Amir Fishman – When You Say “Yes!”
Amir has had the opportunity to experience some pretty crazy, movie-like events. Things where by all account and logic, he should have lost a kidney, or been surrounded by a group of rabid wolverines. Instead, he has a set of incredible memories and stories to share. Join Amir as he shares his often hilarious tales of adventure, mishap and successes, brought on because he has a never-ending drive to say “Yes!”
Amir Fishman was once on the path to becoming a medical doctor. Instead, he decided he’d prefer to white water canoe into the Arctic Ocean, sleep on the side of 2000-foot cliffs in Mexico, and bike through the mountains of Japan. He is a professional adventurer and the owner of Overhang Adventures. He lives and breathes the outdoors. When he’s not leading trips or teaching courses, you can most likely find him hanging off some cliff, paddling down a river, or playing guitar by a campfire.
