Hi! I’m Jonathan.
And that’s my wife Alexandria, and our pups, Benji and Ellie over there. Welcome to Explore Inspired!
I got my start creating media, traveling, and learning the ups and downs of entrepreneurship when I was in middle school. My older brother (when he was 14) started a video production company and I grew up building that with him. Along the way I studied marketing and environmental science at Bryant University and after graduating, I had to switch things up. The mountains were calling!
I followed a crazy dream on a one-way ticket to South America and spent a few years making the Between The Peaks film. After releasing that, Explore Inspired was kind of my “what’s next!” If you’re interested, you can learn more about my career as an outdoor athlete, photographer/filmmaker, and speaker here. But on Explore Inspired, it’s about you.
Since starting this blog in 2015, I’ve been fortunate to work with many of the top brands in the outdoor industry and beyond, travel the world climbing, volunteering, and telling stories about my adventures, and I share weekly advice and inspiration through The Explore Inspired Show and The Stokecast. My goal is to take everything I’ve learned from every country I’ve visited, mountain I’ve climbed, conference I’ve either spoken at or attended, coach I’ve worked with, and much much more, and give those lessons to you.
I want to help you push past comfortability, channel your confidence and creativity, and start to live the life of your dreams. If you’re looking to level up as an adventurer, an athlete, an entrepreneur, or an activist, this is a good place to be. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you’ll join me on this journey for a while!
