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.
