About Me

Hey guys! I’m Kirsten Alexis, and I am a California-based content creator and adventure enthusiast. I believe that life truly begins outside our comfort zones, and that we become our best selves by stepping into the unknown.

I was raised on Jimmy Buffet, beaches and grew up in a time where outdoor adventures were mandatory, where playing outside and having a big imagination.. went to ucla .. scoliosis

I am a tomboy at the core, and … I have sense of humor. One of the boys

But I am also a big dreamer. I love the simple, little moments in life such as how stargazing can make us feel so small … I want to live in a world where people … I want to create content that is engaging and inspiring rather than create a fear of missing our or inadequacy. I want everyone to be motivated to live their dreams and be their best selves through storytelling and media sharing.

In terms of outdoor adventures, I am a high-altitude mountain trekker with dreams of completing the Seven Summits. So far, I have done Kilimanjaro and this year I will be attempting Elbrus. I am also a licensed skydiver, and aim one day to be a coach. I also can be found surfing, paddleboarding, snowboarding, hiking and exploring with my camera or drone. I love storytelling through sharing photos and content from my travels.

So far, I have been to six continents and over thirty countries.

Some of my most memorable travel and adventure experiences have been:
