PHOTOGRAPHER, ACTIVIST, ADVENTURER
Every time Jackson embarks on a world adventure he collects one bag full of trash. It’s his small way of saying thanks to mother nature. He's traveled the world taking beautiful photographs and cleaning up the place. He's the founder of Adventure Bag Crew a movement to empower people to make a small effort and pick up a bag of trash while they explore the natural world. We see Jackson as a leader inspiring youth to have a heart for the planet and make sustainable choices that guide their life decisions.
CONSERVATIONIST, TOUR LEADER/OPERATOR
After discovering long ago that his natural habitat is in the mountains, Chris decided to pursue his mud and snow-covered path as a long-distance hiker, photographer, conservationist, and adventure tour operator at Epic Backpacker Tours; a small adventure tour company offering trips to off the beaten path destinations. Currently, Chris spends a majority of the year traveling and leading trips in the Karakoram range in Pakistan, at the threat of overdosing on rice, roti, and sweet chai. When he is not on the road (and most of the time when he is), Chris also writes full time for the Broke Backpacker adventure travel blog.
A tireless adventure photographer, Kyle lives full time on the open road in his fully restored '55 Airstream and is always game for any adventure or assignment we throw at him. Time and time again, Kyle's mechanical sensibilities and outdoor skills prove indispensable as he gets our team out of precarious situations during international expeditions.
SURVIVAL EXPERT, INSTRUCTOR, AUTHOR
Dave, one of GRAYL's most ardent longtime supporters, is a survival expert and co-owner of The Pathfinder School, the United States' Premier School for Self Reliance.

When an opportunity arises at GRAYL for doing just about anything risky, without fail, Jodie Morse says "YES!" She epitomizes the word adventurer and we're grateful for her presence and contributions to GRAYL as a skilled photographer, world traveler, outdoor educator, and her many other talents (i.e. stunt driver, singer, musician, pet whisperer, shapeshifter).
