#VWars is streaming right now on @netflix -this is a glimpse into the last 2 years of my life with this story and now it’s happening outside our doorsteps! I’ve NEVER been more proud to play an epidemiologist on #VWars as I am right now. These scientists spend their lives and careers trying to keep us safe so that we may live full, healthy and happy lives. I solute you all and thank you for your tireless efforts to help us and our families. Scientists ROCK. Let’s please listen to them. With immense gratitude and appreciation, Ian/Dr. Swann PS If you’re stuck in like the rest of us, find your country below and click on YOUR NETFLIX link! Sign up if you haven’t and stream VWARS. I cannot believe this is happening to the world! I spent almost 2 years of my life making this exact story but with vampires! Whoa... @nxonnetflix Badasses @netflixsg Singapore @netflicanz Australia&New Zealand @netflixbrasil Brasil @netflixuk UK&Ireland @netflixlat Latinoamérica @netflixde Germany @netflixca Canada @netflixfr France @netflixit Italy @netflixes España @netflix_in India @netflixnordic Nordic @netflixgr Greece @netflixjp Japan @netflixmena Middle East & North Africa
Could #VWars be ANY MORE FRICKING TIMELY IF WE TRIED?! This is the scene where you meet my character in #VWars Scene 1 for Dr. Swann. When we were writing this scene, we knew we had a show about a virus that is spreading. SO. Right out of the gate we have to know that my character is a caring, kind and a well-respected Dr. in the field of infectious disease. Little did we know that the stock market was going to plunge and that entire countries would be quarantined. I hate what’s happening in our world right now but I’m so grateful to have access to the greatest epidemiologists in the world and I can’t wait to collaborate with you all telling this story in VWars. If you haven’t seen it, stream it NOW TONIGHT on @netflix If you’ve started the show but haven’t finished- please finish it TODAY! Please share this and SPREAD the word. We are on to something and yes, this shit is scary. I have never been on a television show or in the film that had so much social relevance and timeliness in the world. Thanks for watching! Who wants MORE! Xo Ian

This DOES absolutely SUCK. I truly hope that we get a hold on the flu and corona virus soon. Our souls, our economies, our families and our medical systems can’t take it. Life is hard enough out there. Please please please be courteous to us all. Wash your hands often, don’t sneeze, cough and hack all over public areas... That’s not cool! I’m literally watching people sneeze into their hands and wipe it on their pants and the arm rest and then reach out to me and ask for a picture! Who does that!? I’m mean I love you all but come on 😌We’re all in this together! There are older people, people with compromised immune systems and of course those of us that have babies that are so susceptible. Help protect them. Please and as always THANK YOU! Your friend, Ian

That smile... All I had to do was ask “Joe can you give your dad a smile?” This is what I got. They hear us. They understand us. Animals know so much more than we give them credit for. They are truly amazing. Kids and animals absorb ALL that we put out. What kind of energy are you putting out there? I try daily, even under incredible stress to smile and put out positive energy. It goes a long way I believe... No filter

Dear Kobe, I wish that this letter had gotten to you while you were still on this earth with us. I’m quite sure that we would’ve been friends. While we only got to shake hands a half dozen times over the last 20 years, there was never a moment that I walked away from you not feeling inspired. You were 19 and I was 18 when we first met. I remember thinking “Whoa, this guy is only four months older than me. I better get on it! I heard about an interview that you did that prompted me write this. When asked how you explain the complexity of death to your kids you simply said that you told them or to the effect of “That when a person dies they become made of stars.” Monday morning after your horrible crash, my little 2.5 yr old giggling daughter picked THIS shirt out of all of her shirts to wear.This tiny little girl in this tiny little shirt just rocked me and tears just streamed from my eyes. While no man is perfect & I’m not pretending to know your personal life, I respectfully only know the hardworking man who inspired millions and millions of us. A man that was proud of his family and cherished them. Your passion to invest in youth is what always struck me as such a powerful, smart & courageous element of your life. A gift to the world.To us all. None of us can comprehend the unimaginable pain & sadness that your beautiful wife and family are experiencing right now. This has hit and rocked our households in a way that I could have never thought. The sudden & violent loss of such an inspiring athlete, business man, philanthropist, husband and father, his young child and others has shaken us to our cores.This terrible event has not slapped us all in the face, but rather punched us so very hard in the gut. A major reality that we forget in our busy and noisy lives:That life is EXTREMELY fragile and can be taken away at any moment.It is our duty to love those around us and leave this planet better than when we came into it. We aim to send nothing but the most powerful

Family harvest day, one of many... With our little helper. Bonding while picking our greens and watching our little girl’s growing connection with the beautiful dark soil in her tiny hands as a living breathing organism that gives life to her breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner is beyond special. And necessary. We need the world as a whole, not just our kids to know how to nourish ourselves and our planet’s soil. The soil is our biggest asset and yet MOST of the world’s food producers have no clue how their soil even works. This should scare you and them. You can create healthy soil and can grow food on a windowsill in New York City, Los Angeles or a backyard farm in Ohio. BUT I offer you this with much excitement and please mark my words: when large-scale agriculture turns to regenerative agriculture and our growing food eats our carbon output every year AND eats the legacy load of carbon in the air by a process called bio sequestration aka DRAWNDOWN (read Paul Hawken) climate change will STOP. We AND our children will thrive. Its our DUTY. There simply will be no more Australian or California bush fires. No more melting ice or bleaching coral. THIS is our only hope. We have the answer and the film is coming soon- it’s called @kisstheground directed by my dear brother Josh Tickell. We hope you are as inspired as we are. Thank you

I took this photo the other day because it seemed like such a powerful message. Right now it’s more powerful than ever... In light there can be no dark. These are dark times America but together we can rise out of the ashes and into the light. Please share your light. My heart aches for those innocent lives lost, their families, their friends and their communities. Right now we need love, we need compassion and we need leadership.

#wearemaunakea is not just a hashtag. It’s a peaceful battle cry. A reminder that sacred NATIVE land belongs to NATIVE peoples. The world is watching and that destroying this fragile environment without permission and with no conscious is not acceptable. Science is important, so is community. And... #alohaalwayswins

The amount of planes over Europe, the United stares and Mexico right now... Think of the amount of fuel and carbon in our atmosphere in one day. It’s mind blowing isn’t it. It was hard for me to imagine how much pollution is up there every second of every day. I’m a part of it too... What do we do? What is the solution? We can draw this carbon down with agriculture. I promise you there is an answer. It’s time to start engaging. When our farming practices change our temperatures will go down. More information to come Who is with me?

Happy 4th of July from Paris... Celebrating freedom is such privilege when it should be a right! Thank you to all who worked for and gave their lives for our freedom and for freedom around the world. As divided as our great country is, I can only hope that we have unity today and in the days going forward. Hopefully everyone stays safe over there. Summer time holidays and drinking on those lakes, rivers and streams can get intense. Happy Independence Day!

Want a tiny break from the day or something peaceful to think about before you drift off to sleep? If your put your headphones on&really watch&listen I think you look around a bit differently today/tonight... I hope this inspires you as much as it inspired me. There are 4 videos total. This excerpt from Carl Sagan's book Pale Blue Dot (1994) was inspired by an image taken, at Sagan's suggestion, by Voyager 1 on Feb 14, 1990. From a distance of about 6 billion km, Voyager 1, which had completed its primary mission and was leaving the Solar System, was commanded by NASA to turn its camera around and take one last photo of Earth across a great expanse of space, at the request of Carl Sagan. The accompanying words, written 27 yrs ago are still relevant today.

