In 2013 I helped set up the adventure channel on redbull.com with a dedicated crew of passionate adventure story tellers. Three years later I was let loose into the world, armed with several GoPros attached to my body. The amusing (and terrifying) results saw me take part in a human pyramid building contest in Mumbai, run a mountain marathon with a donkey in Colorado and get dragged around a motorcross race on a pair of skis in Latvia. Other work for the channel includes following the trail runner Leire Fernandez across Madeira for a running POV video and reporting on the ground-breaking feats that take place in the world of adventure.
Run a mountain marathon with a donkey? Take part in the world bog snorkelling championships? Join a troop of human pyramid builders in Mumbai? Ski behind a motorbike?All in a day's work for Red Bull's Insiders Series. What could possibly go wrong? Quite a lot actually...
