I'm the first person in history to dive to the bottom of all five of the world's oceans, as well as climb the Seven Summits and ski to both poles. Ask me anything!
I’ve long had a passion for exploration and after spending over twenty years intensively mountain climbing, I was able to scale the "Seven Summits" as well as ski to both the North and South Poles. In 2003 I retired from the US Navy Reserve after 20 years and had developed a strong affinity for the ocean. Fortunately, I had become financially successful investing in industrial private equity and was looking for a difficult challenge that required a lot of unique resources. I happened upon an important milestone humankind had not yet accomplished: going to the bottom of all five of the world's oceans -- in 2014 we had only been to the bottom of one! After a five-year intensive effort, my team was able to precisely locate, map, and then get me down to the bottom of all five. We have continued our explorations in 2020 with dives in the Mediterranean and Red Seas and are headed back to the Pacific for more diving in the Mariana Trench. Ask me anything at all.
Thank you to everyone for joining and asking your questions!
