Discovery Networks

Climb to the tops of windmills and sail the open seas on TV.

In 2009 I was approached by Discovery Networks to not only help vet certain shows and serve on their board, but also be a spokesperson and correspondent for some of their environmental programming.  

 Though I traveled quite a bit for Discovery and shot on location, I also had time for some promotional in-studio work as well.

Green advocate and fashion model Summer Rayne Okaes has found herself in some precarious situations lately. She’s dangled off the edge of a 250-foot windmill in Abilene, Texas, filmed the “Trash Vortex”—an area estimated to be twice the size of Texas full of trash and plastic in the middle of the Pacific Ocean—and inhaled deeply on a methane farm. This whirlwind tour of the world’s most amazing environmental stories is all in a day’s work for this aptly named activist (yes, that’s her real name), now a correspondent on the channel’s magazine-style show G Word.”
