7 Summits Mountaineer

During the 9 year adventure to the top of the tallest mountain on every continent, including Everest, he survived avalanches, pulmonary edema, tribal warfare, and a whole lot of Clif bars.

Global Adventurer

His travels have taken him to 67 countries and every continent. He competes in international kitesurfing events, has been struck by lighting, attacked by a 5-foot iguana, and he once did the hokey-pokey in the eye of a hurricane. He’s been swimming with Hammerhead, Great White, and Whale sharks. He was even trapped in the Indonesian jungle between warring tribes and the world’s largest goldmine. 

Speaker, Coach, & Instructor

In keynote speeches, virtual presentations, and online courses, John's integrates outdoor adventure stories and proven peak-performance principles that have influenced nearly 1 million live audience members and 10 million online viewers. Additionally, he's been featured on 60 Minutes and media across the globe.


No, he's not sponsored and didn't inherit a trust fund, rather, he's a business builder, investor, and web marketer. He currently operates from Henderson, Nevada, USA, in order to be close to family (and great access to climbing!)
