I’m a podcaster, author, TV personality, and journalist with a proclivity for all sorts of geekery including UFOs, space, science, technology, and geek culture. I'm fascinated by UFOs, and I had the unique experience of serving as a full-time UFO researcher and journalist for more than six years. I also had the great privilege of co-organizing and serving as the technical producer of the largest annual UFO conference in the world (recognized by the 2015 Guinness World Records) for six years. As a founding member of the UFO news organization, Open Minds, I had a blast writing for and editing the now defunct Open Minds magazine--an internationally distributed print magazine all about UFOs and extraterrestrial life. I've written for several media outlets including Geek magazine, Tech Times, and To The Stars. Check out my current geeky endeavors at www.RoguePlanet.tv

You may have seen me on television or on YouTube. I've appeared on Syfy, NatGeo, Geek & Sundry, and, most recently, I co-starred on History's Hangar 1: The UFO Files.
