Gabriel’s Bio

My name is Gabriel Andrus, I grew up in the rolling hills of southwestern New Hampshire. Growing up I spent my time playing in the mountains, lakes, and forests around my home and beyond. Through these experiences I developed a deep connection to nature and a passion for adventure. I believe in the importance of wildspaces and the value of time in nature. I started taking pictures as a kid and immediately fell in love with the magic of storytelling through photography and videography. I have taken my camera on just about every adventure since. Now at 20 years old I am pursuing a career as an adventure filmmaker and photographer. Whose mission is to tell stories from the far reaches of the earth, stories about adventure at the intersection of the human experience and environmental stewardship.
