It was during his service project for Eagle Scout at the Maryland School for the Blind that he read aloud for the first time, which he cites as one of the reasons he became interested in narrating.
He attended Towson University in Baltimore County, MD.
He currently lives in San Francisco, CA where he attempts to "pursue a life of serial monogamy with a very understanding woman."
Some of the things that he has done are unexpected. He sang professionaly with the Baltimore Opera, sold over $100 milliion of "simulated" diamonds on QVC and appeared in several dozen commercials for Tylenol.
He has hosted Worst Case Scenarios for TBS, The Most for The History Channel, No Relation for FX and New York Expeditions for PBS.
His first work with Discovery includes a trip to the Valley of the Golden Mummies to host Egypt Week Live!. In addition to the job that he is most famous for his work for Discover now includes announcing for American Chopper, American Hot Rod, and Deadliest Catch.
He is best known for getting down and dirty as the host of Dirty Jobs where he has done jobs ranging from cleaning out sewers in LA to assiting in whale autopsies. Getting dirty and smelly are requirements of this job and he seems to love it.
I would get dirty and smelly with him any day of the week.
