When did you first discover FiveFingers?

In 2014, I bought a pair for my first big solo travel adventure around US and Europe (lightweight but grippy!), and fell in love.

Favorite pair and why:

Honestly, I wear the Furoshiki boots most often! They’re perfect for the desert in the winter and perfect to slackline in. I wear the Alitza Loop most often when traveling, and honestly, they’re my “dress shoes”... LOL

What’s your passion:

Slacklining and Acro

How have FiveFingers changed your life (if they have!):

I definitely feel like my feet are stronger and more dexterous! It’s forced me to pay attention to how I’m walking, I used to supinate (walk on the outside of my feet) and when in FiveFingers, I can feel where I’m putting my weight. I think (but don’t know) that when I stopped supinating, a chronic pain in my sacrum lessened quite a bit.

What's the most popular question you get about FiveFingers?

“Are those comfortable?”

What would you like to see in FiveFingers' designs in the future?

I’d love to design a slackline-specific shoe with Vibram!

Name 3 people you most admire:

My mom, author Gregory David Roberts, and anyone who’s ever made a scary choice to follow their dreams.

What accomplishment are you most proud of?

It’s two-part: Graduating with an engineering degree, and then deciding to go a totally different direction and not use my engineering degree.

What’s the most beautiful place you’ve ever been?

It’s a tie between Yosemite National Park and right here in my home, Moab Utah.

If you could eat only 3 foods for the rest of your life, what would they be?

Bread, Avocado, and Lemons (together)

What’s the most courageous thing you’ve ever done?

Decided to not get a job after college and travel the country with no money in a truck.

What is the best piece of advice you’ve received?

Say yes now, figure it out later.

What else should we know about you?

I guide adventures in Moab! Check out my website below. Also, if I’m home, I’m probably wearing a cat onesie and drinking way too much coffee.