@5ringsbarbell pushing me to the limit to be the strongest and best version of me-thanks brother this partnership means the world to me. Time to kick some major ass. Only some months of post production left on #vwars as @drlutherswannofficial then I’ll get it out the door and onto @netflix for you to see. Hopefully you like it. Lots to do in the ocean space. Too much plastic and degradation. Plastics stand to wipe us out. BUT with DRAWDOWN in agriculture and enough consumer, legislative and corporate behavioral changes we can do this. There are no problems, only solutions. Going to continue talking with amazing game-changing people on our podcast @gregstoneocean . I feel like to get all of this done and be a strong good dad I needed to become a warrior. So, that’s what I’m doing. Time is slipping and we haven’t got much before the tipping point tips the wrong way. Just remember, especially if you have kids you’re leaving this world to... Nature doesn’t need us: WE NEED NATURE. I ask. I beg for ALL of us to... Be strong. Be smart. Be good to the world that is good to you. Love, Ian

Being a father... It’s the greatest gift life can give you and greatest thing I’ve ever done. I’m so thankful to be on this journey and so thankful for you my love, @nikkireed for making me a proud papa. Kid, you love your family, music, nature, all animals and airplanes... This is a great start and I can’t wait to explore this earth and all it’s wonders with you. Happy Father’s Day guys- I hope you feel blessed each day to get out of bed to lay track for their futures. All parents are rockstars (Moms are beyond rockstars and the backbones of society) and may we put our best foot forward and nurture their little brains, souls and hearts. After all, its good parenting that will make a better world. Make no mistake about it. I hope and pray you feel the same and push yourselves each day to love and nurture them to the best of your abilities. But if you don’t feel that way, it’s never too late. It’s never too late to start. Today is a great day. That love and attention will make our world a better place to live I promise you. By raising healthy, intelligent, compassionate, reverent and grateful little ones we will build the greatest generations that the world has ever seen. Good luck and thank you. Happy Father’s Day

Been hiding. Watching from the sidelines or the mountain top, I’m not really sure... I had to step away from devices taking over my life, simplify and be a good dad. The only way is to be present. Still buried in #VWars post production and building my companies. Lots to share for sure. Co-exec producing a podcast with one of the world’s leading marine scientists to start breaking the lid off of powerful and necessary stories told by powerful and necessary people. To any of the 750 unread text messages I have, my apologies to all, but spending 5 hrs per day typing or speaking into a little device is not how I can spend my life. I’ll figure it out. Thanks for your patience. Many posts coming. Ian

I’m completely blown away by you... The bright purity of your smile is infectious to us all. We’ve traveled near and far learning, exploring, tasting, laughing, loving and raising our little one. Watching you in this new role and seeing first hand the true power you possess as a mother, an artist, a businesswoman and a real trailblazing leader into the world of sustainability and art is profound. I only wish I was half as bold and together as you. Whether dancing at our wedding, swimming across the seas, cuddling one of our furry creatures, jumping on airplanes around the world, snapping beautiful photos or sitting hand and hand looking at the ocean with a beer: we do it all together. It’s been nothing short of amazing to breathe the air of the bright blue sky all over this planet with you. Thank you for spending this life with me and thank you for all you teach me.

2019... It was supposed to be the year of the Faux hawk(ish). The priorities for the year (other than being a great dad and husband of course) were/are: -New look ✅ -Raise a SHIT ton of $ for @isfofficial with the new wine tasting @omaze campaign I NEED YOUR HELP NOW! -Release #VWars (working on dates) -Kick ass with my production company @rarebirdsprods ✅ -Launch wine company @D2Dwines ✅ -Launch new spirits company with someone you know well (coming🔜 to a glass near you) -Be a decent human being (working on that) After the 3 glasses of wine wore off and the clippers ran out of battery... something hit me like a ton bricks: a little thing called “continuity” for aka #VWars reshoots! I stopped trimming... Shit. Biotin smoothies here we come- gotta grow this shit out fast... Hair growing out and gearing up for production now. So much gratitude to you all for so much support.

Happy #nationalpuppyday from me and this little guy. Puppies are amazing, they remind us to be present and happy. Unfortunately adult humans send their older pets to the shelter to be put down or adopted or put them on Craigslist to make room for puppies around the holidays... It’s not fair. If you or someone you know have done this or intend to do this please discourage them. Pets are members of our families and do NOT deserve to be abandoned or hrown out for new little ones...

A night out with these three... I love them... The Night Before Party. Such amazing conversations with such talented and influential artists/filmmakers/producers and the studio heads and finance gurus in this entertainment business that make it all possible. I’m grateful to be a part of it all. Now time for bed- this beautiful baby will wake us up in just a few hours for sure...

