In this interview, Wayne recounts his experiences exploring New Guinea, dying in the Amazon and the challenges of working in the South Pole.

Wayne White is a throw back to the golden age of exploration. Reminiscent of Sir Richard Burton, his solo expeditions using only local support include travels through the jungles and swamps of New Guinea, the Amazon and Africa. His latest adventure was as the Winter Manager of the Amundsen-Scott South Pole research station.

Wayne is US Marine veteran and holds a BA in geography and an MPH in environmental health science from Tulane’s school of Public Health and Tropical Medicine. He has worked in remote assignments all over the globe as a Defense Department contractor.
