S2 / EP5: TIM POGUE

Tim Pogue is a visionary in the world of action sports, specifically the world of snow.  When this 10 year non-alum of University of Minnesota, he also happened to be a sponsored windsurfer, moved west is his VW bus, the last place anyone would expect him to land was taking classes at Harvard or on Wall Street. Tim’s life has been the one of dreams for the action sports marketer turned executive and he maps out his long strange trip on the podcast.