This is me and my dearest dearest brother @brynmooser . I trust this man with my life and he and his film Lifeboat are nominated for an Oscar. This is not Bryn’s 1st Oscar Nomination and I truly hope that the @theacademy recognizes that this film is so incredibly important and that he is and will remain one of the most influential filmmakers and game changers of our time. Congratulations my brother and to all that made this incredible film. Congratulations to ALL of the nominees and anyone that is brave and strong enough to make a film in hopes of telling a story that the world must see.

Me at 17 years old. An America Eagle campaign in the summer of 1996. This was shot in the middle of no where on famous Route 66 at an old desert cafe in the California. How different 1996 was. I read books with an insatiable thirst for philosophy, history, science and nature as shadows lengthened in the sun. What a time. People talked and talked and talked about life on the streets, in parks, in restaurants and bars. It was a special time. The time before the smartphone. I often think about those times when our focus was experiencing moments and not broadcasting every single moment of our entire lives... there was so much clarity. I miss those times...

Injustice against women happens all over the world, including the United States. We believe in change through the power of storytelling. I recently had the chance to meet Halimah Tariq, a young lawyer turned filmmaker due to her experience with ConnectHer and ISF. Halimah’s latest film, Fatima, exposes the difficult working conditions of female brickmakers in the kilns around Lahore, Pakistan. Women and girls as young as 10 are among the 4.5 million brick kiln laborers in Pakistan. Fatima won the 2018 Green IS Environmental Film Award at the Girls Impact the World Film Festival 2018 (a film festival run by ConnectHer with an annual award sponsored by the Ian Somerhalder Foundation). Submissions for GITWFF 2019 are now open and we can’t wait to see your work. If you are a high school or undergraduate student and have a passion for action and a story/cause about women’s issues then this is for you! Deadline to submit is January 20, 2019 (http://www.connecther.org/gitw/). “There are so many stories that need to be told,” says Halimah. “Don’t be afraid to take the vital first step. If you don't do that, you never fully understand what you have to offer the world.” @gitwff @connecther @isfofficial GITWFF Guidelines: http://www.connecther.org/gitw/guidelines GITWFF Green IS award info: http://www.connecther.org/gitw/gallery?tab=greenis All GITWFF awards: http://www.connecther.org/gitw/prizes

I hope I don’t come off as an ass... A woman just stopped me in the grocery store and told me that she had never seen a basket like mine.I told her that I have never NOT seen this type of basket in my grocery-shopping behavior.A few others chimed in saying that it was a very strange sight! WTF?A strange sight?I’m in a grocery store.It’s food.It got me thinking and really fired up...I hear in the news constantly, in legislative bodies debating and the public complaining out right bitching about healthcare costs, drug companies and doctors and what rising costs do to our society, our lives and our economy. I know our system isn’t great.Yet, the public poisons itself daily with bad food choices. Food is medicine and medicine is food. It’s a fact. If we want to see our healthcare system changed, be a healthier society- and it will. How does that sound? Logical right? I don’t mean to sound like a dick- or preachy but this is nuts: how is it, that grown professional people in a major American city have never seen a grocery basket full of normal&healthy foods that just all happen to be green or not processed.We’re so far down the rabbit hole of packaged and “convenient” foods that our society is paying the price&so is our future.No one in our government is helping us be healthier through education.Why would they?Sick people are GREAT for business... It’s pretty simple:If you want to look well, feel well and BE well- just eat well. Obviously excersise as well, as much as you can.Everything else will start to fall into place.My mom raised me on no money&mostly as a single parent yet, she still ate well&exercised and it shaped my life.We make excuses why we can’t find the time to take care of ourselves and we end up past the point of no return... Why is that?How is it that we can’t see that:Happy and healthy people make a happy and healthy world.It’s hard to see that through a fog of prescription drugs, energy drinks&strong sleep aids. It’s hard I know, but its time to chang

