My name is Oswald Rodrigo Pereira. I’m Polish, but also Portuguese, although born in Belgium. I studied law, but found my vocation as a TV journalist. The search for most interesting human stories and inspiring achievements had led me to places I never thought I would land – to the highest mountains on Earth.
I have been climbing and filming in them since 2018. It was in February 2018 that I worked as a reporter from the Polish national K2 winter expedition. Later, I participated in three expeditions as part of the Artur Hajzer Polish Winter Himalaism program: Nanda Devi East, Lhotse and Batura Sar. In Winter 2020/21 I witnessed the triumph and tragedy on K2. In the summer of 2021, I returned with my camera to work on the second-highest mountain in the world. I climbed to Camp 3 (7300 m). I also summited Broad Peak without supplementary oxygen.
When I’m not in the high mountains, I run ultramarathons, climb, read or … take care of dogs in a shelter in Warsaw.
