My name is Jacob Bogle and I live in the Tampa, FL area.
I have been a North Korea analyst since 2013 and created the most comprehensive map of the country that is publicly available.
I also have a history as a certified architectural drafter, pharmacy technician, and briefly studied theology at Liberty University.
I have been a numismatist for 24 years and a political activist for 18 years.
Aside from North Korea, I have extensive experience in coin dealing and appraising, as well as working on federal, state, and local political campaigns.
If you need one of my big three: NORTH KOREA, COINS, POLITICAL CONSULTING - then contact me!
I am available for interviews and collaborations regarding North Korea and open-source intelligence.
