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 arts and culture institutions, the private sector, academia, primetime 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.

Stories from the Field

I have explored the ruins of an ancient city in Kenya, followed the caravans of Ethiopian salt traders, investigated a Chilean desert petroglyph, and traversed the brutal landscapes of Augusto Pinochet's regime.

Learn more about it on Discovery/The Science Channel: What on Earth? and Forbidden History.
