Micah grew up in Big Sky, Montana and has been an active part of the Big Sky community since he was a little kid, skiing the mountain and scooping ice cream behind the counter at the Hungry Moose. He studied film and media at Colorado College for undergrad and went on to start his own production company in 2019 that specializes in outdoor media.
