Born in Chicago and raised in the Bay Area, we grew up playing make believe in the Berkeley hills, making swords in the woodshop, designing a lego metropolis, training as a falconer’s apprentice, exploring the Sierra Nevada Mountains and spending as much time in our imaginations as possible. Despite having both graduated college and embarking on our individual definitions of ‘real life’ we still seek out adventures whenever possible from the playful to the extreme.
Wiley Rogers - 26, Libra - New Orleans, food-justice, filmmaker, strong like bull, the outdoors, imagination
For the past few years Wiley has been harvesting sour grass in the alleys of New Orleans in pursuit of Gremeneus Sordonas what he calls ‘the holy grail of edible botany’. He knows each gutter cat by name, and can recite Tortilla Flats backwards. He also cooks a mean creme brûlée.
Cooper Rogers - 23, Aries - designer, new york, architecture, bicycles, woodworking
Cooper Rogers has spent the past year living in a warehouse beneath the Long Island Expressway in Queens, NY. There he tends to split his time between building bonsai tree forts and writing his autobiography (which he began in the fifth grade). He has never gotten angry and loves the internet.
