How Did I Ever Get To Visit WAKE ISLAND??!

Many people have asked this question. How was I luck enough to visit Wake Island?

It wasn't a pleasure trip. It wasn't some weekend assignment to capture the Earth in its spender or almost purest state.

How did I manage to visit such a remote spot? HAHAHA.My entire life feels like its been an adventure.

All of my travels, Hong Kong, Philippines, Guam, Wake Island, Dubai, Iraq have been work related.

I have provided a few links that could help someone find employment as a government contracted employee on Wake Island. Chugash Support Services wasn't my employer. My employers contract on Wake Island is done.

Wake Island is very isolated. If you are an outdoors person and want to fish, swim, boat, in the inner lagoon, this is the place for you.

If you are not members of the press or a high ranking military officer on official business, I think it would be hard to visit Wake Island.

In April, a photo editor from Rand McNally & Company had contacted me about the photo that is on the Wikipedia page: Wake Island.

They offered me some money to use that photo for their Classroom Website. I also got my name credited to my photo and of course this will be one of the photos I use for my portfolio.

If you view the link to the classroom you will come to a login screen. I can't help you get on the main website. However, you may view the demo.
