Happy to announce the birth of my daughter, Piper Tilley Bisharat, on April 7, 2016!
Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been managing a freelance writing career while raising a daughter, and that has been a really incredible addition to my life. What’s so amazing is how anytime I try to multi-task, or feel overwhelmed by work, I have this incredible being to remind me to slow down and take things one step at a time. You have to be fully present with a baby. I feel really blessed to have this daily reminder to live a life from a place of love and compassion.
Kyle Dempster and Scott Adamson went missing in Pakistan. What happened next back at home was unprecedented, and extraordinary.

“In researching 2016’s dramatic rise in BASE jumping deaths, I was almost unable to keep up with the pace with which people were dying.”

This wingsuit pilot flew past death once for himself. Then he did it three more times for the sick GoPro footy.

I spoke to Dean days before he died. I hadn’t spoken to him in awhile and it was a great conversation to check in with one of the most visionary mountain athletes of his generation.
Proxy flying is just one of the more dangerous things you can do … Sad to see both Dean and Grahmbo go.

Here are three new posts on the Urban Outfitters blog. It’s interesting talking to these guys … Living in your van and “dirtbag glamour” is very in vogue right now … As someone who once lived in a Nissan Sentra and a child’s tent from Walmart, it’s a bit interesting to see this kind of thing promoted on this level. Anyway … both nice guys, and it was great to meet them on the phone

My latest piece for National Geographic covered the record-setting balloon flight across the Pacific Ocean last week.
The Two Eagles helium-filled balloon has landed safely some four miles off the coast of the Baja Peninsula, Mexico, becoming the second vessel of its kind to successfully cross the Pacific Ocean.
In doing so, pilots Troy Bradley, of Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Leonid Tiukhtyae of Moscow, Russia, have also achieved unofficial world records for distance traveled and duration aloft in a gas-filled balloon.
