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 celebrates discomfort—a theme at the core of each adventure, and each story he tells.

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