Watching a true artist and an inspiration work with her medium: recycled gold and sustainably-sourced gems. My wife’s company @bayouwithlove has teamed up with @earthandelement again and they have a HOLIDAY STORE! I only helped screw in a few hangers, these ladies set this up! 3100 Sunset Blvd Los Angeles,CA open FRIDAY-SUNDAY! It’s called #brandlovestory This place is so beautiful, the energy so clean and holistic. It is a combination of experiencing sustainable luxury by business owned and run by women and feeling good about buying. Talented. Compassionate. Smart. Artistic. Businesswomen. If you’re in LA pop over to their Holiday Shop to see it. You will feel so good. To watch you this amazing woman that I’m married to develop, design curate and inspire so many others not just in the business world but women and men to become conscious consumers. I see her up late, then in the early morning breastfeeding, running a company, running a household, fostering animals in need all the while traveling for meetings and being the most amazing mother and supportive wife to a husband shooting a television show 18 hrs per day and now editing until 3AM every night. I’ve never seen anyone so capable and inspiring. Thank you my beautiful wife for showing us all that our dreams are possible with hard work, determination with purpose. I’m in awe... Love, Your Husband

Wow, times flies. TVD hair/makeup chair just about to be snipped, shaved and “refined” back to Damon Salvatore. Day before shooting season 7 of The Vampire Diaries. Every season I would take a “self portrait” to document the change in who I was after a summer of literally flying around the world meeting so many of you while experiencing this incredible journey ... So much has changed since then. So much growth, so much experience and pushing myself to do more- I truly look forward to sharing these new things I’ve been building: Wine, nutraceuticals, new TV and ISF @isfofficial Thank you all for so much support.

I’ll never forget the feeling of helplessness watching our communities here in California burn. I’m grateful that these destructive flames have stopped due to the hard work and risk of the men and women who fought them from the land and from the air. To our FIREFIGHTERS: We are so grateful for you today and everyday. We love and respect you immensely. To all of our Police and other the 1st responders, emergency professionals and volunteers that went in to save people, homes and animals we thank you from the deepest depths of our hearts. We thank each and every one of you to the stars and back. The @losangelesfiredepartment , you are among the greatest heroes on this planet and your bravery and commitment to protecting our state, our people and our creatures is so powerful and so appreciated. Thank you @lafdfoundation for supporting them. From my family to yours, we thank you all on this day. We can only hope that all those affected by natural disasters this year and in recent years find some happiness and a hug today. Hope is all we have to move forward in these terrible moments but together as community we are strong and can share smiles. I send you all love today and applaud your strength and courage to press on. May we start to talk more seriously about where the increasing number of violent hurricanes and fires, that are destroying our homes and communities are coming from and together pave a road to a more peaceful and less destructive future. Happy Thanksgiving to all and may today not be about gluttonous consumption but gratitude for the simple things in life, the things that we need to survive: Family, friends and food. With immense gratitude, Ian Somerhalder

Just found this: A season wrap on the Vampire Diaries, maybe Season 3,4or 5 I’m not sure. I took this in the mirror of Damon’s dressing room to remember how worn down I was but smiling- That’s a nebulizer I’m sucking on-shooting pharmaceutical hydrogen peroxide into my lungs to keep from collapsing from an infection. Supplements, oxygen chambers flying around like a maniac making a TV show and trying to build companies while building @isfofficial . Be careful. Ambition can be dangerous... I’ve found this image and wanted to share it. We’ve lost amazing men and women recently who really helped change the world but their bodies perished from the pressure and abuse of running too hard and not taking care of themselves. I’m humbly searching for that balance and I wish you all luck in finding it. Meditation helps, I use transcendental mediation or TM- it’s super easy. Just remember this- we don’t actually need much to live happy lives. We, as humans firmly believe more and more and more and more “things” will make us happy. Unfortunately they don’t make us happy. Our buying patterns just fuels economies ... Our kids deserve to grow up not seeing us staring at these little glowing devices in our hands. I hide around corners and under pillows so my little one doesn’t see it... Our babies need us present to teach them and to listen to them. It’s the only way to build a loving and sustainable society. At least that’s what I think- take it or leave it;)

