About Your Facilitators

Why are you teaching at RAD Summit?

“I need a break from technology. I’ve been getting a little taste of life outside of the computer with improv and I want to share it with all of you!” - Julianna

Julianna told me about this amazing opportunity to combine by favorite things: the outdoors, improv, and creativity.  How could I say no?!” - Alissa

What’s your craziest camping or outdoor experience?

“One of my favorite camping experiences, which ends up happening quite a bit, is when I arrive at my campsite in the dark, set up the tent and go to sleep. Then when I wake up in the morning and all the scenery around me is a magnificent surprise! I’ve woken up next to so many spectacular views I had no idea were there! I’ve also thought I heard wild animals trying to get in the tent, but in the morning realized I had pitch my tent  right next to the previous camper’s pile of dog food and a neighbor doggo had come to snack in the night.” - Julianna

“Oh, man.  So many...but I would have to say the time I went climbing in Cuba. I was leading a route and put my hand in a pocket with a scorpion. I yelled to my belayer to “take”, but she was fending off goats with a stick that we’re trying to eat our lunch. We survived, but not after getting hundreds of mosquito bites. I had to wear my rain jacket the rest of the trip because people thought I had a disease. It was still so worth it!” - Alissa
