Jackson Foster is our guest today and someone who has lived an odyssey that is undoubtedly against the grain of consensus thinking in just shy of three decades on this earth.
Despite growing up in the concrete jungle of Los Angeles, Jackson always felt a deep pull to be outdoors.
During his high school years, he found the High Mountain Institute, where he spent a semester connecting with nature on a deeper level, and he was hooked.
Returning to his upscale private high school only further confirmed his need to take the road less traveled in life.
His biggest adventures started between high school and college when he rode his bike across America, traveled to Asia for a backpacking adventure, volunteered at an orangoutang orphanage, and apprenticed with a master potter. All of which sealed his knowing that he had to continue to live an alternative and adventurous lifestyle.
Jackson is a visionary who is bringing his visions to manifestation. He is a yogi, a vegan advocate, a farmer, most recently an ultrarunner, and a voice for all to take risks and dream extreme.
