As a mountain athlete and social entrepreneur, Mike's work is inspired by the human spirit and our capacity to endure and improve. His passions for adventure, social justice, and storytelling have brought him around the globe, from the highest mountains in the Himalaya, to the most remote villages in Africa and Latin America. He's led dozens of high-altitude climbing expeditions, including two on Mt. Everest, and is the creator and co-host of Beat Monday on Outside TV, an adventure travel show designed to reimagine the weekend. Mike is cofounder of Summits Education, an organization that operates a network of 41 primary schools in Haiti's Central Plateau serving nearly 10,000 students. When not in Haiti, or in the mountains, Mike and his wife spend much of their time in Kenya where they run Flying Kites, a leadership academy for orphaned and critically poor children.
