About

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

I’ve been to over 40 countries, and try to add more each year.

I co-founded Discosloth, a digital advertising consulting firm which is focused on results rather than jargon. We work in sectors across the world, with an emphasis on United States, Australia, European, and Russian markets.

I’m a fan of blockchain, international business, digital development, decentralization, and German cars.

Successes and failures have included:

  • wearing a hazmat suit through a Liberian ebola unit during the 2014 outbreak
  • taking 18 flights around the world to 6 countries 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

Media

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.
