Welcome to my personal travel stories of adventure, mayhem, foolishness... and swinging through the jungle of life. Come join the shenanigans as I take you around the world and around the block.






On the Road with Lovey (Part 1)

Traveling with small children is the ultimate adventure. The bags. The bottles. The bedding. What won't we do for our kids? Like that time I jumped off a plane....


Me and Jesus at the Rodeo

So what do you know about the rodeo? Do you think it's just a place to watch cowboys go flying into the dirt? Would it surprise you to learn the rodeo has a spiritual side as well? Trust me Pardner, it does. I saw that spirit at work, just inches away from a raging bull.


Our Own Private Portlandia

Aren't we all looking for that perfect place to settle down? Where the grass is literally greener? Well what could be greener than Portland, Oregon So Kris and I decided to take a vacation. Come along for the ride - it'll just be the three of us!


Riding, Flying and Pumping Gas with The First Lady

Is this really happening? Have I lost my grip on reality? I can't find my cameraman. And there's a helicopter waiting... hovering 100 feet above us. And Maria Shriver sits nearby, in a low-rider, putting on her makeup. But the craziest part is, this isn't a dream. Unfortunately.


Engine Trouble Plus Vomit

Scotch coolers, PF Flyers, plastic fishing rods and Brownie cameras. This can only mean one thing: Mid-century family vacation! Were you there? Or would you like a peek? Come on, let’s take a drive back in time. That is, until the car breaks down.


Up to 50% Off at the Third Tunnel of Aggression

Korea is one crazy place. Where else can you find insane, clown dictators and Gangnam Style only about an hour away from each other? Our mission was to explore one of the famous invasion tunnels there, but we somehow landed in the DMZ… gift shop. Join us in Neverland, for a trip down a real commie rabbit hole.


Paris On $1 A Day

Mes Amis – My friends We’re off to Paris where I get into a bit of difficulté. I’m young. I’m stupid. And I manage to get myself stuck inside a cemetery. With literally a million others. But they’re dead. What’s my excuse?


Edinburgh: You Must Think We Are Barbarians

Edinburgh for the holidays is kinda special. Beautiful, cold, dark and twinkly. With a just touch of the looney. We got there after a crazy flight. It was all castles, caverns and peaty drams in festive pubs. Join us down these merry lanes. Season’s greetings and a Happy New Year! Now here's a wee tale for ya.


Planes, Trains & Automobiles... Also Choppers & Butterflies

Hola! Today we’re flying with the President of Mexico to one of the wonders of our world. No, it's not a Mayan temple or a smoldering volcano. No one was sacrificed or conquered there. It's crazier than that. It took the imagination of a universe to divine a place this... startling. And to think it was just discovered some thirty years ago. Hop on board as we adventure to Wonderland...


Hey Redhead Boy!

We're traveling to Jamaica! Shooting video in Kingston. Jammin' with the First Lady. Things are cool. When suddenly the First Lady has some Second thoughts about this party. But it’s my job to keep it going. Will she stay or will she go?


Giving Thanks in Aguas Calientes

This is a story about disaster in Peru. But also recovery, adventure and thanks. We were just happy to make it out of that place alive. So of course we celebrated by eating. A big, festive meal, straight from the earth. Happy Thanksgiving!


Elaine! Bring Back My Plane!

You ever get so frustrated you surprise yourself with an outburst of anger? You ever get so angry you surprise yourself with an outburst of frustration? You may have... But I did, on the way home from Barbados... at Miami International Airport. It was cathartic for me. Though it did piss off a few hundred people. Guess if wasn't as cathartic for them...


Lost Bags & Found Briefs in Rajasthan

We’re on the road to Rajasthan! It's India – land of mystics, mobs and tikka masala. Just one problem: our bags didn’t make it. They’re somewhere in London… along with our camera batteries. And of course, my underwear. Yep, you guessed it - this is a travel/underwear story!


I Hate This F**N Town!

The guys and I are on a video shoot in Florence, Italy. We're covering a chef's table so we're eating our way through course after succulent course. They're in heaven but I caught some travel bug and am about to lose my antipasto... all over the Ponte Vecchio. Can I make it through the shoot or will I collapse upon the marble throne in my Florence Hotel bathroom?


A Presidential Sales Job

Amidst the giant sand dunes in Huacachina Peru, I find myself cajoling the Peruvian president to take a dune buggy ride. But he has a bum leg and wants to sit this one out. Only problem: he’s the star of this show. No president. No show. So it’s my job to hopefully get him up on his feet and then seated down in the dune buggy. They didn’t teach us any of this stuff in film school.


Aruba: Doing the Heimlich at the Hilton

Aruba is "One Happy Island", and we had explored it all on 4 wheelers, Harleys, Heli's and speedboats. We found a raucous party scene there but also ancient cave drawings and a magnificent coastline. Still, after a week of non-stop activity, nothing prepared us for the sudden upheaval of being thrown into a desperate situation.


Tell The King We Don't Want His Chopper!

During the course of our journey through the royal Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan we recorded the likes of Petra, the Gulf of Aqaba and the Wadi Rum. We saw ancient Roman cities and citadels. But nothing confounded us as much as the ancient riddle, “What’s a souk?”


Buzzing the Eagle's Nest

The chopper's wash blew down on the hundred happy tourists as we sailed over their heads. People were hanging onto their sausages. This was the shot.


Giraffe Attack!

Nairobi, Kenya: “Did you know a giraffe can kill a lion?” We didn’t. But we also didn’t know a giraffe can chase a film crew around in circles. This is just one of the many things we learned on our first day in Africa.
