As part of Justin Keena and Meredith Meehan's project "Finding Sanctuary" Justin filmed me with his VIO camera (vio-pov.com) and I threw this edit together out of the footage - check it out and wish these kids luck on their journey around the word!
We consider meeting Stebs a windfall –he is one of those amazingly kind and unselfish people who are seemingly rare in this world – and getting to hang around him for even a few hours is guaranteed to put a smile on your face. As a truly talented videographer he is able to transmit his emotions and energy through images, and they can, at times, be extremely forceful and moving. He is such an intense and thoughtful person though, that like so many artists, he can get “stuck” in his own head. It is through BMX biking that he is able to let all his rampant thoughts and feelings fall away, and allow himself to enter his sanctuary. Having to be so conscientious while he is trying a trick -many that could send him to the hospital- work both his mind and body. But it during these moments when his entire being aches, and he finally lands a gap to wallride, that he feels the rush of contentment and peace. Biking hard, for Stebs, is a sanctuary that he will take with him wherever he goes.
