Jen HudakEscapod Co-Founder

 

Hey! Thanks for being here! I'm Jen Hudak, Escapod co-founder and copy master! Like the rest of the team, I wear a lot of hats. Though my time spent in the shop during the early days is now behind us, I continue to contribute through written-word, social media & business development.

Prior to my work at Escapod, I was a professional halfpipe skier. I have two X-Games gold medals and two World Championship Titles to my name. But, if my face looks familiar, it may be because you saw me race to the finals in Season 30 of CBS' The Amazing Race! To put things lightly, I LOVE TRAVEL & ADVENTURE! Chris & I weren't sure where Escapod would lead when we built the first prototype, we just needed a lightweight, rugged teardrop trailer that would be ready to go when we were. Now we get to experience the joy of making other people's dreams come true. Packed within these teardrop trailer walls is infinite potential for your wildest adventures! Have fun!
