Engearment Podcast with Sean Sewell - Rafael Pease - Connections Movement, Splitboard Mountaineer
Engearment with Sean Sewell
Engearment Podcast with Sean Sewell - Rafael Pease - Connections Movement, Splitboard Mountaineer Rafael is one of my favorite people. He stops by the Engearment studio for his 2nd podcast on his way back to Chile to edit 2 of his upcoming Nat Geo documentaries. We talk about the challenges of summiting a 21K Chilean volcano in the middle of winter. Fighting for public access to the beautiful mountains of Chile. Government censorship and control. The adventures that went into making these films. And so much more. He tests gear in the craziest conditions and is an Engearment OG partner. Truly, he is one of a kind! It is a lively conversation and full of unedited dialog (not safe for work or kids!). He is truly inspiring and fighting the good fight.

Rafael Pease – Ep. 11 Rafael Pease was born in Paris, France, but has lived most of his life traveling around the world. After becoming burnt out on the competitive nature of team sports as a kid, Rafael found his true passion at the age of 17… snowboarding. Since that moment, Rafael has not taken his foot off the gas. He has spent years chasing snow back and forth between the US and Chile, along with a few trips to other parts of the globe including Japan and Kyrgyzstan. During this period, Rafael also worked to receive his Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Science from the University of Colorado Boulder. Through this program, combined with the time he spent adventuring in the mountains, Rafael decided that he wanted to make an impact on the world through environmental activism. While there are many ways to go about this, Rafael decided to create the Connections Movement, a production collective exploring the connection we as humans hold with the environment through various distinct lifestyles, cultures, and geographical locations. His first big film was called Yugen, a 3-year borderless mountain-based documentary film that explores the connection we as mountaineers and environmentalists share with the natural world. Today Rafael is working on putting out his next set of films, most notably, Tupungato, a Land Rights film that will showcase the creation of a national park through his perspective as a snowboard mountaineer and environmental activist. With a long future ahead of him, there is no doubt that Rafael will continue to make an impact on the world for many years to come.
