A Word From KrisAnnapurna

  • Why Author Chose This Career: As a writer for ExplorersWeb, I feel myself a very lucky person. I love this job and the team. I feel that I can be creative when suggesting topics and writing. All my colleagues are supportive and never cut my wings. My passion is writing about alpinism, climbing and mountaineering. I spend more than eight hours per day dedicating myself to it.
  • How Author Began Career: I started to be interested in mountaineering communication thanks to my friend, Sebastian Alvaro, who for more than 30 years was the director and creator of Al Filo de Lo Imposible, the acclaimed documentary series about the best era of Spanish alpinism. Through him, I met a lot of alpinists and learned their stories and careers. I started to run a Twitter account dedicated to mountaineering.
  • Personal Interests: Sports history in general, fencing (epee), reading, dogs and animals in general, trekking, painting, music, drawing. When younger: sprinter (100m)
