Video: One Trip Can Change Everything

One Trip Can Change Everything, featuring Andy Mann

Get inspired by National Geographic Explorer, Andy Mann, as he explores the shark sanctuary waters of the Bahamas.

National Geographic Photographer, partners with Eagle Creek to introduce the all-new Guide Series. Andy Mann is an active voice for conservation through the art of travel and storytelling. 

It’s an incredible honor to be a voice for our oceans, and to collaborate on the Eagle Creek National Geographic Guide Series. It’s rare that a product is made to fit the expeditions and travel I put my gear through. In all actuality, it’s a huge weight lifted off my chest knowing there now exists a kit built as tough as the environments I work in.

My name is Andy Mann, and I use storytelling as a means of conservation. I act as a conduit between science and policy. If I’m doing my job correctly, I’m triggering an emotional response with the viewer and helping to influence policies by arming scientists and advocates with the right visual stories.

That’s probably the 10,000-foot view of what I was put here to do. Upon closer inspection you’ll find I am a true adventure junkie who is addicted to continuously searching for the unknown and the art of traveling. 

Wait…traveling is an art??? Yes. Have you ever slid through the security line, nailed the TSA check-point and walked right onto the flight? Feels good right? Since I spend about 200 days a year traveling I find a lot of pleasure in the small things. Like having the perfect gear for the mission. I invite you, traveling artist, to try out the Guide Series, step up your game, find the perfect song, and two-step your way across the planet.  

As the newest member of the Eagle Creek family I look forward to sharing my adventures and travel tips with such a like-minded community. I invite you to reach out to me through Instagram (@andy_mann) at any time, for any reason. I have a few trips under my belt, and I am happy to lend a helping hand.

From Colorado with love – 

Andy
