Interview: Craig Abell Champion
E44 – Meet Craig Abell Champion, an amazing photographer, writer, director, multimedia and design artist, and a wonderfully kind soul. He is a friend of Julianne’s and tells us inside stories of life in the art, music, skateboard, and snowboard scene of the 90’s, sharing stories with Weens about Smashing Pumpkins and Chicago musicians, his movie Cornland, and his work with Burton snowboards. Craig’s photography and design work with Girl Skateboards speaks for itself, earning much press in the skate industry. He is also an open book when it comes to talking about mental illness and his diagnosis with bipolar disorder and mixed mania depression. Hear his description of ECT, electroconvulsive therapy, as a life saving treatment for his treatment resistant and quick cycling bipolar. This fun, creative, fascinating friend is an advocate for shedding light on mental illness and hopes that people continually talk about it and seek their optimal treatment. We love Craig’s transparency and positivity and hope you do too!
