I'm the founder of Utah's ONLY UFO Fest that happens in Cedar City, Utah every summer, and is growing steadily every year. I've been a pro photographer for over 18 years and did private commercialized National Parks tours around the Grand Circle of the Southwest for over 12 years. I also conducted interpretive wilderness tours in and outside the Grand Canyon.

Ever since then, much more has occurred in my life surrounding the topic.