That’s a wrap on #VWars! Me as @drlutherswannofficial I’m so humbled by the complex abilities of the cast, crew and Producers/Network/Studio of this show. We did it. It’s in the can as they say... Now it’s time for us, as producers to bring it to life in the editing room and digital effects suite. Thank you @netflix and @idwpublishing for this incredible opportunity. We poured our hearts into this. All you have to do as an audience; is watch. Even if you don’t like it ;) I’d like another crack at a SEASON 2. There are so many places to take this story I want another shot. Let me get into the details with our amazing team to make this a hit show; but I’m going to need you to check it out to see if you jive with it. It’s so very relevant to this modern, social, digital, political and emotional landscape that we all find ourselves all navigating and traversing together. To my team: thank you all for your tireless efforts and talent. I’m humbled to lead the charge of this show into the public sphere. Every second of post production and every interview you will be there with me- the work of many hot Sudbury days to freezing Toronto nights. To our audience: I hope we can move you with grounded, nuanced performances and story with the time allotted for us to tell it. We tried. We will keep trying if you can give us the chance. There is an immense amount of TV out there- we hope you our frequency resonates with you. With immense gratitude to this group and to our audience, Ian.

Me and this @wheelsup8760 #KingAir350i sky baby/workhorse. My “air” office and the greenest and most efficient plane in the sky. When I was a little boy flying in my uncle’s Cessna I found my love of flying and my love of the sky. I always dreamed of flying around the world and now for my work, I live in the sky. Some are short flights and some long, but they are a great many in number. Mostly to see you all! I’m shooting #VWars right now and I’m so bummed that I missed hanging this week in Florida with my @wheelsup8760 and my @textronaviation family at the #nbaa18 (National Business Aviation Association) @nbaaphotos this year- I WILL make it next year. I can’t wait to see the innovation and artistry of these amazing machines. We have a hard and long road to push in the sustainability realm of aviation both on the business and commercial sides. Revolutionizing efficiency and fuels is the way of the future... it’s a MUST for our planet. I live on this thing so me and my team feel so safe and grateful to @textronaviation for building them and @wheelsup8760 for having such a huge fleet of them- giving us access to move around safely and efficiently.

Bye bye NYC. Thank you for the immense love from you fans, it’s truly humbling. Wow, I’m not sure how or why I deserve it... I’m catching a nap cuddled with my #vwarsnetflix script in the middle of emails, conference calls and texts for VWars, my soon-to-be-launching wine company, my production company, my nutraceutical company, @gogreenequipment and a global communication technology company- strategizing it all from my office in the sky- on the amazing @wheelsup8760 #KingAir350i made by my friends at @textronaviation . I’m so grateful to the @beechcraft family of engineers for designing the safest, most efficient and greenest turboprop in the world. The KingAir was green, before green was cool. That’s why so many use it. It’s American engineering at its finest and I’m proud that my partners and companies only use @wheelsup8760 & @textronaviation home to @beechcraft & @cessnacitation . Thank to all for keeping me safe and thank you #wheelsup8760 for giving us access to so many of these amazing planes with your combined reliability and safety. When I was a little boy on a bayou in Louisiana, I could have only dreamed of being this busy, this blessed and being surrounded by this much love and ingenuity in the most pivotal time in human history. Hard work, integrity, innovation and compassion is what I’m striving for. I’m trying so very hard to build successful and sustainable for-profit companies to then be able to reinvest those resources back into education to build stronger communities and build a better world for us all and our children... The future of business MUST have a triple bottom line: People. Planet. Profit. With immense gratitude to you all, Ian #textronaviation #upthewayyoufly #wheelsup8760 #kingairnation #kingair350i

Cat lovers, myself included, want the best for their feline family members. I was shocked to learn more than half of all cats don’t see the vet on a regular basis. Let’s change that! I’ve teamed up with @RoyalCaninUS for #Cat2VetDay to raise awareness about the importance of preventive veterinary care for cats. For the rest of this month, repost the video shared on @RoyalCaninUS on August 1 using #Cat2VetDay and Royal Canin will make a donation to help cats in need. #kittensofinstagram #royalcaninkittens #funwithcats #catsofinstagram #cat #kitten #catstagram #catsofinsta #catlover #ilovemycat

