About me

I'm a career observer and lifelong student of human behavior. I'm endlessly curious about what we do and hold dear as we navigate our short turn on this planet.      


In roles spanning academia, arts and culture institutions, factual TV, and my own bootstrapped media company, I’ve learned to be a crack creator, curator, and communicator of ideas and stories.


I love what I do, and I love to share it with others.

My Hats

 

Archaeologist, Consultant, and TV Presenter

I present complex ideas to the viewing public in clear and engaging terms. I do background research and lead unscripted on-the-ground investigations of unexplored or unexplained sites. I advise production companies on factual content and fact-check works in progress.


Stories from the Field

I've explored the ruins of an ancient city in Kenya, followed the caravans of Ethiopian salt traders, investigated a Chilean desert petroglyph, traversed the brutal landscapes of Augusto Pinochet's regime, studied Neolithic ritual structures and Iron Age cave art, and traced 5,000 years of human history in a single day on Scotland's Orkney Islands.


Watch what I'm up to on The Discovery/Science Channel (What on Earth, Strange Evidence, Forbidden History, Ancient Unexplained Files), History Channel (Secrets in the Ice), and Smithsonian Channel (Treasures).
