After I graduated from the University of Maryland with a degree in microbiology, I began a career as an industrial microbiologist. A couple of years later I started a local blog called DC Bachelor, and lived in constant paranoia that my employer would bust me for the macho content. Eventually I changed the name to Roosh V because I no longer cared about getting fired.

Six years into my career, and a little over two years after I started DC Bachelor, I quit my job and finished my first book called Bang, a textbook for picking up girls. Afterwards, I spent six rough months in South America, which I detailed in my second book, a memoir called A Dead Bat In Paraguay. I then spend the next ten years living a nomadic life, mostly in South America and Eastern Europe.

I’ve released nearly twenty books since 2007 but unpublished most of them in 2019 after receiving the gift of faith and returning back to my baptismal church. You can view all my current books at RooshVStore.com.

I’m also active on Twitter, YouTube, and my forum Roosh V Forum.
