Thayer Walker

Author and Correspondent for Outside magazine

As an author and correspondent for Outside magazine for more than a decade, Thayer covers science, adventure, exploration, and the natural world. He has explored the Cayman Trench in a homemade submarine, survived 20 days stranded on a desert island, once escaped the jaws of an irascible jaguar, and discovered the tenth largest diamond ever found at Arkansas’s Crater of Diamonds State Park. With his wife, artist Jane Kim, he is the cofounder of Ink Dwell, a studio dedicated to exploring the wonders of the natural world. Thayer’s first book, The Wall of Birds, about Kim’s monumental mural celebrating the diversity and evolution of birds at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, is published by HarperCollins. His second book, The River Runner, will be published in 2022 by Random House.
