Dean Dunbar is a registered blind adventurer and extreme sports enthusiast, based in Perthshire, Scotland.
In the early days, 9 out of 10 outdoor companies would say "no" when Dean wanted to come along to play.
In 2002 Dean created and launched his website extremedreams.co.uk to say thank you to the awesome 1 out of 10 companies who said yes!
Since launching the website in 2002, Dean has been asked to talk at many different events, but being scared of an audience he couldn’t see, he always said "no".
In 2012, Dean finally said "yes", and hasn’t stopped. He has talked at the Scottish Outdoor Pursuits Show, twice, the Fort William Mountain Festival, Dundee University, and for several private groups. In January 2016 he is booked to talk at the Buxton Adventure Festival, and the Adventure Travel Show in London.
In 2014, Dean was invited to introduce one of his films at the Dundee Mountain Film Festival. This year, 2015, he has been asked back to introduce another one.
If Dean isn’t preparing for his next talk, he’ll be training for his next challenge!
