How long have you been hammocking?

1 year !

How did you get started with hammocking?

My wife bought me an ENO hammock after she found out I had some interest in it seeing it on Instagram. I am a timelapse photographer/filmmaker so I thought it would be perfect to get hammock for doing timelapses being outdoors for long hours or overnight. I live in Hawaii so the weather is usually perfect for hammocking all year around.

You have so many incredible hammock adventures, do you have a favorite place?

I’ve been to places in Australia that was fun for hammock camping. Hikes in Hawaii offer so many hammock locations.

One a scale of 1-10 how much do you freakin’ LOVE hammocks?

What do you think hammocks will look like in 20 years? 100 years?

Definitely like the Tentsile Tents on steroids and highly advanced hammocks with temperature control that helps keep the hammock to a certain degree as the weather changes! That’d be awesome!

If you could hang up your hammock anywhere in the world where would it be?

I thought Havasupai Falls looked like an amazing place in Arizona. Somewhere at the top of Mauna Kea while stargazing and time lapsing.

What are your go to hammock accessories?

I currently have 6 hammocks and 5 of them were sponsored to me in exchange for photos and videos of the hammocks. Im currently liking the Lawson Hammock as it offers some shade and have more time to setup. But definitely quick straps are essential accessories.

hammock brands

Do you represent a particular hammock brand or are you constantly searching for innovative products?

I am not exclusive to any one company and will always look for the most innovative in design and function.

Is there anything else you would like to share with us?

I am currently planning more weekend trips to neighboring islands in Hawaii and a South East Asian trip at the end of the year. Cant wait to do more timelapses and create amazing photos while hammocking!
