Make It Happen
You don't stop playing because you grow old, you grow old because you stop playing. For me, life is about enjoying each day and going after my goals with tireless passion, and those two go hand in hand. Many people get stuck in life because they are either too scared to make a change or lack the wisdom to understand that anything can be achieved if you set your mind to it with enough drive.

There is no easy way to success, or anything worthwhile for that matter. Being very realistic, it takes a lot of hard work to achieve what I want in life. Obviously with freerunning: blood, sweat, and tears of both pain and joy have been shed. Because I've been through these experiences however, I've gained respect and knowledge about the limits of both my body and mind. I am much stronger in both these aspects because of parkour, and in that way parkour has given back to me an amazing amount to which I am eternally grateful.
With film it is much the same story, I have worked for years to hone my craft of filmmaking and editing. Lots of ideas didn't work but some of them did and have allowed me to start a career in what I love doing. As Michael Jordan said, "I've failed over, and over, and over in my life; and that is why I succeed." I truly feel at home both behind a camera and editing films. It gives me joy every time I do it. Find what you love to do, and if you can make it a career, you'll never work another day in your life.

In addition to his adeptness in Parkour, Noah is also an accomplished videographer, and has produced some of the favorite Parkour videos to come out of the U.S. Parkour community in the last couple years through his production company Snowman Films.
Noah is currently pursuing an arts degree at the University of Colorado which he plans to use to become a professional filmmaker and editor. He is also interested in movie stunts and he was recently hired as an EMT-Basic which he loves because "I can help people and directly effect people's lives for the better." Full of passion, direction, and opportunity, Noah maintains a strong focus on the Parkour community and it shows through the
influence and admiration he has in and from the national Parkour scene.
