Medical Doctor, Glenn SIngleman began exploring the transformative power of an active adventure lifestyle in the 80’s.
As a professional expeditioner and documentary film-maker, he’s been part of many groundbreakings, record-setting projects.
The first BASEClimb expedition to climb and BASEjump The Great Trango Tower in the Karakorum Himalaya of Pakistan in 1992 and the resulting documentary film inspired tens of thousands to take up adventure, including Glenn’s wife Heather.
Together Glenn and Heather have built an adventure tradition, pursuing new goals and bold challenges against the backdrop of awe-inspiring wilderness.
“Ultimately it’s an adventure that advances our understanding of fear, the performance process, ourselves and each other. It’s our passion, and something we love to share with other people” says Glenn.
