Leigh has extensive outdoors skills experience spanning over thirty five years. Many of these years include providing remote/special operations, expedition medical support and search & rescue operations on five continents in harsh environments ranging from arctic, jungle, desert to high altitude mountains. Leigh often teaches these skills to SWAT/Combat/Tactical Medics. He is an active trainer/consultant in the areas of security, tactical medicine and anti-terrorism to both the private and public sector.
Leigh was introduced to the outdoors at an early age which led to his getting very involved in backpacking, whitewater rafting, canoeing, caving, rock climbing and mountaineering. He regularly teaches survival, visual tracking, land navigation, primitive skills and nature awareness having used these skills in various regions around the world.
Leigh is a Georgia Master Naturalist, and is a member of the International Society of Professional Trackers, Society of Primitive Technology, and he is a founding member of the Georgia Tracker’s Alliance.
Leigh has a keen interest in the areas of enhanced human performance, mind/body medicine, extended human capabilities, anomalous cognition, and applied psi. He has conducted considerable research into these areas around the globe and has trained numerous individuals in these various modalities. This includes the training of a considerable number of persons in Applied Remote Viewing in the United States, United Kingdom and Russia. Leigh has written extensively on these topics, and has been published in several international journals. His work has been translated into several languages including Japanese, Russian, Italian, Spanish, and Indonesian.
Martial arts have been of serious interest for Leigh since age nine and he has black belts in three disciplines. His main interest in this area, however, lies with the Kadochnikov System. The Kadochnikov System utilizes body mechanics, and integrates mind, body, and novel biophysical energetics. Leigh was in the first group of Americans ever to study with Mr. Aleksey Alekseyevich Kadochnikov at the Kuban Military Institute in Krasnodar, Russia in April 2001.
Leigh has been involved in sasquatch research for many years, having had his first encounter at age seventeen. Since that time he has had numerous, close encounters with sasquatch-like creatures in many locations around the globe. Over time Leigh has built a sasquatch profile suggestive of particular behaviors and ecology. By using innovative methods and tracking skills he has had the opportunity to experience several close encounters with the sasquatch. He has been instrumental in establishing the first tracker training program for sasquatch field researchers (2004). This program was started within the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO) and has since grown to include many other such organizations.
It is Leigh’s view that only by becoming more aware on multiple levels, ranging from our relationship with nature and the world we live in, to that of extended non-local awareness, that we as a species will actualize our true potential.
Additionally, Leigh enjoys playing the didjeridu and exploring wild places in his Land Cruiser.
