About Geopolitics & Empire
THE HOST & PRODUCER
He obtained his Bachelor of Arts in History and Secondary Education from Northeastern Illinois University in the U.S.
From 2006-2007 he served as a volunteer with Peace Corps in Mongolia, albeit with voluntary early termination he chalks up to being a restless young man.
From 2008-2009 he obtained a Master of International Relations from the Geneva School of Diplomacy in Switzerland, where he also worked as a staff assistant with the Mission of the Czech Republic to the United Nations.
From 2010-2017 he was a Secondary Humanities teacher and adjunct professor of International Relations at the Tecnológico de Monterrey in México.
In 2017, under the auspices of Sharon Tennison’s “Center for Citizen Initiatives” and together with 30 other American “citizen diplomats”, he visited Russia for three weeks and met with academics, businessmen, citizens, and politicians, including former president Mikhail Gorbachev, to discuss U.S.-Russia relations with the hope of bringing the Russian people’s desire for peace to the attention of U.S. citizens and policy makers in Washington in the hopes of staving off Armageddon.
From 2017-2021 he returned to the steppes as a Global Perspectives teacher at the Nazarbayev Intellectual School in Semey, Kazakhstan.
History of Geopolitics & Empire
In ragtag fashion and flying by the seat of his pants, he created a YouTube channel he called “Dissident Thinker” where he simply uploaded the poorly edited guest interviews.
In January of 2020 Geopolitics & Empire was the first to interview the author of the Biological Weapons Convention, Dr. Francis Boyle, who was of the belief that coronavirus was an offensive biological warfare weapon having leaked out of the BSL-4 lab in Wuhan, China. That interview went absolutely viral on YouTube, hitting 300,000+ views before being taken down by Google. It lived on, being re-uploaded and discussed by media.
A year later, in February of 2021, the Associated Press in conjunction with NATO (Atlantic Council), wrote a hit-piece on Francis Boyle mentioning The Geopolitics & Empire Podcast. That same week, Geopolitics & Empire’s Patreon account was terminated.
