Things That Excite Us

  • Anything that has a beating heart and moves about the Earth to the beat of their own drum.
  • Playing around with the communication landscape through words, gestures, posture, vibes, energies, sounds, symbols…seriously. There’s no right or wrong way to communicate something, but it’s incredible to see the impact your communication choices have on a person or group of people (like consumers, cough cough).
  • Exploration and adventure! We’re hella curious. We wouldn’t necessarily call ourselves adrenaline junkies, but if there is a new experience to try, let’s just say you can count us in.

Places We’ve Journeyed to & Can’t Get Out Of Our Minds:

Mads: Cambodia stole my heart as soon as I stepped off the plane. I spent one month immersing myself in their unfathomable history and was touched by the people’s strength and kindness – it was tangible in every interaction I had.

Court: I fell in love with Vietnam. It was the first place I traveled that I left feeling like it had changed me. I personally can get caught up in the hustle, the constant need to be working towards something, but the people I met and experiences I had there reminded me the beauty in being still and content. Plus I have some pretty fantastic stories. Holler some time if you want to swap!
