purchase one by someone else, or help us spread the word #theartrangers. Thanks @goparks for supporting us in this mission and putting the money to best use.


Colder temperatures is no excuse not to go on evening adventures through the holidays! Staying warm through the chilly nights with @expressmen 🔥 Check the link in bio #expressyourgift #expresspartner


Had an amazing weekend with some badass people up in Tomales. We made cheese and played with baby goats 😱 Thanks @allbirds & @outdoorvoices for making it happen #jogwalkersclub
