Bend, Oregon

An endurance coach, an ultra athlete and a family man, Jeff lives to run in wild places. Recognizing his responsibility to the planet, he also fights to protect these special landscapes. Jeff, who is a graphic designer by trade, believes that form follows function and that gear can always be better, lighter and more dialed; a self-proclaimed tinkerer, he will cut his shoes apart and modify his shorts in an effort to test out his new ideas. In addition to adventuring in the mountains, Jeff spends his time chasing three kids, four chickens, two cats and one dog around their organic garden in Bend, Oregon.
