I am the Co-Founder of Atlas Obscura (why, this very site right here), the co-author of the Atlas Obscura book, and the host of the AO Youtube series 100 Wonders. My co-founder Josh and I started Atlas Obscura because we felt that the world was still this huge, bizarre, vast place filled with astounding stuff. With Atlas we hoped to share our sense of wonder at this truly strange world we live in. While I fancy myself an intrepid explorer, I am also the father of two of the cutest, most charming children in the world. They truly make my world more magical. I do a lot of embarrassing dad stuff these days.
