The Past Preservers team of Expert Presenters is growing!

Past Preservers People is proud to announce the latest addition to our presenter team: J.J. Kelley, Explorer, Director & Host.

In J.J.’s own words, “Storytelling for me is more than a business. I want to leave this planet better off for having me as one of its inhabitants. That means working with organizations that have values and a passion that aligns with my own. So when it came to choosing an agency to represent me; I made it my mission to find a group with integrity, a moral compass and one that would strive for the most visionary projects of our age. After a lengthy search—with many dead ends—I found what I was looking for in Past Preservers. They are an agency with profound ethics and drive. I couldn’t be more honored to sign with them as my exclusive representatives.”

About JJ Kelley

J.J. Kelley is an Emmy-nominated filmmaker and explorer focusing wild places around the planet. He’s the host of a new 8-part Travel Channel series, “Lost In The Wild,” which investigate some of history’s greatest adventures gone wrong. From being a director on the Bering Sea’s “Deadliest Catch” to leading the exclusive coverage of the tomb of Christ being opened for the first time in 800 years, Kelley’s countless expeditions and work for National Geographic all began when he decided—at age 19—to load his pickup truck up with camping gear and drive from the lower 48 up to Seward, Alaska. An avid adventurer, J.J. is an Appalachian Trail Thru-hiker and has biked the length of Alaska to the Arctic Ocean, paddled from Alaska to Seattle in a homemade kayak, and journeyed the full length of India’s Ganges River. A fellow at the Explorers Club, Kelley’s travels have instilled a sense of protecting the planet, and he brings a unique mix of humor and grit to subjects he investigates

Nigel J. Hetherington, Founder & CEO of Past Preservers, says ” We are very proud to be adding J.J. to our team of expert presenters, he will be a great addition and we are so looking forward to where this journey will take us both”.
