125: Overcoming Fear Through Travel – Mike Corey
Today’s guest on The Expat Money Show is Mike Corey, a marine biology graduate, turned filmmaker, with an intense passion for travel. 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. He has since settled into a fast-moving career as a travel YouTuber, adventure filmmaker, and TV presenter.
