Big Cedar Media - With his grant-winning startup, Idaho veteran tells inspiring stories via video, nature

April 21, 2018View for printing

A common misconception about Trailhead is that we're an incubator for tech startups. While we have some of those, our 350 members come from all sides of entrepreneurialism. Forty-five percent work in some form of consulting. Another 11 percent work in advertising and marketing. Many or our members are sole proprietors, including Seth Dahl, who recently gave the Trailhead community reason to celebrate.

Seth, 35, is a longtime guide on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River and a veteran of the Iraq War. Since moving from Montana to Boise a little more than two years ago, Seth channeled his love of the outdoors into Big Cedar Media, a one-man video production company. He's tackled all kinds of products, but most, in some way or another, center on telling stories that combine inspiring people doing interesting things in nature's splendor.

He cuts a mean video, and his subjects are amazing. His current video project will feature a kayaking trio that includes a vet who lost both legs fighting in Afghanistan, an Iraq War vet who's coping with combat stress and their blind friend. Together, they navigate rivers. They bond. They heal.
