In his own words:

Farthest Destination You've Traveled: Bandung, Indonesia

Funkiest Food You've Eaten: Stinky Tofu

Describe Your Craziest Adventure: I don't know if there's a "craziest" but going to the D.R. Congo had the craziest travel. It took 5 days to arrive at our final destination, then 24 hours to get home. Along with 4 plane rides, a super short runway for take off, insanely off the grid living, and the worst roads I've ever experienced it was definitely memorable. 

Favorite Method of Travel: Land Rover Defender on a dirt road

Playlist: Movie Sountracks- Gladiator & John Wick currently

Inspiration: Being able to have a global impact while growing my local community.

Describe an unforgettable moment caught on camera:

In 2014 I was able to teach two young adult women how to use a faucet for the first time. This was the first time in these women's lives that they didn't have to work for water as we provided a water system with spigots where they were living. As an American that can't remember when I learned how to do this it greatly impacted me. It shows how privileged we are in First-World Countries.

Ben Greco, Assistant/Editor

Ben initially joined the team in 2016 as an intern before studying abroad in Germany. He proved his abilities & work ethic during that time which gave him the opportunity to re-join the team in spring 2017 assisting on location & with finishing renovations at the studio.

In his own words:

Farthest Destination You've Traveled: Berlin, Germany

Funkiest Food You've Eaten: Ants

Describe Your Craziest Adventure: My first trip to Nicaragua when I was 17. I had no idea what to expect, and went alone with my friend who was only 18 at the time.

Favorite Method of Travel: Trains for aesthetic, but planes are better

Playlist: Talking Heads, Johnny Cash, St. Vincent, Alexandre Desplat, Calle 13, David Bowie at the moment

Inspiration: I'm inspired when I see people doing something that they're clearly really passionate about. It's infectious and makes me want to get out and do stuff.

Describe an unforgettable moment caught on camera:

While in Nicaragua, we visited the homes of people who live and work a trash dump. A lot of the footage I got there I'll remember forever. One of the families there was completely out of food, so we took their 7 year old daughter back to the school for the night to feed her. I have a shot where she's looking out the car window and sort of muttering to herself. I don't know why but that shot has stuck with me the most.

Chips Eisenbach, Chief Break-Time Officer

Chips joined the team in April 2016. She instantly became a very important part of the team keeping Simon in check so he doesn't stare at a computer screen for 24 hours straight. She has settled into her role well adapting to the new office space along with her 3 key sleeping locations depending on the time of day.

In her own words:

Farthest Destination You've Traveled: Alabama

Funkiest Food You've Eaten: Frozen chicken

Describe Your Craziest Adventure: The first two years of my life involved running in big circles chasing a bunny. However my dad loves taking me on road trips all over the north east. We tend to go to grandma's a lot where I try to chase chipmunks that taunt me out the window.

Favorite Method of Travel: Mini Van- my dog bed in the back is wonderful

Playlist: Whatever dad makes me listen to

Inspiration: Naptime

Describe an unforgettable moment caught on camera:

This one time I was soooo tired from running at the park that dad caught me in full on derp mode with my tongue completely out of my mouth while I was sleeping... It's a good thing i'm cute because the pile of drool he had to clean up was grossssss.
