Founder/Editor Billy Brown


Site founder Billy Brown (aka Billy-onaire, aka El Golden Diablo) has a hard time standing still. A few years ago he combined his passion for the active lifestyle with his love of toys and made a career out of it as a journalist specializing in outdoor sports and adventure travel.  An avid runner, climber, crossfitter and snowboarder, he has tested gear around the world, from canyon running in Jordan to ice climbing in Chamonix. He writes for Outside Magazine, Men’s Health, Men’s Journal,  Wired, and Backpacker, and whoever else can afford him.
