Majka Burhardt has a passion for creating unusual connections. As an author, professional climber, filmmaker, and entrepreneur, Majka has spent two decades exploring the globe—usually by hand and foot—and her stories of challenge, humanity, and the fine line between extreme and acceptable risk inspire and challange audiences around the world.
Majka is the author of Coffee Story: Ethiopia and Vertical Ethiopia: Climbing Toward Possibility in the Horn of Africa, Executive Producer of the 2010 film, Waypoint Namibia and Producer of the Lost Mountain project and forthcoming film about Mozambique. She champions “Additive Adventure”—when adventure goes beyond exploration to cultural and environmental connections that create a larger conversation of singular and collective human meaning. Curious how to say her name? It’s “My-ka.”
