Kevin Tao Mohs is a cable television executive who has worked at TLC, Animal Planet, The Discovery Channel and The National Geographic Channel in various creative capacities. His fascination with mythic creatures and the supernatural took root early in life as a young child when his father’s job brought the family from Texas to Japan to live. There he was exposed to a rich tradition of stories about ghosts, demons and monsters. His father’s profession eventually brought the family to Germany, where tales of good versus evil in the form of medieval knights battling demonic creatures came into vivid focus.
His life experiences proved invaluable in his professional endeavors, especially in his work at Animal Planet as an Executive Producer on programs such as Dragons: A Fantasy Made Real, Lost Tapes and River Monsters. While at Animal Planet, he also contributed to the development of Mermaids: The Body Found. Mohs has consulted on two books for young readers (Dragons: A Fantasy Made Real and The Most Extreme – inspired from the television series he created). While at Discovery, his team oversaw such series as Deadliest Catch, Gold Rush Alaska and Mythbusters. Mohs lives in Maryland outside Washington DC with his wife, two kids and various pets.
He’s hard at work on his next story.
