As a filmmaker, I live to inspire and to be inspired, but meeting Grant and Shawna Korgan has turned into that amazing “once in a life-time” experience. I am amazed by what Grant and the South Pole team accomplished, but I am equally as inspired by Grant and Shawna’s unwavering love and commitment not only to each other, but by their ability to turn obstacles into opportunities through their positive outlook on life.
