Luke Smithwick has been a mountain guide for over twenty years, leading people on exploratory expeditions in Nepal, Alaska and the Rocky Mountains. In 2012, Luke founded Himalaya Alpine Guides (himalaya-alpine.com), a brand focused on the unexplored, unclimbed and unskied terrain globally. In November 2018 Luke completed his 68th Himalayan expedition. Today on the show, I ask Luke how he has changed as a person over the course of his career.
