Literally, if Indiana Jones and Martha Stewart had a baby, the result would be Captain Sophie Hollingsworth.

Sophie is an adventure cooking pro and is the perfect person to help you raise your game while eating ion the wilderness. Sophie is also a world-renowned speaker and highly regarded environmental thought leader having taken the stage to speak to an array of audiences from the United Nations to influential corporates.
On a mission to be a force multiplier, Sophie is helping purpose-driven companies, individuals, and organizations catalyze and leverage change to drive improved results and build a more sustainable world.
Sophie’s enthusiasm for expeditions off the beaten track has led her to undertake far-flung adventures most would deem too inhospitable; including everything from descending uncharted rivers in Madagascar, desert transect treks in Namibia, living with indigenous communities in the Republic of Vanuatu conducting ethnographic research, to sailing across the Pacific Ocean.
Hollingsworth’s work has been featured by the National Geographic and the United Nations.
She is a Fulbright Scholar with a background in Environmental Science and Health Security from NYU, Harvard Kennedy School, and the University of Sydney. Sophie is a Fellow of The Explorers Club and the first New Explorer Awardee. When not exploring (or during a global pandemic) Sophie lives in Sydney, Australia.
