As a serial entrepreneur founding six companies in the lifestyle and fashion spaces, Steve Dubbeldam has always enjoyed building community around brands that matter. After co-founding Darling Media with his wife, Sarah, he saw a need for elevating the conversation around men and character development. Out of this passion came Wilderness Collective, an adventure touring company that produces films and publishes a print magazine devoted to the idea that “wilderness makes you better.” He has partnered with brands such as Honda, Ford, Lululemon, UGG, and more. He lives with his wife and son, Judah, in Los Angeles.
Wilderness Collective guides trip-of-a-lifetime adventure experiences, produces films and creates a printed magazine all with the intention of inspiring character development through exploration. They believe that adventure provides a great chance for people to find balance in life and opportunities to grow, with the belief that Wilderness makes you better.
