Throughout schooling and various expeditions, premonition experiences stimulated continuing studies on a number of research topics, leading to the completion of his non-fiction works. His subjects of choice focus primarily on ancient megalithic sites, mysterious relics, unidentified craft, unknown creatures, and a slew of strange mysteries that both science and religion struggle with finding logical explanations for.

“We are part of something unimaginably bigger than perception allows one to perceive.”
