DRIVEN

My swim from Santa Cruz Island to the California mainland, which set a new Santa Barbara Channel record, was featured in the documentary film DRIVEN. The film portrays three swimmers who attempted Santa Barbara Channel swims in 2012, and contrasts their different experiences, motivations, and personalities. The film premiered in Carpinteria, California on October 19, 2013, and showed at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival and San Luis Obispo Film Festival in early 2014.
