What made you decide to go into Overlanding/Off-Roading?
It all started many years ago as my Father George Sr. was also an outdoor enthusiast. At a young age he traveled all over California in his 1979 Ford Granada in search of a new adventure. He later met my Mother and then came my brother and I. I can vividly remember our family taking weekly trips to explore the unknown, whether it was a national park or a lonely dirt road. It was then when my love for off roading began. The simplicity of getting into a vehicle and roaming the endless dirt roads made unfiltered memories. The outdoors and off roading are part of me, it’s in my DNA.

When you spend time on the trail, what is your primary goal?
The primary goal is get out and unwind from the daily routine. As a content creator its also a perfect creative outlet to explore and work on my craft.
I know you take photos and videos for your YouTube Channel; do you have any advice for beginners trying to film their journey? What camera and set-up do you have?
Every journey starts with you taking action. The willingness to take control and push yourself to do something out of your comfort zone is key, Always remember that capturing the journey through video is impossible. But one thing you can do, is capture the experience and highlights to encourage others to get out and explore. Don’t be afraid to tell your story.
