Biographical Information:

Julian Monroe Fisher was born in the town of Greenwood in the state of South Carolina in the United States of America. A graduate from Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina, he departed with a degree in Anthropology and Philosophy. Julian's resume in exploration reflects that he is a published author of two books relating tales from his travels between 1996 to 2003 when he was a freelance radio correspondent filing 'live' on-air reports from the trail as he travelled in and out of more than ninety countries on five continents around the globe. A producer with the BBC recently described Julian as "the first explorer to ever blog" referring to his online reports during his acclaimed adventure series 'Monroe's Talkabout the World'. Julian Monroe Fisher was also the writer, executive producer and co-diretcor of the ethnographical documentary film entitled 'Primate Questions of Conservation'. From Shanghai to Ulan Bator to Paramaribo to Luang Prabang to Lilongwe to Timbuktu, Julian's travels to more than twenty African countries during four Explorer Club flag sanctioned expeditions on the African continent have changed the perception of how the world views the African continent.
