meet our

Team Olsen is what my parents used to call our family unit. My brother, mom, dad and I, traveling the world and experiencing life together. This team is an extension of my family. Brothers and sisters from all over the world, sharing life, love, laughs, smiles, and experiences together. I want everyone to be happy, living their best lives. The best way I know how to help with this is through adventure and getting out of our comfort zones, doing something that exhilarates us. Whatever that may be for you, it’s out there and waiting for you to find it. Maybe you already have, but there is always more to explore, see and do. It’s limitless, an endless search. This team is a collection of characters, ones I’ve gotten to know along the way. These people embody the essence of Olsen Adventures, exuding kindness, a zest for life, compassion, passion and forever striving to be their best selves. It’s not just about being physically talented or an influencer, what’s most important is the way they make people feel. Down to earth, friendly, and talented with an electric personality.
