Lucky Monkey is a short film that illustrates a the vibrant events throughout the past year of my life spent in Patagonia and Yosemite National Park. I tried my absolute hardest to capture my experiences while operating at my physical, mental, and emotional limit during the climbs and rescues. Though, during these difficult times, it felt pointless, inappropriate, and greatly inconvenient to pull out my camera. After the fact, I can't express how thankful I am to have captured such unique moments. I'm unbelievably lucky to be continually surrounded by incredible people in such inspiring places. Creating the film was a great learning experience, as I poured every ounce of energy and creativity into it.
I'm posting this from Bangkok, Thailand, where I purposefully chose to be as far away from big mountains as possible!!!! See you in the valley this spring!!!

Some great shots in this recap video. It's hard to capture such moments as it often takes that extra bit of effort when so much energy is spent on climbing. Good job - looking forward to more edits for the upcoming year!
