Who is Nate?
Where are you from?
Originally from a small mountain town in Colorado, but I currently live in Seattle.
What is your dream job?
I'm incredibly lucky to say that I have my dream job. I'm a full time travel and adventure photographer and I couldn't be happier.
What is the favorite place you have visited?
Cusco, Peru. The combination of tower mountains, lush rainforest and vibrant cultural history can't be beat. I lived there for several months and I plan on visiting every year.
If you could choose one meal for the rest of your life what would it be?
My favorite food is sushi but I think that would get old after about a few months (especially for breakfast). I think I'm going to have to say Pizza. An old classic.
If you could pack up your bags right now and go anywhere where would you go?
Antarctica. I'm fascinated by such a desolate, remote location and I've always loved ice. It's my dream destination.
What is the best advice you’ve ever been given?
"It's not what you know, it's who you know." Making lasting relationships and treating everyone with respect is a far better benefit for one's career and life than simply working hard and ignoring everyone. Be good, and good will follow.
What was your main motivation to join the REMU Family?
I've always loved South America, from the people to the food to the culture and the textiles. Seeing beautiful handmade clothing from Ecuador hooked me, but the added humanitarian aspect of employing locals combined with the environmental aspect of upcycling fabrics really sealed the deal!
What is your favorite REMU product?
The Agua Blanket is GORGEOUS. Literally can't stop looking at it, and it has the added benefit of being super warm and soft, also!
