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 paddled remote fjords in Greenland, ridden motorcycles through Vietnam, sailed with a crew to Antarctica, and climbed 6,000m peaks in Nepal.

Chris strives to #CelebrateDiscomfort—a theme at the core of each adventure, and each story he tells.

Chris specializes in bringing stories to life for both brands, and editorial outlets. As a contributor for publications such as Red BulletinIndefinitelyWild, Outside, Huckberry, and Gizmodo—his words, photos, and videos have inspired millions; while his strong presence on social media provide daily doses of inspiration.
