Born and raised in Colorado, Stephen Burns has lived in the mountains his whole life. After finding inspiration at his first Mountainfilm as a teenager, he became a regular at the festival for many years—until one year, he never left. Stephen has volunteered for the festival for a handful of years and worked as the stage manager of the Palm Theatre. He is now a presenter for Mountainfilm on Tour. If you don’t see him sipping on coffee on a bench in town, he's most likely snowboarding, running the local trails or in the desert climbing anything and everything.
