Brief Bio

In May, 2013 I served, with six former members of the United States Congress, as the Moderator of the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure in Washington, DC. This is the brief biography posted at

"Joseph G. Buchman, PhD (Joe) is an innovator in online higher education and lives in the mountains outside of Park City, Utah with his wife, four children, three Oldsmobile Auroras, two cats and the occasional wild moose. He grew up in Southern Indiana, just outside of Louisville, Kentucky where, after earning a BS in Marketing from Indiana University, he worked in radio and television (WHAS, WLRS, ESPN and others) before moving to Augusta, Georgia where he was the Creative Services Director for WAGT-TV the NBC television affiliate there. After managing the advertising and promotion process that led to WAGT becoming the fastest growing television station in the nation, and after being awarded six local Emmys, Joe left television to earn an MBA (MS in Management) from the Krannert Graduate School of Management at Purdue University, a PhD from Indiana University, and spent the next 15 years in traditional Higher Education (earning tenure in 1996).

"In the summer of 2001, he left on-campus higher education to teach online and more fully pursue his life-long dream of adventure travel (which has taken him to Mongolia five times – including to the Altai mountains for the August 2008 total solar eclipse (his third), and the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. Later that year he ran for the US House of Representatives as the Libertarian Candidate in Utah's First District receiving 6,287 votes while calling for legislation and Congressional Hearings to protect whistle-blowers regarding "waste, fraud, criminal activity and the UFO issue." He has been a guest on Coast to Coast AM twice, as well as a exopolitical activist and speaker at the X-conferences in 2008 and 2009. In May 2013 Dr. Buchman served as a key organizer, moderator, and lead Congressional Staff researcher for the Washington DC based Citizen Hearing on Disclosure. He is the founder of "Grassroots Exopolitics" through his "message in an Internet bottle" website"

Dr. Buchman also served as one of three members of the audit committee for the national Libertarian Party (2013) and as the interim chair of the national Libertarian Party Platform Committee (2013/2014).
