Mike Corey is a marine biology graduate, turned filmmaker, with an intense passion for travel.
From an early age, Mike has always been fascinated with the lesser known parts of our world. His lifetime of curiosity has sent him searching out the creatures and locations that most avoid, while spending a decade competing in both fencing and breakdancing on the side. He has since settled into a fast-moving career as a travel YouTuber, adventure filmmaker, and TV presenter.
After receiving his Bachelor of Science in Canada, Mike backpacked the world to volunteer as a research assistant for scientists studying ocean conservation. Bringing a camera along for these trips allowed him to capture the material he needed to win several international travel video competitions which kicked off a career in travel filmmaking.
After working for several years creating short films for tourism brands around the world, he turned his sights to YouTube and begun an adventure travel channel focusing on the bizarre attractions and unique cultures of the world. Participating in exploding hammer festivals, getting tattooed by a head hunter tattooist, and scuba diving in hydrogen sulphide are just a few of the adventures he’s taken his viewers on.
Mike never runs away from an adventure, no matter how strange it may be. He is now based in Mexico City, but is more often than not away searching out new (and sometimes a little bit crazy) experiences.
