"My mission is to interview and film the most fearless people on earth and share their amazing stories with the world."

Interviewing world class rock climber and Yosemite Search And Rescue team member Gena Woods.

I call them the “Masters of Fear” and they are the subject of my new book and film.

Since I began my research I have personally interviewed, studied under, trained with, observed and spent hundreds of hours filming some of world's most amazing, talented and knowledgeable experts including:

World class skydivers, US Army special forces soldiers, Airborne Rangers, Navy S.E.A.L.S., Marine Force Recon, DEA agents, shark divers who swim with and hand feed sharks in the open ocean, Venomous snake handlers and snake venom extractors, firewalkers and fire eaters, firemen, law enforcement officers, martial arts experts, suspension performers who hang their bodies from steel hooks, alligator wrestlers, bear trainers, big cat keepers, world famous bull riders, bullfighters, high rise construction and steel workers, hang glider and experimental aircraft pilots, spearfishemen, big wave surfers, rock climbers, near death survivors and heroes of all shapes and sizes.

This isn’t a “book about books” I have read.

It's not a film about films that I have watched.

All the interviews and film are 100% authentic.

No one was paid for their interviews and the filming was done in real world conditions with no staging, no theatrical tricks or special effects. In some cases the film is shaky, out of focus and not of the best quality. But it is genuine and real.

Not only have I studied these people and their methods first hand, I have participated in many ultra hazardous activities with them, risking my life again and again in order to get an authentic unfiltered look into their amazing world of mental and emotional control.

I have had a venomous Cobra strike my camera and leave its venom on my lens. I have had sharks bite at my GoPro and bump their noses into my face as I was filming underwater. I have climbed on top of buildings in New York City to film roof workers and window washers. I have filmed climbers from the edge of sheer granite slabs 1000 feet high in Yosemite, I have held a venomous rattlesnake in my bare hands, I have sat on the back of a 2000 pound raging bull. I jumped off a 300 foot cliff in Moab Utah with a rope, a camera strapped to my head and one in my hand. I wondered if that would be the day I pushed it too far!

Why would I risk my life to write this book and make this film?

The main reason is that I made a commitment to myself to write the best book ever written and produce the best film ever made on the subject of fear.

I knew I had to face my greatest fears and put what I had learned to the ultimate test. If I passed the tests I survived. Fail, and it could mean severe injury or even death.

My new book and Documentary will give you the specific strategies, techniques and methods of how the most fearless people on earth think, move, breathe, communicate, deal with adversity and keep themselves motivated to achieve unbelievable feats of mental and physical performance.

If you want to get over any anxiety or phobia such as the fear of snakes, spiders, heights, flying in a airplane, driving over a bridge, riding in an elevator, being in a crowed room or even giving a speech to a large crowd, you will now be able to instantly get control of your mind and move forward with calmness, certainty and confidence.

If you are a leader, manager, negotiator, coach, mentor, or business person you simply cannot ignore what these amazing people can teach you. Not only will their methods help you control your mind and emotions, they will enable you to quickly and easily help those you are committed to helping.

I am currently interviewing the worlds leading experts; doctors, psychologists, psychiatrists, sociologists and researchers to learn more about the science of fear and how it affects individuals, groups, families, teams, business, governments, society and our every day lives.

If you have any questions, ideas, input, interview suggestions or would like to be notified when the book and film will be released please enter your name and email in the form at the bottom of the main page.
