Explorer | HOST | PRODUCER | WRITER | PHOTOGRAPHER | SPEAKER
If you want to know what it's like to climb Kilimanjaro, paraglide with a hawk (a.k.a. "parahawk"), ice climb while simultaneously shooting a PBS show, or SCUBA dive cage-free with bull sharks, Rachel's the woman to ask. She likes the stuff that makes palms sweaty and brains explode with inspiration.
As an EMMY-Nominated On-Camera Host, Producer, Camera Operator, Writer, and Photographer, Rachel has traveled all seven continents, lived in three countries and journeyed through nearly 70 nations. Rachel loves dropping herself into faraway lands to relate their stories to outsiders. In fact, she does such a good job of it that she was recently named an Explorers Club "Fellow" alongside greats like Buzz Aldrin, Sir Edmund Hillary, and Elon Musk.
Rachel has had countless global adventures, ranging from TV hosting for Travel Channel's Epic Lists and HLN's Vacation Chasers, to digital hosting for TIME, Inc. and Tastemade, and from brand influencing for BMW and Chase Bank, to producing shows like Ice Road Truckers and Ax Men. Beyond the screen, Rachel writes articles and shoots photography for magazines like AFAR and Forbes, and shares further global inspiration through Speaking, Keynote Addresses, and Conference Workshops.
Rachel has worked in every stage of media production, from development and pre-pro to field and post, and is skilled with varied editing systems, digital cameras and gear — drones included! Her audience spans over 300,000 adventurous souls around the world. And, as a result of her extensive travel experience, Rachel has been a featured expert for Travel + Leisure, Forbes, Marie Claire Magazine, Verizon, and many more.
Rachel is tough and thinks quickly on her feet. She manages severe weather, high speeds, squat toilets and creepy-crawly foods. Entertaining and authentic, her work connects with a wide variety of demographics.
So, sit back, relax, and let Rachel bring the world to you!
