During the winter of 2013-14, a man by the name of Peter Maxwell passed away in an avalanche outside of Missoula, Montana. I read the news on Facebook and at first couldn't believe what I was reading.

Sir Peter Maxwell and I grew up together in Bozeman, Montana, ski racing at the local hill, Bridger Bowl. Reading about his death shocked me as if I had been struck by a bolt of lightning. Only a few days earlier I had posted a silly little ski edit about a run at Bridger called Psychopath. I remember noticing that Mr. Maxwell had "liked" my video. It was cool to see and so I clicked on his page to see what he'd been to.

I was impressed and humbled to read that Peter had his own recycling company and was doing very well for himself in Missoula. He was a year younger than me and although he and I weren't best friends we knew each other well, grew up ski racing when we were younger, and always enjoyed a good laugh together when we had time to catch up.

Hearing and reading about his death brought on many emotions I hadn't felt in a long time. It also made me contemplate my own life, about what I had been doing over the last few years and where I would like to see my life go in the future.

So, inspired by the life and legend that is Peter Maxwell, I decided to embark on my own business venture and applied for an entertainment business license. And thus was the birth of Wicked Honey Films and Video Productions. It's funny how these cycles work: Montana and the world lose an amazing man and I become inspired to start my own business.

Although I am a bit nervous about this whole business thing (I'm learning so much every day that it feels like college all over again) I am incredibly excited to work with and help local businesses in Bozeman and other parts of Montana promote their services, continue working on my YouTube Channel and much more.

Thanks for reading; and until next time, have a marvelous day and stay tuned for lots more Wicked Honey Film action and entertainment.

Au revoir!

Goals
$0 of $9 per Film
This seems like a good goal to start with, as far as a Patreon account goes.  I would really like to update and upgrade much of my filming equipment.  I also took the plunge and bought a new, well, pre-owned, car to help me get better gas milage when I travel to go ski, bike, camp and film and such.  Any sort of amount will also help me pay off my student loans (I have a B.A. in English Literature from MSU); as well as credit card debt and such.  I guess like this says, this is only a "goal," any amount will help and I would be honored and humbled to receive support and patronage.
