To Live Deliberately · 11 min · 2015 

Justin Willis spends one winter living out of his van near Hyalite Canyon outside of Bozeman, Montana. He wants to be close to the mountain because he is an ice climber, but he is also 19 years old and totally bewildered at what life holds for him ahead.

To Live Deliberately was made through the Big Sky Film Grant via Montana Film Office. It was my chance to briefly capture a spirit I had long admired in the younger brother of my best friend growing up. I partnered with photographer, filmmaker and climber Seth Langbauer.
