Work With Seize Your Adventure
Seize Your Adventure is a unique platform that is expanding the cross-section of adventure and epilepsy. It advocates the adventure lifestyle to a new, wider audience, whilst using adventure to bring awareness to epilepsy in an accessible way. I work with companies, charities and individuals from both the epilepsy and adventure sectors, and I showcase trusted, quality content and products. From advert placements in the podcast, to native content on the website and social media marketing, Seize Your Adventure can offer a range of ways to engage with a loyal following.

In 2010, thirteen individuals with a link to a neurological challenge (brain tumors, aneurysms, epilepsy, etc.) were inspired by a mutual friend’s determination to make something great come from his diagnosis of a brain tumor. The group shared a passion for the outdoors, an unyielding enthusiasm for life, and a drive to overcome the hardship of a neurological challenge while focusing on quality of life. These commonalities inspired the idea of Outdoor Mindset (OM).
Outdoor Mindset unites and empowers people affected by neurological challenges through their Community, Regional Meetups and Adventure Scholarship.
