Boise has interviewed many celebrities and has covered numerous environmental events including the premiere of Leonardo DiCaprio's The 11th Hour and the 2007 Environmental Media Awards presented by E! Boise is no stranger to the green space. Raised in Upstate NY, he learned the importance of sustainability at an early age through parents who encouraged an environmentally-minded lifestyle. In his early years, Boise worked as a leader for AmeriCan Adventures, driving foreigners across the US while camping, visiting and teaching about the country's national parks and resources. Following his adventures, Boise spent 7 years in commercial work, booking a total of 71 television spots for many major brands and advertisers. Boise currently lives in Venice, California where he and his wife practice a sustainable lifestyle and are currently developing an eco-oasis in Kansas that they hope to use as a tool to teach others about the importance of sustainability.
