Beyond Familiar with L. Renee Blount

Episode 1: Onewheel

If you’re not already familiar with L. Renee Blount (a designer & strategist, photographer, and climber bringing joy to the outdoors), allow us to introduce you:

“I believe in endless curiosity. From working in innovation and my love of adventure storytelling, I believe in trying something new each month to stay fresh, curious and humble. It helps my creativity as an ideator. Whether simple or grand, I believe in pushing the boundaries of my comfort zone in order to learn what’s possible and to celebrate curiosity.” - L. Renee Blount

When L told us about her practice of trying something new every month, we thought: now that’s something we can get behind. So we teamed up with her to bring you Beyond Familiar, a video series that (in her own words) is about “the journey, the joy, and the try”.

Join us as we document L doing rad things that she’s never tried before. Join her in making novelty and innovation a part of your own life. And if you have access to something that not everyone does, join all of us in sharing that access however you can.

This is the first episode in a series. Special thanks to our partners at Onewheel for sharing their gear, know-how, and resources to make this series a reality; to Outside for their support and promotion; and to L. Renee Blount for going Beyond Familiar.
