Split/Life Collective : the balanCe of movement and creation.

We are a Lifestyle.

Growing up, we are all given choices, and as we mature we feel more and more pressure to make the right choices. To choose a direction. To follow a career path. To make money and pay the bills. But who says we have to make that choice? What if our choices were many and our lives balanced, happy, AND successful?

The creation of Split/Life comes from a bit of a selfish place. My entire life I have lived two separate lives, conflicted and split from each-other. The loud extreme professional athlete vs. the quiet, focused artist.  Never have I felt comfortable being able to merge these two worlds. However in all my travels I have discovered there are many people who feel this conflict, and I decided we deserve to come together. I wanted to feel like I truly belonged somewhere, among like-minded people. A collection of unconventional humans all with similar views of the world and how we can live in it, yet all so incredibly unique and different from one another.  The best advice I've ever received is:  "Sometimes you have to create what you want to be a part of". And so, Split/Life Collective was born.

Split/Life celebrates individuals who beautifully balance their "doing" with their "making".  Whether that be in the form of photography, fine art, craftsmanship, music, food, or design, Split/Life not only wants to showcase these individuals, but inspire others to join the collective, and live their own Split/Life to the fullest.
