Do you carry anything with you that no one else has?
“My Spot sat phone is something that seems like overkill to a lot of people, but believe me - on the rare occasion when you need it, it's invaluable.”
What about the skateboard and duct tape?!
“Why wouldn’t you take a skateboard and camo duct tape with you? A skateboard is basically a multi-tool for moving – you can put bags on it at the airport and save yourself a cart rental, you can use them as dollies for moving shots, and they're tons of fun when you have a little down-time. As for the camo duct tape – camo makes everything cooler. It's science.”
Have you dropped or damaged any gear recently?
“Absolutely. It seems like at least once a week I manage to wreck something!”
If you could add any one item to your pack?
“Any type of massage related device I can make fit.”
No room for a selfie stick in the bag, eh?
“Hahaha! – no way. My OlloClip wide-angle lens is the closest I get to a selfie stick.”
