Often we get dream clients, but rarely do we get a dream client that also makes us dream of checking off our bucket lists and re-doing our weddings. We lucked out with @taramarolda. Here’s a peek at her brand. Go visit her Insta, then pop over to her new website. Read all about her adventures (we’re personally in love with the cape buffalos story). She’s absolutely worth an Insta detour...
Meet our Active Endeavor Ambassador crew! Our AEA’s are local outdoor enthusiasts and athletes who aren’t afraid to explore the impossible. We asked each one a few fun ?’s to get to know them better. Today meet Quincy @quincy_calvin. Originally from Des Moines, he now splits his time between here and Denver. Favorite place to #getoutside in Iowa is Raccoon River Park as he can run a lap around the lake then stand up paddle board around after. Favorite vacation spot outside of IA? He loves Germany and has been a couple times, and already is planning another trip back. Good food, beer, and access to the Alps in the south! He also loves St. Lucia in the Caribbean and said it’s probably the most beautiful place he’s ever been, with the Pitons being one of the most beautiful and distinct natural landmarks in the world. When he’s in Des Moines he loves enjoying the Iowa craft beers at the local breweries we have around town. (Current top pick is the No Coast Grapefruit IPA from @peacetreebrewing!) This winter you can find him cruising the hill at @sevenoaksboone as he’s on ski patrol and likes being on the slopes as much as possible. His most loved item from Active Endeavors?! Quincy said while he’s not usually a vest guy, the best thing he’s ever picked up from AE is his Nano Air Light Hybrid vest, which has become his go-to in cold temps and is easy to pack anywhere. He loves it so much he actually wrote a blog post about it last year - check it out on our AE website! #activedsm#yourstoryisourstory#getoutside#activeambassador
