"“Before 2016, I’d never put the two words ‘outdoor’ and ‘industry’ together,” says documentary filmmaker Faith Briggs. The Brooklyn, New York, native worked for the Discovery Channel after graduating from Yale. But while on a shoot with the National Park Service in 2016, Columbia Sportswear offered her a position as a Director of Toughness, a gear-testing and storytelling role. She accepted, and the gig let her travel, play outdoors, test gear, and ultimately find a new professional home in the outdoor industry.Briggs now lives in Portland, Oregon, and works as a freelancer on outdoor industry and conservation films."
