About Jack

Jack is really a storyteller, international explorer, and humanitarian and everything else rolls out from there. As a writer, its what he does.  As a trial lawyer and trial skills teacher aroud the world, its his most important tool. As a former CIA officer, the only way to truly motivate people is to connect and to tell them a story that they can feel viscerally.  As a media analyst, what better way to make a point.  In the end, he tries to captivate his audience about the world and its people as much as he himself is captivated.

[I24 International] March 19th: Putin Wins Reelection in Russia. I'm shocked!


A Philosophical View

The world is moving faster and is seemingly more interconnected than at any time in human history. And yet, we seem more isolated than ever; more likely to stare at a screen rather than connect quietly, personally. My hope, in my own small way, is to change that. I've been lucky enough to work all over the world, in some of the strangest, most unusual, dangerous and ridiculous places.  Not bad for a kid who grew up in a trailer park. But as I've said, come along. It promises to be . . . well, I am not even sure yet. Maybe that's the best part.  Wherever I go, join me.


Editorial - My New Friend. I Swear We are Brothers.  

An incredible Day 2 teaching trial advocacy to Ugandan lawyers in Gulu. One of my colleagues, Jude Ogik, is an extraordinary Ugandan lawyer and teacher. He was just assigned 21 death penalty cases in the High Court. Contemplate the pressure and the capability it takes to do this. It's amazing.  Frankly the work that he did with former child soldiers with the LRA is nothing short of mindblowing.

I'm learning more than any of the students here and I'm one of the teachers. Incredible.

Well, here we go. So what is the point of life? To me, it is about doing good work and trying to leave this place a little better than when you started if you can. But in end, it is all about the journey. Up next, Ethiopia and South Sudan
