In his 2011 book, “Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Zombies,” Mogk has chronicled his expertise in zombie science, history and survival, as well as film and pop culture, and he will be sharing his knowledge with the audience in one riveting, possibly life saving, presentation on the undead.

After his scientific research, as well as survival training with the French Foreign Legion, Mogk founded the Zombie Research Society which is committed to being the 1 percent of people likely to survive a Zombie Apocalypse. With his accolades and area of expertise, Mogk has been featured on National Geographic Channel, Spike’s hit series Deadliest Warrior, and AMC’s “The Talking Dead.”
