J.R. Harris is an explorer, psychologist, and self proclaimed “curious dude.” Always has been, always will be. Even now at “like, a hundred and twenty years old” he’s not really a sit on the beach sipping margaritas kind of guy. He unwinds by getting WAY out there.

Northern Alaska, Northern Sweden, Greenland, Lapland, the Alps, the Pyrenees, Tasmania, Patagonia, the Andes Mountains— not only has J.R. been, but he’s probably made friends with the locals and sipped cognac on top of the tallest mountain. Which is a little unusual for Queens kid from the projects, he knows.

Shot in J.R’s beloved New York City, BORN CURIOUS explores the life of the explorer. It is in turns comedic and lyrical, tense and heartwarming and will inspire even the most timid among us to live braver and bolder every day.