My quiet garage alone time with the new scripts in my wooden capsule of healing heat, light and sound. I haven’t broken down another character in 9 years... it’s very special. Very fun. I’ve come up with many ideas in here for ISF, Vampire Diaries, my businesses and my family. This thing has change my life and I’m so grateful that my dear friends at @sunlightensaunas have created such special healing equipment to make our lives and our health better. If you have any doubt of the incredible healing properties of these infrared saunas just check out what they do. It’s not just the heat but the light therapy and the sound resonance therapy. Mind blowing... They are helping people feel better and therefore act better to the world that surrounds them and that is such a cool thing.

Being a dad- it’s the best role I’ve ever gotten to play. The only one I’ve ever been good at... Happy late(ish) Father’s Day dads. I hope we can all remember that society is a direct reflection of our parenting. So, whatever we can do to step it up and really double down by investing in our kids, teaching them and being present with them; our world will be truly better. I know it’s hard out there but we can do this-I’m proud to one of you now...

At 12:11 PM PST this beautiful girl took her last breath. Quietly cancer had filled this amazing girl of mine and there was nothing any of us could do. I’ve never known a more incredible animal. A soul that spoke 1,000 languages. Kid, I will miss you and anyone that ever got to know you will miss you. Countless flights, 100nights in the airstream, driving across the country, jumping in every lake- river- stream and ocean there was, just for a splash and to be happy. Thank you for loving me like I’ve never known. I know you’re here, your energy is here with us-I saw you playing with Neech this morning. I love you kiddo. Love, Dad

Hey beautiful people! If you do anything today please take a look at this. I’m putting the link in my bio as well;) An estimated 8 million metric tons of plastic ends up in our water every year. 8 million! With all this plastic seeping into the DNA of our marine life, it’s imperative that we work together to turn this disaster around. That is why I was so excited to talk with @MarthaStewart about ISF’s mission and how together we can #ChangeTheDay. @isfofficial @marthastewart Love, Ian

No filter needed. I remember taking this image of this magical human with a tiny magical human inside. Nicole, you are the warmth of the sun, you are the light of the moon, you are the air in my breath and the ground beneath my feet. How lucky I am to witness you in your most natural and powerful state; as a mother. I’m so profoundly grateful to you for the great sacrifice, patience, will and strength to grow, nurture and push this tiny little angel into the world. You inspire me every day to learn and alongside learning from you there is no doubt in my mind that we will be the parents we’ve always dreamed of being. Happy 1st Mother’s Day honey. What a special day, like every day, to spend in the California sun with you and our cub. Love, Baby Daddy aka Ian

We did it! We did it! We did it! It’s the most magical day here in Chile at @vik_wine . This vineyard is the most holistic and inspiring place I’ve ever been. With this team of wine-making mastery, with the brilliant wine maker Cristián Vallejo- I’ve put together a special blend that I can NOT wait to share with you. A tremendous amount of trial and error, exploration and bonding over the passion, the art, the science and the love of nature and wine- I feel so proud of this wine. Labels being made as we speak, bottling, storing under the cool Chilean ground and shipping happening. Wow, what an experience... I love this so very much

Love me some @iamlilbub ! I’m excited to be coming back to CatCon. This year I'll be doing a meet and greets on Sunday, August 5th!

This human... Happy 3 years today you amazing woman. This photo of you brings me to a quiet moment of that magical day. The sun was so perfect, shining on you like the goddess you truly are. From honeymooners toasting misty Costa Rican volcanoes with Chilean Cabernet in the pool (starting promptly at 12 noon of course) to quiet mountain-side anniversary moments talking photography, philosophy and parenting... This journey is so beautiful and so inspiring. I love you to the moon and back a thousand million times. Thank you for 3 amazing years. Wow... three years married... Time truly does fly when you’re having fun. Love, Your Man

Coming to you live from my hyperbaric chamber aka my “other” office just trying to soak in some life-giving oxygen.
