Outdoor Adventurer, Filmmaker, Singer-Songwriter
He remains the only producer in the history of television to produce an internationally broadcast series entirely written, videotaped and hosted alone. Les Stroud with Survivorman has gone on to become the highest rated show in the history of both OLN Canada and the Science Channel US and quickly became one of the most popular shows on the Discovery Channel.
He spent a week surviving alone without food, water, equipment or camera crew. He single-handedly created, produced, wrote, filmed, hosted, edited and composed the theme music for these first two original, one-hour pilots for what would eventually become the Survivorman series.
Best known as star of the three time Gemini nominated hit TV series Survivorman (OLN Canada, The Science Channel US, Discovery Channel International), Les Stroud continues to forge new pathways as a prolific, creative force.
Great video about building a low impact life for himself
