Jetting back and forth from So Cal to Whistler, Jussi is able to film his video part and still spend a good amount of time with his family.

And that’s exactly what the latest New York Times article achieves as Max Klinger tells the story of Jeremy Jones, and how his adventures into the unknown are beyond belief.
