About

I’m originally from Little Rock, Arkansas but I currently live in Kishinev, Moldova.

I am a nerd who’s a fan of cars, blockchain, digital development, coffee, being an expat, Pabst Blue Ribbon, and a good pair of Levi’s.

I co-founded Discosloth, a digital advertising startup which is focused on results rather than jargon.

Successes and failures have included:

  • covering the 2014 Ebola outbreak in Liberia
  • taking 18 flights around the world in 40 days
  • bribing a Kenyan border guard $65 to let me leave the country
  • hiking to the top of a glacier in New Zealand
  • scuba diving in Bali
  • getting pulled over by police with AK-47s while driving a Mitsubishi in Monrovia
  • walking through Chernobyl

Countries visited: Liberia, Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, Senegal, South Africa, Morocco, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Iceland, Ireland, United Kingdom, France, Spain, Monaco, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Vatican City, Austria, Moldova, Russia, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania, Hungary, India, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Cambodia, Costa Rica, Mexico, United States, Australia, New Zealand

I’ve written a book, Write The Other Way: Or, How To Have Fun And Not Die In Other Countries, which covers some things I’ve done like filming a Liberian ebola unit in a hazmat suit, riding a beater motorcycle around Uganda, being stranded in northern India, and turning down baggies of cocaine in Costa Rica.
