Wilson (Wai-Yin) Cheung’s was born and raised in former British Hong Kong. His works and studies allow him to roam the globe. After encountering a number of pivotal moments in the wilderness, he strongly believes that there is deep wisdom in nature. The key to uncovering the wilderness is curiosity, which is essential to growth. Couch-surfer, backpacker, dreamer, kayaker, caver, mountaineer, adventurer, climber, hitchhiker, skier, surfer, traveler, photographer and writer; Wilson is all of these.
Since 2011, He worked as an international mountain guide, South Pole ski guide and expedition guide in polar region over 450 field days. The most amazing polar experience for Wilson is managing an Emperor Penguin Camp at Gould Bay, the south of Weddell sea ice, for international visitors. In each Antarctic season, he spend over 4 months in Antarctic continent and peninsular region. Antarctic almost become his home….. with his tiny tent and sleeping bag as a shelter.
Wilson studied “M.A.Transcultural European Outdoor Studies” in Europe. Cross cultural psychology is his other profession. He is interested in the relationship between culture and nature, especially in the polar region. Since 2011 he has been working as the first Asian-Hong Kong polar expedition-, ski- and mountain-guide in both the Arctic and Antarctic regions. His photographs have featured in Elizabeth Leane’s book, “South Pole – Nature and Culture”. He also has worked as an expedition leader on a number of polar scientific research projects over the years.
In his off season, he always return Hong Kong to deliver lectures and semesters about polar region, expedition behavior and cross cultural psychology in university level as well as public.
Besides his guiding jobs, he is running one non-profit making organization, Ecobus (http://ecobus.org.hk/), for reconnect the relationship between human and nature. In order to facilitate individual interaction with nature and enhance the environmental sense of belonging, Ecobus applied own eco-route-cycle philosophy, Enjoy-Care-Share during delivering a wide range of outdoor activities for community.
