The Road Less Traveled

I'm a photographer, a writer, a traveler, an adventurer, a horror fanatic and a weirdo. I'm the type of guy who will drive 500 miles to see a creepy cemetery, a horror movie filming location, a UFO crash site or a haunted house and enjoy every mile. I wrote a book about my first 5 years of travels and it will be released in the summer of 2014.

I’m also picking up a truckload (not really) of books from my publisher so if you want to buy Travelogue of Horror let me know and I’ll hook you up. If you don’t buy it, I’ll probably…

My what big feet you have...

Aliens in Pennsylvania

Today I visited my first UFO Festival and it was tucked away in the tiny village of Kecksburg, Pennsylvania.  I’d been to Kecksburg before when I was writing the “Travelogue of Horror” book.  You see, decades ago, an object fell from the sky and landed in this offshoot of Mount Pleasant, PA.  The US military descended upon the town and…

Home to the Lords of Salem?

Want to buy a Zombie House?

A Rob Zombie house, that is. I just learned that rock star turned horror director Rob Zombie is selling his ridiculously picturesque home in Connecticut. I visited his estate in 2009 (from the street, of course) and was a little disappointed that it wasn’t more imposing. I don’t know what I expected… Maybe some skeletons or pentagrams.  Or at least…

Night of the Living Dead filming locations

NOTLD90, a fantastic facebook page by Jonas Barbosa which celebrates Tom Savini’s Night of the Living Dead remake, recently featured some photos I took when visiting the filming locations for Travelogue of Horror. You can check them out on FB or I’ll include a gallery below. These were some of the first horror movie filming locations I visited in 2009…
