Playground of Choice:

Preserving My Playground:

“I recognize that rivers are the lifeblood of the ecosystem and a summation of the net influences on that river. I am a guest on that ride called a whitewater river and after my ride I go back upstream and back to reality where it’s easy to forget the river doesn’t need me to be complete. It just needs to flow, meander, and breathe without a hint of lasting human occupation,” comments Jeremy.  “For more information, read about preserving our recreational waterways with one of  KEEN’s longtime partners, American Whitewater.”

Favorite KEEN Shoe:

On the clock: KEEN Austin is tough enough for the jungle but made for the city streets.
Off the clock: KEEN Yogui from Après race to early morning walks with my dog Mazzy, all five toes agree!
