Jacob Seigel-Boettner



On October 15, 1987, newborn Jacob came home from the hospital in a bike trailer. It was love at first ride. He grew up in the saddle, leading youth bike trips with his family everywhere from British Columbia to Italy to Rwanda. In 2002, Jacob, his family, and several friends from Santa Barbara Middle School embarked on a four month trek across the United States in the footsteps of Lewis and Clark. They called themselves the Corps of ReDiscovery. Jacob's passion for two wheels is equaled by his passion for storytelling and social justice. While earning his BA in Peace and Conflict Studies at UC Berkeley, Jacob produced short films in Rwanda and Bosnia- Herzegovina that dealt with issues of sustainable development and national identity politics. With My Own Two Wheels is the senior thesis that he never got a chance to "write."
