About the Speakers:
Heather Day is a San Francisco-based artist. Day’s art is a form of visual storytelling interested in conveying moments of interactions. She works primarily with paint and non-traditional materials, and is known for her murals. The philosophy that everything is a product of an experience frames each work, conveying stories of movement and ideas of color through seams, lines, and layers.
Widely recognized for the biggest airs in skiing, Julian Carr has quite literally taken it to the edge with two world records in cliff height. Carr has developed a reputation not only for big airs, but for all around skiing and for founding Discrete Clothing and a mountain running series called the Cirque Series.
As the tiny home building company behind DIY Network's "Tiny Luxury," Tiny Heirloom creates high-end custom houses on wheels in the Pacific Northwest. Striving to take a creative and fairly new tiny home platform and make it exceptional in all fronts, spurred the Tiny Heirloom team to come up with a way people can take ownership of the simple yet complex thought that “less is more".
From presidential speechwriter to the current head writer for Funny or Die's DC office, David Litt has already led a somewhat unconventional career path. Joining the White House at the age of only 24, Litt became the president's primary joke writer. His new best-selling memoir, That Hopey, Changey Thing, follows the life of a twenty-something in the Obama White House.
Inspired to travel to India by a bank manager using his position to bring about social change, the documentarian Andrew Hinton kept returning to find stories and people who inspired him. He spent 18 days living on a train to document the Jagriti Yatra and met a paperboy in Jamshedpur who he followed for a day, creating a short film which won the 2012 Vimeo Documentary Award. Hinton is currently filming a documentary about Ironman Tim Don's journey back to racing after he was hit by a truck in October 2017.
Rich Roll is a vegan ultra-endurance athlete and former entertainment attorney turned full-time wellness & plant-based nutrition advocate. Not only has Roll taken his craft to the edge, but as the host of the widely popular podcast, The Rich Roll Podcast, Rich interviews others who take it to the edge as well.
