I was there to tell the stories of athletes like
climbing legend Chris Sharma, kayaking pioneer
Eric Jackson and world champion surfer Lisa Anderson. Editors at National Geographic Adventure,
The New York Times Magazine and Sports Illustrated regularly turned to me to bring them startling, memorable images from the world’s wild edges.
