Jeff is currently executive producing the television series “War On Top of the World,” which examines the role and mission of U.S. nuclear forces as weapons of mass destruction proliferate around the world in the 21st century.
In addition to the GUARDIANS project, he is also producing a theatrical feature film about the life of an extraordinary Native American named Senator Tom Brewer, tentatively titled “Akicita – The Warrior”. Jeff produced the ground-breaking documentary film “America’s Marine Aviators” with director Dana Altman, a film which tells the unknown story of one of America’s most valiant fighting forces. The film was honored for its editorial and emotional realism; the entire film was assembled using only the voices of Marines and their families.
Bolton became the first person in the history of the B-2A Spirit stealth bomber program to both fly and film aboard the highly classified jet. Bolton has flown in more than thirty current and vintage fixed and rotary wing combat aircraft including the B-2A Spirit, B-52H Stratofortress, FA-18D Hornet, AV-8B Harrier, F-16D Viper, and AH-1W Cobra.
Jeff is also in another extremely rare club – he’s one of the few civilians in the world to complete the U.S. Navy’s grueling water survival training program for pilots, enabling him to fly in front line military combat jets and helicopters at sea in the carrier environment with the U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps. He has completed carrier operations at sea on the USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71), with multiple catapult launches and arrested landings in the Hornet.
Bolton also stars on demand as a dynamic radio talk show host on Entercom affiliate 1210-WPHT in Philadelphia. In his long career he has been featured on legendary talk radio stations in San Francisco, San Antonio, Omaha, and Dallas. He’s also seen and heard nationally as a guest and host on numerous television networks and programs including ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, MSNBC, The Rush Limbaugh Program, The Glenn Beck Program and The Sean Hannity Show. Jeff has been nationally and internationally recognized for creating groundbreaking television and talk radio broadcasts from Iraq, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka and Japan. Jeff also completed the first-ever live talk radio broadcasts at sea with the U.S. Navy aboard the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70).
The extraordinary life Jeff lives makes him a frequent keynote speaker and lecturer to universities, businesses, associations and non-profits. His presentations and speeches are applauded for their authenticity, raw emotion, and uplifting messages. With more than twenty years embedding in military commands, combat zones and natural disaster zones around the world, Jeff now also serves a highly respected, uniquely qualified politics and communications subject matter expert at the U.S. Army Combined Arms Center at Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas and he travels extensively teaching in U.S. military commands.
Jeff has a deep and abiding respect for America’s military families and he assists and supports several non-profit organizations who serve military members and Gold Star families, including Honor Our Marines, the Seven Stars Foundation, the American Fallen Soldiers Project, and the Cavanaugh Flight Museum.
A native Texan, Jeff is a graduate of Southern Methodist University (SMU) in Dallas, Texas. He began his writing career there, and today produces magazine features around the world from the seats of supercars and fighter jets for publications such as MediaNews Group Inc., Wings of Gold, The Hook, SMOKE Magazine and AUTOWEEK Magazine. He is currently studying for a master’s degree in leadership at Dallas Baptist University (DBU).
