APC welcomes back, George Kourounis a global explorer, adventurer and storm chaser to our year-end gala and AGM.

George has spent years photographing some of Mother Nature’s most elusive and dangerous phenomena. He has chased tornadoes, giant hail, dust storms, hurricanes, avalanches, volcanoes and lightning among other things. His website site contains a variety of photographs and video images of these encounters with wild weather and other forces of nature.

Based in Toronto, his efforts to document nature’s worst weather conditions have taken him all over the globe, into places most normal people are fleeing from. Whether it’s a tornado outbreak in Kansas, a monster hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico, forest fires in British Columbia, or even an erupting volcano, he’s usually in the middle of the action with his camera rolling. His efforts have been seen around the world on the Discovery Channel, National Geographic Explorer, BBC-TV, CNN and of course, his own adventure TV program Angry Planet which has been broadcast in over 100 countries. The program airs on OLN, City TV, The Travel Channel, The Weather Channel, Halogen TV & others.

He started chasing tornadoes and other storms 20 years ago and has continued to expand his explorations to include all types of extreme natural phenomena.
