About.me
We have mapped the entire world. We will not live long enough to see space freely and have no uncharted vistas to claim here below. So, we shall reclaim and explore the places that we have already forgotten, for we were born before the stars, but too long after the sails. These are my travels and my wonderful companions.
I am Jeffrey Koval Jr. and this site is a small collection of my writing, most notably about my adventures travelling and urban exploring. I have taken liberties to adequately shroud the exact location of these properties (and the identities of those traveling with me) to dissuade any potential vandalism, but if you feel that I have failed to keep these places safe, please contact me.

We enter these places merely as amateur historians, respectable visitors, and travelers to a time before our own. As the saying goes, "take only photographs, leave only footprints." 


I am have a degree in business economics and live in New Jersey. I am now in graduate school. I love alternative media, reading, epic film, writing, the healthcare industry & the public sector, and embracing the gaming lifestyle. Here is some of my work.

Brief, personal vlogs that I hope to embody the former, nostalgic glory of YouTube in its early days as a more-social platform with, as well as nonsense and gaming.
