Leon Logothetis
Born and raised in London, Leon Logothetis has always had a passion for interacting with people. He loved the camaraderie of making new friends and treasured the adventure of travel. This passion prompted him to swap his life as a city broker to pursue his dreams of traveling the world. His nomadic spirit has taken him across the globe to exotic locations like Nepal, Mongolia & the Galapagos Islands. Leon’s first foray into the Television world was with the Discovery Channel’s hit show "Destination Future". His involvement in this show allowed him to combine his love of travel and television, which he later turned into a hit series with the creation of “Amazing Adventures of a Nobody.” The UK’s Sky TV was the first to air ‘Amazing Adventures of a Nobody’ and following a successful first season, the show was quickly licensed to National Geographic International and aired in over 100 countries around the world, including the United States’ on the Fox Reality Channel and Canada’s OLN. L Now based in L.A, Leon formed Shankly Productions, through which he produces ‘Nobody.’

Angela Nickerson
As a child, Angela Nickerson's favorite books were those set in “the olden days” in places far more exotic than Dallas, Texas. Angela translated that passion for history and travel into a column of local biographical profiles as well as her first book, A Journey into Michelangelo’s Rome. When she was fifteen, Angela’s grandparents gave her a life-changing birthday gift: they took her to Europe. Years later, after getting a college degree she went on to Washington University in St. Louis and earned a Masters of Arts in Teaching. Teaching at small, private schools, she applied her love of art and music, history and travel in her classroom. Angela married an Italian-American with memories of playing as a child at Ostia Antica and romping through the Colosseum. Now she enjoys traveling to Italy several times a year – often escorting small groups of people. In doing so she combines the great passions in her life: art and history, travel and, of course, writing.
