G.O. 071 - Canyoneer Freddy Unger Finds Focus

Freddy Unger is recognized in the Southern California canyoneering community as an active leader eager to share his knowledge and offer opportunities to new participants. Prior to discovering canyoneering, he was struggling with substance abuse and watching his life erode. He credits the friendships he developed in the outdoors as a lifesaver. Freddy and Jason sat near a distracting water fountain one morning discussing the benefits of the outdoors, true friendships, maintaining sobriety, and why Freddy avoids driving.

G.O. 054 - Aaron Nardi, VHS to BMX

Aaron Nardi found himself shooting videos and riding BMX professionally at an early age. Eventually, he left behind his county fair performances and moved to Los Angeles where he began to dabble in marketing and photography ultimately discovering the power of controlled lighting. He now works primarily as a cinematographer and photographer with a large focus on fitness, sports, and music. He is also the co-creator of the series “Skaters in Cars” for ESPN. Aaron and Jason sat in Griffith Manor Park one morning discussing camera gear, bicycles, the evolution of video, and the confounding longevity of the VX1000.

G.O. 013 - Downhill and Up With Pamela Zoolalian

Pamela Zoolalian wants to do everything. She is not content pursuing only one sport, but lets the seasons decide what is available to her. Whether mountaineering, surfing, backpacking, snowboarding, kayaking, or mountain biking, she is most fulfilled outdoors. In 2013, she decided to hike the 272 mile John Muir Trail. In addition to her love for the slow-moving world of backpacking, Pamela also has an appetite for speed with a past in professional street luge. She is the only female athlete to compete in the ESPN X Games, Playstation Xtreme games, and NBC Gravity Games. She and Jason met at the Eaton Nature Center one afternoon to discuss these lifelong passions.
