Chris Brinlee, Jr. Is a Storyteller.

Stories, however, are not best-told from inside the walls of a cubicle, so in August 2014, Chris left his behind—quitting his fancy advertising art director job to go experience something more.

Since then, Chris’s adventures have led him around the globe—he’s backpacked endless summer days in Alaska, climbed 6,000m peaks in Nepal, ridden motorcycles across Vietnam, and paddled remote fjords in Greenland seeking first ascents.

On each adventure, Chris celebrates discomfort; both his work and life are reflections of that core ideal.

As a contributor for publications such as Red BulletinIndefinitelyWild, Outside, Huckberry, and Gizmodo—his words and photos have inspired millions, while his strong presence on social media provide daily doses of inspiration.
