I’m a traveler and writer. I’ve appeared in media like the Los Angeles Times and BBC London regarding my work in North Korea. You may also be on this page because you are interested in another genre that I write about: the supernatural.

I grew up on a ranch outside of Tucson, Arizona as the youngest of three much older siblings. Early interest in media, film and current affairs inspired me to attend the University of Arizona in their Media Arts department, with additional focuses on Japanese language and business administration. I then proceeded to work mostly independently and remotely. From 2013 onward I have placed almost all of my effort into my books and freelance business.
In 2012 while I was in Thailand I suffered a massive injury on my right femur, which required lengthy hospital and surgical care. After making a full recovery, the experience has helped me dedicate to personal fitness and a lifestyle that is both emotionally and physically healthy.
In 2015 I returned to traveling the world and living out of a backpack.
Currently, I live in Los Angeles, CA
On this page you will get an exclusive insight into the mostly unseen world of North Korea. This is through my travelogue “North Korea Uncloaked” and the associated documentary-short that I produced throughout the summer of 2012 alongside a team of collaborators.
You can also browse my photo collections of Thailand, as I continually explore new regions of southeast Asia, and the inevitable adventures that follow me.

Support my work chronicling North Korea and other places in the world by becoming a citizen photo-journalist yourself and purchasing a Canon Rebel t3i from my affiliate store below, and I’ll make a tiny percentage of the sale. Buying a good DSLR was one of the best purchase decisions in my life. Even with a cheap lens, I still produce great images on the t3i because this professional grade camera has such a good sensor.
