Jesse Levine spends his time mountain biking, skiing, and trying not to fall on his shutter finger. An Emmy Award-winning filmmaker and adventure photographer based in Crested Butte, CO, Jesse uses understatement as his super power. His calm, unassuming demeanor puts people at ease, whether they’re dropping into a steep spine in Alaska, crossing a raging river with a mountain bike over their head, or mic’d up for an interview about what actually makes them tick. His approach to creative work is to distill big ideas into their simplest form. This technique has allowed him to build a career and life that are a messy blend of connection, adventure, and a whole lot of airport food.
