Absinthe Microdose: Kimmy Fasani – episode 1

To date, Kimmy Fasani has accomplished a lot.

Overall, she’s a vocal leader in the snowboarding community who, without fail, brings up those around her to share in opportunity, success, and growth. In the first episode of the fourth edition of Absinthe Films’ Microdose, get to know Kimmy and beginning her snowboarding story.
