Mad To Live is a brand founded by me, Sophie Everard, rooted in experiencing how empowering a life immersed in adventure, travel, surf, outdoor sports & creative play are, mentally and physically, and by going at life full of energy and fire, fuelled by the bonds of meaningful female friendships.
Mad To Live comprises the digital platform where content is centred around the nucleus of promoting a positive, modern message of female empowerment with original content. Sophie has worked with leading brands on meaningful content creation including The North Face, Chanel, Kayak, Nike, Roxy, Swiss Tourism, Visit California, Vita Coco and more. My love of writing and the creativity associated with it has seen her contribute to international titles including I-D, Grazia, Cooler & Surf Girl, and published book on snowboarding (Snowboarding: skills, training & Techniques) through Crowood Press.
