Majka Burhardt Biography:

Majka Burhardt has 15 years of experience producing multi-stage international ventures focused on current issues of cultural and global significance. She is the author of books Coffee Story: Ethiopia and Vertical Ethiopia, and Executive Producer of the 2010 film, Waypoint Namibia and the forthcoming Lost Mountain. Majka champions “Additive Adventure”—when adventure goes beyond exploration to cultural and environmental connections that create a larger conversation of singular and collective human meaning.
