About Alex Harris

Alex Harris is an Xtreme outdoor fanatic and world renowned athlete whose interests are as varied as they are unique. He has been climbing mountains for over two decades and has led more than 20 expeditions to some of the furthest corners of the planet. In 1996 Alex resigned from a career in sales and followed his passion for exploration. Within the year he led his first expedition to Mount Everest, and from this early venture he has climbed the seven summits, he has climbed the highest mountains on all seven continents and has led expeditions to both the North and the South side of Mount Everest.

On the 17th of January 2008, Alex became the first African to walk unsupported to the South Pole, a journey that took 65 days and covered almost 1,200km. We can confirm he still has all his toes!

We are privileged to have Alex as one of the Co-Founders of FoodFundies, and his passion for the outdoors and outdoor living brings an unprecedented level of enthusiasm and perfection to our business.
