Adventurer, Explorer & ZOZI Elite Guru

When he was eight years old, Bear vowed to climb Mt. Everest – a dream he and his father nurtured together. When he turned 23, he achieved his goal, becoming one of the world’s youngest people to summit Everest. The year before, Bear became the youngest Briton to climb the iconic Mount Ama Dablam in the Himalayas, a peak once described by Sir Edmund Hillary as ‘unclimbable’.

Today, Bear is a global phenomenon and worldwide brand. His career - which has been defined by his thirst for incredible adventures including surviving a near fatal parachuting accident in Africa, wading death-defying rapids, and utilizing a sheep carcass as a sleeping bag - has been nothing short of inspiring.

Bear designed and introduced a full range of survival clothing, knives, camping, backpacks, boats and paddleboards. He formerly hosted Discovery Network's "Man vs. Wild," a show that continues to reach 1.2 billion people around the world (and went on to become the No. 1 cable show in America), and currently hosts NBC’s newest reality survivor TV show “Get Out Alive.”
