David Breashears Agency Booking Profile
David Breashears was shooting his IMAX film on Mount Everest in May 1996 when a paralyzing blizzard struck, killing eight explorers. As a result, he suddenly evolved from filmmaker to rescuer and hero. With his own life in jeopardy, Breashears and his crew rescued explorers from all over the mountain, narrowly surviving themselves. Thirteen days later, his team regrouped and reached the summit, becoming the first to obtain IMAX film images from the top of the world. He has since reached the summit for the fifth time. In May 2008, Breashears’ 1996 Mount Everest saga was featured on PBS’s Frontline in Storm Over Everest, in which he returned to the summit to relive that tragic spring.
David Breashears’ courage, skill, and determined quick thinking in the face of a near-death experience are a testament to the true definitions of heroism and survival. He recounts not only surviving the savagery of Mount Everest, but also persevering and conquering the world’s highest peak. Please contact SME today to Book Keynote Speaker David Breashears.
