Savagely Adventurous and Thoughtful

In a day when a Kardashian is deemed multifaceted for having her own perfume, while allowing cameras to follow her to lunch, it’s especially impressive to gaze upon the resume of someone who's multitalented. The UK’s beautiful advocate for environmental care, Roz Savage, is multiremarkable. After leaving her corporate job, Savage decided it was time to tackle the waves of Earth’s great oceans. In fact, she’s become the first woman to row the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. Any guesses as to why National Geographic named Savage as Adventurer of the Year in 2010? And that was before Savage braved the pirate-infested waters of the Indian Ocean last year. To hear her stories and insights on our planet’s health, catch Savage at The Winspear Opera House, 2403 Flora St., at 8 p.m. Tuesday as a part of the NatGeo Live! series. Tickets prices start at $20.
