Over the last two decades, Michael Brown has climbed to the top of two of the world’s most demanding professions. As a world-class mountaineer, he has summited Mount Everest five times. As a three-time Emmy award-winning filmmaker, he has made over fifty expeditions to all seven continents, all with cameras rolling. Michael has made a habit of going to the world’s harshest, most dangerous environments – the South Pole, the North Face of the Eiger, and 1,500 feet underground in caves – and always comes back with incredible footage and compelling stories. Outside Magazine describes the cerebral filmmaker as a “swashbuckling librarian”, and Men’s Journal calls him “a master of gut-dropping action.” As Founder of the Outside Adventure Film School, Michael practices another of his favorite pursuits: teaching.
